Dr. Nirmalan Dhas of Foundation for Civilization Transformation and Conscious Evolution, Colombo initiated a discussion on global warming.

Dr. Mussammil Cader of Samadana(m) Organization, Kandy  conducted a membership survey on non  violent conflict resolution and good governance. Around 300 organizations have been contacted in this process.
