Forum for Global Exchange

Fourth World nations the world over are at the center of global events. Whether the topic is health and healing one finds the ancient knowledge of Fourth World nations in the center of the debate. If the topic is climate change or environmental protection, that Fourth World nations occupy territories on which 80% of the world's last remaining biodiversity are located nations hold the key to how to preserve life on the planet. Great power politics between states' governments most often have Fourth World nations at the center of contests over wealth and power. Their strategic importance in each locality far outweighs their size.

When Fourth World nations engage each other or states' governments they are involved in a GLOBAL EXCHANGE. This program aims to facilitate the exchanges between Fourth World Nations and between these nations and the various international states.

It is the prospect of dialogue and negotiations between Fourth World Nations and their neighbors that remains the focus of this program.
