"The World Wisdom Alliance (WWA) is a new community of like-minded groups, organizations, and individuals actively addressing our shared societal and environmental challenges and opportunities, both global and local. The WWA was launched in Toronto on July 28, 2006 with the support of The Club of Budapest Canada in association with the World Wisdom Council (WWC).

"The WWA's core concepts are: Consciousness > Connection > Communication > Collaboration. A multi-faceted Web presence is currently being designed that will allow community members — through communication, dialogue, and collaborative action — to deal more effectively with those challenges and opportunities than each could in isolation. The main Communication Centre is being established in Toronto, Canada under the auspices of The Club of Budapest Canada. For the latest information on implementation of the WWA Web site, check

"The focus of the World Wisdom Alliance communications network is to catalyze action on the most critical global issues in a way that synergizes the wisdom of leading world experts with local activists who are making a difference, and simultaneously, through the World Wide Web, to inspire a widespread creative focus of energy and activities. The mechanism is a new, web-based ‘internet community’.

"This ‘wisdom community’ will feature a new type of hybrid Website which will present four dimensions of new media-experience; communication, multi-perspective video, web-linked networking and issue content (meta-knowledge). The new communication network will interconnect ‘global issues’ experts with many ‘global citizens’ at any distance, to interested groups (and schools) and, through an interactive Web portal, to all other interested individuals wherever they are.

"The Web portal will further give access to background and archival materials and have virtual spaces for discussion, expression and creative interactivity. The intention is to shift the best ideas and research into necessary actions and practices.

"New methodologies, extending the ideas and work of the Toronto School of Communication (McLuhan, Innis, Havelock, Carpenter, et al), which allow a synthesis of new modes of awareness, new forms of organization and new types of presentation and experience, will be integrated into the website and communication network."
