Earth Transformation Declaration
Speakers and Participants at the May 11-13, 2007 conference on Earth Transformation: New Science and Technologies, Dolphins Consciousness and Exopolitics (Kona, Hawaii) agreed by consensus on the Earth Transformation Declaration . The conference was held on Hawaii 's Big Island and featured 14 international experts who approved by consensus a Declaration for launching an "Earth Transformation movement". The "Earth Transformation Declaration" comprises principles "intending to transform the Earth in a sustainable, peaceful and life affirming manner by adopting a range of environmental, scientific, spiritual and political principles and practices."
A pre-conference draft had been electronically circulated to all speakers for feedback in order to develop a document for physical circulation at the conference. At the opening of the conference on Friday May 11, 2007, a draft was circulated to all participants where they could comment on each principle in written form. Participant feedback was summarized and helped guide speakers at a subsequent luncheon on the second day (Saturday) to discuss the items which had strongest support from conference participants. Speakers present at the luncheon agreed by consensus on the revisions to the Declaration based on participant feedback and speaker comments.
Conference participants were then invited to attend a special session on Saturday afternoon where they could hear the results of the participant feedback process and what was discussed at the Speaker luncheon. Based on further participant comments and suggested revisions a final version was developed. During the concluding panel session, the final version of the Hawaii Declaration on Peaceful Relations with Extraterrestrial Civilizations was formally adopted by consensus.
Following upon the success of the 2006 Hawaii Conference on Extraterrestrial Civilizations and World Peace, this was the second time consensus had been achieved on major issues concerning the development of societal relations with extraterrestrial civilizations. The consensus process was chaired by Dr Michael Salla with assistance by the conference rapporteur, Hugh Matlock. What follows is the Declaration adopted by consensus at the 2007 Conference and subsequently circulated on the internet.
