The join forces of creative like-minded people lead by Kazuma and Anna resulted in the organisation of the SIETAR Forum 2012+38, International Conference 27-29 September 2012 in Berlin, Germany.

To invite the leading edge of practice and thought to become present, we imagined a world, in 2050, where integral consciousness had become the average level of development of individuals throughout all cultures, and where integral competence had found its way into our brain, mind, culture and systems. We imagined that people would be versed in cosmopolitan communication practices, which ““enables coordination among groups with different, even incommensurate, social realities.”(Pearce, 1989, p. 169).
