Principles and Ground Rules for Dialogue

I was going through one of those 'unsorted stuff box' I have been having for quite sometime, found this interesting book mark that explains (as it says) "Principles and Ground Rules of Dialogue". Been trying to figure out who gave this to me, not very sure, but I guess I must have picked it up from one of those workshops or training I have attended to.

Its not much, simply put and quite helpful if you really read them down. Its worth a share:

Principles and Ground Rules for Dialogue

  • The purpose of dialogue is to understand and to learn from one another; no one can "win" a dialogue.
  • All dialogue participants speak for themselves, not as a representative of others" interest. 
  • In a dialogue, everyone is treated as an equal; status and stereotypes are left at the door.
  • Be open and listen to others, especially when you disagree. Suspend judgement.
  • Identify and test assumptions - even your own. 
  • Listen carefully and respectfully to the views of other; acknowledge you have heard the other, especially when you disagree. 
  • Look for common ground.
  • Express disagreement with ideas, not the personality or motives; disagree without being disagreeable.
  • Respect all points of view. 
Cheers :)

Groundwater is a precious and the most widely distributed resource of the earth and unlike any other mineral resource, it gets annual replenishment from the meteoric precipitation. The worlds total water resources are estimated at 1.37 x 108 Million hectares (ha-m). Of these global water resources about 97.2% is salt water mainly in oceans, and only 2.8% is available as Fresh water. Out of the 2.8%, 2.2% is available as surface water and 0.6% as groundwater. Even out of this 2.2% of surface water, 2.15% is fresh water in glaciers and ice caps and only of the order of 0.01% (1.36x104 M ha-m) is available in lakes and reservoirs and 0.0001% in streams. Out of 0.6% of stored groundwater, only about 0.3% (41.1 x 104 M ha-m) can be economically extracted with the present drilling technology, the remaining is unavailable as it is below 800 m.

Youth Involvement in Scouting - Maldives: National Rover Scout Council (NRC)

Concept Paper 2
National Rover Scout Council (NRC)


Youth Involvement is an area in Scouting that has been debated and discussed throughout the scout world. Involving Youth or to be specific Young Adults (18-26) has been a priority at regional as well as world level in Scouting. Scouting is a Movement FOR the youth therefore it’s only fair that young adults or the youth have a say in the decisions that are made that will directly or indirectly effect them. As a movement that works to create a better society that will lead ultimately to create a better world, with its purpose to create better citizens by giving its youth members leadership skills and citizenship training it is essential that youth be given priority and status within the movement.

At world level there are Youth Advisors elected for the World Scout Conference to be members of the World Scout Committee to raise Youth issues and give their opinions and suggestions to the decisions that are made for the betterment of the movement.

Youth Involvement in Scouting - Maldives: National Scout Youth Forum

Concept Paper 1
National Scout Youth Forum


Scout Youth forums provide opportunities for the young people in scouting to express their views and make recommendations on issues that interest them, enabling them to develop the skills necessary to strengthen their capacity to take part in decision making process. Youth forums provide opportunity to the national and local levels; to listen to the views of young members on issues concerning them.

Proposed Youth Forum Concept for Maldives

Provincial OR Regional Youth Forum:

The geographical distribution of Islands in Maldives makes it difficult for organizing any major scale event in the county.

Youth Involvement in Scouting - Maldives: Introduction


There are three age groups in Maldives that the Scout Association Maldives target its programs; the Cub Scout age group (7-12), the Scout age (12-18) and the Rover Scouts (18-26).

Membership growth is one of the key issues that the Scout Association of Maldives is facing today, in terms of leaders as well as in youth members. One of the prime reason is because the scout association has paid very less attention to the adolescents or young adults; the Rover age group. This has led to the loss of membership and increase dropout of members in the movement.

Proposal to establish Maldives National Scout Foundation ...

[This is a proposal that I proposed to the Scout Association of Maldives in July 2010.]

Maldivian National Scout Foundation


In order to carry out different events, activities and programs the Scout Association needs necessary financial support and material capability. However, currently the Association is more a depended organization in Maldives than a self-sufficient organization. The Association has no income source to generate enough financial wealth to facilitate, Organize, conduct or coordinate its activities and events throughout the country. Due to lack of financial capability and lack of material wealth the Association has not been able to fully operate or properly function from its very start. The Association has been a dependent to the annual financial assistance provided by the Ministry of education which until recently the Association had been granted by the government. Being the largest youth movement in Maldives with members in all corners of the country it’s important to secure and maintain financial resources and funds that are deemed necessary for the association to reach to them and to run its programs, events and activities.
