The 6th Annual Conference
World Congress of Ethnic Religions
The 2003 conference of the WCER is to take place in 7-8-9 of August , in Vilnius. At the Academy of Sciences Library, Zygimantu 1 / 8, Vilnius, Lithuania
The theme of the Conference is “Traditional culture and religion”
A new council needs to be elected in 2003, making the term 4, rather than 5 years, or perhaps even shorter. In order to recruit more active members into the council, the WCER needs to be expanded. Therefore, the upcomming conference will aim at inviting new members from around the world. This would also provide for more varied presentations and more diverse points of view.
I. Update reports and introduction of new members.
II. Discussions about initiatives and projects:
a. United Nations NGO application
b. Virtual News Channel project
c. The Oaks and other publications
d. International library project
e. Other projects…
III. Re-election of the WCER administration
IV. Ratification of activities programme for 2003-2004, projects and conferences.
We invite you to prepare reports and articles to “The Oaks”. We plan to publish the next issue of “the Oaks” at an earlier date, and thus we would like you to send us these articles as soon as possible, so we may publish them for all to read. Having these articles sooner will also help us engage in more creative and more educated discussions at the conference.
The annual Romuva summer camp will take place right after the WCER conference on August 11-17. You are invited to attend this camp as well. It will take place in the Romuva village, 70 kilometers from Vilnius. You will be treated to Baltic music, ritual and dance, and an opportunity to meet common practitioners of Baltic religion. Transportation and accommodations will be provided upon request.
For the conference itself , you need only to arrive in Vilnius. As you will inform us about your time of arrival, we will take care to meet you, make reservations at hotels, and transport you to the proper locations. Some sightseeing and cultural activities will be planned.
Please inform me about your participation in the Conference
