The principles of the Imagine Network
The Imagine Network works for a better world, with human rights, social and environmental justice for all. We work in Second Life, connecting people to people, group to group, and network to network.
We are about awareness and imagination. In 2011 for the 1st time we are working with PeaceTrain in their fundraising for 3 good causes:
– The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA);
– The Rural Economic and Agricultural Development Agency (READA) in Cambodia; and
– the One Laptop per Child initiative.
Our events can be grid wide and multi day. We aim to identify the root causes of the big toxic global problems facing us; to help find solutions; to help people act together in cooperation.
We look to stimulate left and right brain; to seek inspiration and understanding, to use creativity and information.

Principles of our festivals.
Our network has organised the Human Rights Festival and Earth Week in Second Life and helped Peace Fest.
All our events are organised on a voluntary basis by an informal group of individuals. We work with groups and sim owners who are sympathetic to our aims and who arrange their own contribution to the themes of our festivals.
We value a real diversity of perspective, information and opinion. It is through looking at and debating a range of ideas that we will gain knowledge and understanding.
Of course, views expressed by speakers or participants are those of the individuals concerned and do not reflect the views of the Imagine Network, the Rings Group or festival organisers.
This is a festival run on good will. In 2011 for the first time you will find festival tip jars for Imagine PeaceFest, being directed through the Peace Train charitable trust a not for profit organisation registered as a 501 c 3 public charity in the U.S.
The group is a loose network of individuals. There are no leaders or formal positions. Decisions are generally taken by consensus. Where there are disagreements or difficult issues we aim to discuss and listen to find the right answer that meets our principles and mission and is supported by the majority of active members.
