Hello,

This one just popped up on my radar:

    2nd European Congress on Global Education - Lisboa 2012
    http://www.gecongress2012.org/

There seems to be opportunities to raise both the issue of a Global 
Convention on R&D and (global) access to knowledge issues, for example 
Open Access and the http://www.righttoresearch.org initiative.

At the core of the Congress is the Council of Europe's North-South 
Centre definition of Global Education:

    - Global Education is education that opens people's eyes and minds
    to the realities of the world, and awakens them to bring about a
    world of greater justice, equity and human rights for all.
    - Global Education is understood to encompass Development Education,
    Human Rights Education, Education for Sustainability, Education for
    Peace and Conflict Prevention and Intercultural Education; being the
    global dimensions of Education for Citizenship.

Thanks for hints whether this is already under way.
