BERLIN, Germany (September 9, 2006), 119 distinguished speakers from around the world met as part of "The Table of Free Voices" question-answer symposium.

Held at the famous Bebelplatz Square, leading scientists, authors, Nobel Prize laureates and artists sat circled around a huge round table answering questions to produce positive global change. Each participant, chosen for their ongoing public or creative contribution, answered 100 of humanity's most relevant questions (selected by the event's organizers out of hundreds of thousands of the public's entries collected over that last 3 years).

"The Table of Free Voices" celebrated a new, experimental approach to encountering social and global problems, bringing together a critical mass of global representatives to answer humanity's questions.
