The Network offers resources for those who believe, as we do, that the future of our shared life on this planet depends on our ability to engage in productive dialogues.

We offer educational materials and programs, links to professionals who are actively engaged in this perspective and the opportunity for those who are committed productive dialogues to be able to establish fruitful working relationships.

The Network for Productive Dialogues consists of persons, theorists, professionals, groups and institutions interested in developing dialogue as a means achieving interpersonal, organizational and social transformation. 

The Network is a joint initiative of Fundación Interfas and Taos Institute, and the presidents of those organizations are the directors of the Network. The Network also has an Advisory Board that performs consulting and operative tasks.
