How can you do that?

You can do that online, using Facebook and Skype. 
The conference consists of an ongoing series of online Panel Discussions with empathy and compassion experts from all fields and walks of life. The panels take place using Skype group video conferencing and are recorded and placed on Youtube for viewing at any time
They could add Virtual Worlds.  Maybe they will.  After all, a year-long conference leaves time for innovation  in vivo.

Innovation in vivo
Of course. In the midst of life we are in change. An online conference is
  • As close as your desk.
  • As cheap as your bandwidth.
  • As visible as Facebook.
  • As public as you make it.
  • As often as you want it. 
It could become the world's oldest permanent floating conference.  This goes on my OTW list (One To Watch)

NEW: Sub Conference on:
How to Nurture, Foster and Teach Empathy in the Education System?
A section of the conference will be specifically about how to develop a comprehensive empathy curriculum for the education system. We invite educators to propose panels on this topic.-
We're brainstorming possible organizations that would like to be involved and sponsor the event. We would like to partner with any organization that has an interest in building a culture of empathy and compassion.
