We  have reached our 8th issue and Second Anniversary as an unique and global e-platform, the Light Millennium & Isik Binyili in English & Turkish with your participation and support since January 2000.

We dedicated the Second Anniversary Special Issue to such distinguished artists and authors as:

The Light Millennium e-platform has been visited by 55 000 thousand people in 86 countries including an average daily login of 350 people last week of March. This is a great achievement to compare to last year. During our "First Anniversary" issue publiation date, in Februay 2001, the platform was visited by 6000 people. The difference is very obvious...

Our aim to reach several hundred-thousands of people with each new issue and in most countries globally.

With each new issue, we have gained new representatives in the US, Europe as well as in Turkey. Still, we need some technical supports and a constant seed crew in order to improve this platform much better, activate other projects soon, avoid all delays, and structure and produce this project much more effectively and powerfully... For this purpose, we have worked very hard to continue and improve this platform with the global participation and expansion. Still, we need to accomplish much more some of which are announced in the PROJECTS and the SPONSORS pages.

The Light Millennium's standing point:

The Light Millennium & Isik Binyili e-magazine, Turkish & Greek Synergy web site
(http://www.turkishgreeksynergy.net) and Light Millennium TV series (QPTV channel #34 &35) are under the umbrella of The Light Millennium, Inc., which is a NOT-FOR-PROFIT organization based in New York since July 17, 2001.

we have been in the process of finalizing our "Tax-Exempt" application for submission to the IRS. This is going to be our second major step in terms of establishing our not-for-profit organization.

The Light Millennium's publishing policy does not discriminate against any age group; written or visual product submissions ranging from any age group, creed, race, ethnic background, whether one is an amateur writer or a professional one, are encouraged.  The Light Millennium's magazine encompasses many unique characteristics involving people from all walks of life;  professionals, publishing, literature, poetry, artists and others.

We also encourage people from different religions and people who speak different languages to join us on this diverse platform promoting peace and understanding among peoples.  In each issue of our magazine, there will be two main subjects we will deal with "Freedom" and  "Global Understanding." 

Our aim is a humanistic one bringing different communities and cultures to the forefront of our Internet platform.  We lay our foundation on friendship, peace and love amongst peoples' of the world allowing them to bring together their ideas and thoughts without any political propaganda or pro-war sentiments. 

We hope to have on this platform people from all over the world contributing as much as they can for a better understanding of the world and human-kindness. In short, we have to create our works and expand our imagination in order to realize them. If you still don't have one, then why don't you start now to develop one!

Therefore, we are waiting for 'your reative output'
and ‘expectations’ from the world in order to share and expand those ideas globally...

Since our first issue, we have  been also expanding globally with our exciting "volunteer team" as our new representatives in the US, from Europe as well as in Turkey. Listed below is our present team:

Our banner has changed greatly with the 2nd Anniversary issue. Turkish artist Ayhan M. Duman has desinged our new banner. It is much more complete and unites the concept of the Light Millennium. He also joined  our 'volunteer team' as on-line "Art Director". We are proud of our "Volunteer Team". Thus, we thank all members of our team and to Nusret Ozgul from Brussell who constantly gives us great courage and supports our project. Thank you to all...

Submissions are presently in English and Turkish and we welcome submissions in different languages.  Thus we are seeking editors from different languages in order to represent those languages in our platform. We invite and urge everyone to send his or her work to us as well as joining our 'volunteer editorial team'.

All participants and readers of the Light Millennium, as "YOU are the soul of this global platform",
we invite you to continue to be a part of this platform, as well as to help us increase the diversity and size of our circle globally.


Be in peace, love and light,
