Purpose: On the educational level, this paper aims to show a practical case of dialogic web-based learning. It has provided a consensus during a web-based negotiation game between four different parties on poverty and inequality. On a multicultural level, this paper seeks to offer diverse cultures of argumentation on global poverty. Design/methodology/approach: The methodology is a web-based and real life negotiation game, namely "Surfing Global Change" which includes structured online review processes on literature-based research and reflection. Findings: The paper provides the consensus of four different parties on global development and poverty, and a new system of scaling development based on democratic decisions through a round table for all countries from the global north and the global south. Research limitations/implications: The presented dialog and consensus-finding process concentrates on poverty and inequality from the point of view of the G-8, NGOs, the global rich and the global poor. Originality/value: This research, based on literature, is formed through a dialog and consensus finding between four different parties (G-8, NGOs, the rich and the poor). (Contains 1 table and 8 figures.)
