ONLINE: A voice for global citizens: Roadmap towards a World Citizens’ Initiative
  Cologne, DE Other events


The coronavirus pandemic, climate change and many other challenges underline the fact that all people on this planet are connected to each other. As world citizens we are all in the same boat but we have no say at the United Nations (UN) as the most important arena of global politics. This is why Democracy International, Democracy Without Borders and Civicus have launched the We the Peoples campaign, calling for a World Citizens' Initiative.

Dr. James Organ and Dr. Ben Murphy of the University of Liverpool have analysed the feasibility and legal framework for a UN World Citizens' Initiative. In this webinar, they will lay out how a World Citizens' Initiative can be implemented.

There is a possibility that we surpass the capacity of our Zoom room. If you are not able to join us on Zoom, it is also possible to follow the webinar live on our Youtube channel, where you can also ask your questions: https://www.youtube.com/c/DemocracyNetwork.
