Why are we not heard? On the local level in many parts of the world, citizens can use petitions, referendums and citizens' assemblies to influence political action. But so far, there is no way for citizens and civil society to influence politics on a global level.
It has been known for years that the United Nations, the organisation central to global governance, needs to become more inclusive and democratic.
In our summer webinar series “Now we will be heard” we will discuss four concrete proposals to make that a reality:
- 28 July, 17h00-18h00 CEST: A UN World Citizens’ Initiative (UNWCI)
- 11 August, 17h00-18h00 CEST : A UN Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA)
- 25 August, 17h00-18h00 CEST : A UN Civil Society Envoy (UNCSE)
- 8 September, 17h00-18h00 CEST : Global Citizens’ Assemblies
This webinar series is being organised with the financial support of GLS Treuhand.
