Towards shared Global Goals of peace, sustainability, and with an emphasis on human rights, we collaborate with UN agencies (UNDP; UNESCO; UNICEF etc) in program content, outreach and creating development opportunities for participants.
When it comes to system change however, the UN, gridlocked by its Nation State mandate, is unlikely to evolve to provide the full global governance solution that our modern era or that mitigating catastrophic risks, require.
In collaboration with like-minded efforts, The Global Summit with its small and flexible structure, is an interface to experiment with new ideas, tools and technologies to best re-design out-dated policy, philanthropy and economic systems.
Stepping up Summit goal #1, ‘to enable all voices to be heard in shaping the issues that matter most to them’ it supports the advancment of a global citizen super power to compliment and provide needed checks and balances to the UN Nation State bound system.
Towads this end, leveraging its mission and events eco-system, The Global Summit is dedicated to:
- serving as a trusted action research platform for civic engagement events and campaigns to inform the development of new approaches and policy systems
- providing relevant information to support the UN mission and promote systemic solutions via concrete, evidence based outcomes
- sourcing input from communities who do not have direct input into global policy making systems (other than through their governments)
- stewarding the creation of the Global Citizens Assembly Taskforce with experts in applied policy action research sharing the above vision for transparent citizen-direct democracy in service to a living planet and all life.
