The founding members of the Global Democracy Initiative are:
“Rather than pursuing our synergistic missions independently, all member-organisations of the GDI will work together to achieve the goal we all share — a Global Democracy, by and for all the world’s citizens.”
Parties interested in the idea of the GDI met for the first steering meeting in November 2020 and every month since then, working steadily and collectively to plan our formal launch on 29 May 2021. We have developed a Concept Document and Letter of Intent that succinctly articulates the aims of the GDI, and in preparation for this grand event, we successfully organized a well-attended series of webinars (all are available on Youtube).
All members committed to our shared goals contained in the collaboratively designed Letter of Intent by signing this letter live on camera. Together, we are committed to advancing our vision of achieving a Global Democracy, by and for all the world’s citizens.
The launch was preceded by a lively discussion during the third webinar where we as member organisations discussed how we envision contributing to the GDI. The webinar discussion fleshed out broader issues to address as well as more operational discussions around working groups. In particular, the discussion focused on addressing solution finding to global problems, ways to ensure effective implementation across the globe, and the promotion, communication and identity of the Global Democracy Initiative.
