Upcoming webinar series and launch of the Global Democracy Initiative

15.3.2021

It was always GloCo´s mission to work on the implementation of a global democracy. As we believe that this endeavour can only be reached by bringing different players in this field together, we have initiated the Global Democracy Initiative.

GloCo is proud to announce that we now developed a Letter of Intent to articulate the aims of the Global Democracy Initiative with other member organisations. We have also designed the first website for the GDI.

Most excitingly, we are pleased to announce a series of webinars in the lead up to the official launch of the initiative. Each webinar engages a particular pertinent question, and presents an opportunity to get to know each member organisation better as well as get a feel for our collective rapport. Please see below the dates of the upcoming events, also included on the flyer.
