Global democracy is not utopia. GloCo pledged support on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Did you know that everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives? It’s a human right. See article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which had its 75th anniversary in December last year.


Yet, what about governance of the global challenges? Shouldn’t you participate in those decision processes as well? GloCo thinks that you should. So, we submitted our pledge to implement democratic processes on the global level as part of the anniversary activities along. 286 pledges were made by 150 Member States, NGOs, businesses and UN entities (see Human Rights 75 Pledges | OHCHR). GloCo is one of the about 90 civil society organizations who delivered a pledge.

We pledge to establish a global democracy for the global problems. This global democracy shall complement democratic mechanisms that exist on the community, local, regional, and national levels by a global level that addresses the global problems. Global problems are those that affect individuals irrespective of borders, e.g. climate change, tax evasion, digital technologies and artificial intelligence. All humans, i.e. about 8 billion today, shall be global citizens, and have a voice and a vote to identify global problems, suggest and debate solutions, deliberate and vote on the proposals – free from any discrimination and irrespective of origin, gender and beliefs. You can read our full pledge here:


Our target is to establish this global democracy by Jun 25, 2045. This will be the centenary of the unanimous approval of the Charter of the United Nations at the San Francisco Conference in 1945, which - despite its shortcomings - is the best global governance organization that we have today. Let’s work together to be at a better place in about 20 years. Please spread the word and, if you want to support us, visit our website and contact us.
