Go ! Proposals for Building a New World-governance Architecture - 31 August 2009 - by Equipe du FnGM / FnWG team
Although there have been a few attempts at building a new world governance, the latter has remained largely embryonic. It is nonetheless possible, in the vast open space of world governance, to move forward in great strides, even with limited means, precisely because there is plenty of space. Advancing proposals is a risky, but indispensable enterprise. The Proposal Papers that have so far been contributed to the Forum for a new World Governance are there as a way of daring to consider the (...)

Go ! Diálogos da rua (Street Dialogues) - 12 January 2006 - by Isis de Palma
It will not be through the Internet that we will recover direct democracy, the Greek “agora” that has been forgotten in the archive under papers stacked up by the techno-magicians of modern times.

In the street is where we can recover everyone’s voices, self-confidence, and trust in one another: the foundation of a responsible society, for (...)

Go ! Global Citizens’ Report - 27 September 2005 - by Marina Urquidi
A very ambitious citizens project is cooking. The UN is currently talking about reform and it is easy to see that it’s not going to be much more than business-as-usual while wars continue and poverty progresses.

A number of organizations and movements are planning to open a process where EVERY CITIZEN AROUND THE WORLD, (...)
