Mobilizing for global democracy

Global Week of Action for a World Parliament

About the week

The Global Week of Action (GWA) is an annual event celebrated in October around United Nations Day on the 24th. It was held for the first time in 2013. During this week independent events and actions are held worldwide to promote the establishment of a democratic world parliament

World Parliament Now!

The slogan of the GWA is “World Parliament Now!” This underlines the urgent necessity of a leap forward: “As global crises increase, people across the world, from diverse backgrounds and cultures, express their discontent with existing forms of political representation, which leave them voiceless in global decision-making.”
