Citizens for Global Solutions, founded in 1947, is dedicated to our vision of a peaceful, free, just and sustainable world community.
The mission of the CGS Education Fund is to educate and advocate for a democratic federation of nations with enforceable world law to abolish war and global violence in the resolution of disputes, protect universal human rights and freedoms, and restore and sustain our global environment.
In 2022 CGS will be 75 years old. We were founded in 1947 as the United World Federalists. In 1969 we changed our name to the World Federalist Association (WFA). WFA published this 50th Anniversary Historical Survey in 1957.
In 2003 the World Federalist Association merged with the Campaign for UN Reform to create Citizens for Global Solutions. WFA then became Citizens for Global Solutions Education Fund and the Campaign for UN Reform became Citizens for Global Solutions Action Network. The legal name of Citizens for Global Solutions Education Fund continues to be the World Federalist Association.
