(CGS) for a unique event to explore challenges, opportunities, and strategies for advocating for foundational principles of democratic world governance. The summit will inform concrete action to achieve the vision of tomorrow’s governed world and combat such critical global challenges as violations of international law and human rights, environmental degradation, and escalating armament.
Statement of Purpose
For more than 75 years, Citizens for Global Solutions (CGS) has dedicated itself to the grand vision of a united planet, led by champions who represent some of the greatest minds of the last century. Despite this rich history, it is clear that the present moment demands new global solutions. The world has never been more interconnected: challenges of global health, environmental degradation, and illegal aggression do not respect borders. World federation provides the necessary framework for effective international cooperation but the question remains of the steps and pathway to this ultimate goal.
As CGS embarks on a new chapter, seeking innovative and ambitious solutions to current threats, we convene an “Exploratory Summit” to inform advocacy by our Action Network. At this summit, we invite subject matter experts and leading activists dedicated to our core causes and foundational values to share perspective on the contemporary means and methods for advocacy. The purpose of the summit is to help current and future CGS Action Network members identify priorities and strategies for our advocacy efforts. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussion with thought leaders and join CGS’s action efforts following the summit.
Topics will include:
- Supporting International Institutions through Informed Reform
- Promoting Treaty-Based International Law
- Advancing Climate Justice and Disarmament as Components of World Federation
- Mobilizing the Next Generation through Youth Outreach and Intergenerational Approaches
