Citizens for Global Solutions works with several international organizations and coalitions to pursue our common goals by sharing information, cosponsoring programs and campaigns, and pursuing other means of outreach.
Social change begins with an informed public. CGS offers programs for young adults and the general public that explore existing global governance structures and consider alternatives to improve the well-being of humanity. Our programming aims to foster world citizenship to inform, inspire, and empower individuals to take action on the local, state, national, and international levels.
CGS Educational Fund is a Member Organization of the World Federalist Movement–Institute for Global Policy based in Washington, DC, and in the Hague, Netherlands, and partners with other like-minded organizations and coalitions.
World Federalist Movement-Institute for Global Policy (WFM-IGP)
WFM-IGP is the premier international organization pursuing the aim of democratic world federation. It seeks to create a world in which all people have peaceful, dignified, and prosperous lives under the rule of law, and works to promote global governance to address inequality, violent conflict, mass atrocities, climate change, and corruption. CGS is the only WFM-IGP member organization in the United States.
World Service Authority
The World Service Authority, founded by world citizen activist Garry Davis in 1953, maintains a registry of World Citizens that numbers more than one million. It issues the World Passport, the World Identity Card, and other documents for those electing to register as world citizens. The World Service Authority’s international headquarters is in the same suite of offices as CGS, and World Service Authority President David Gallup serves on the CGS Education Fund Board of Directors.
Young World Federalists
Founded in 2019, Young World Federalists (ywf) believes that the current system of competitive sovereign countries fails to tackle the global challenges that impact us all. The organization advocates a new form of global governance, one in which people cooperate to secure their common interest through a democratic world federation. CGS Education Fund Board Chair Donna Park is an official advisor to the organization, and Young World Federalists President, Eston McKeague, serves on the CGS Board.
Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP)
The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) is a network of more than 170 organizations working in 181 countries to prevent and reduce violent conflict and build sustainable peace. The alliance cultivates a network to strengthen and advance the peacebuilding field, enabling peacebuilding organizations to achieve greater impact — tackling issues too large for any one organization to address alone.
Coalition for the UN We Need
The Coalition for the UN We Need began as the UN2020 initiative, dedicated to using the 75th anniversary of the United Nations in 2020 as an opportunity to take stock and strengthen the UN system in partnership with civil society, governments, and the UN in support of a people-centered multilateralism. We believe that strengthening the UN system means improving multilateral relations and structures for global problem-solving.
Democracy Without Borders
Democracy Without Borders advocates an integrated approach to democracy promotion that spans across all levels, from the local to the global and includes the dimensions of representation and participation. In particular, Democracy Without Borders advocates the creation of a UN Parliamentary Assembly and a UN World Citizens’ Initiative. CGS supports the work of Democracy Without Borders in the United States.

Created in late 2001 in response to the 9/11 attacks, it organizes annual conferences, publishes papers and a magazine, and issues awards for peace-builders. PJSA is dedicated to bringing together academics, educators, and activists to explore alternatives to violence and share visions and strategies for peacebuilding, social justice, and social change.
