Since today’s biggest challenges – from climate to inequality to democratic governance – require actions on a global scale, human beings are often instructed on the need to be global citizens. But very few of us spend our days traveling across the globe or even around our own countries. We make our lives in specific neighborhoods within municipalities. So being a global citizen starts with democratic participation in our home communities and cities.
As we gather in Rome for the 2018 Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy, people from cities around the world will do more than just discuss these questions. We will work to define the particular characteristics of what makes a city global and democratic—and then enshrine those definitions in a charter for the world’s “democracy cities.” This work will then travel out from the Eternal City, offering an invitation to our communities and cities to sign onto this charter – and build the links necessary to make each other more democratic and more impactful.
