History

June 1992, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), at United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), deriving from EarthAction International. Registered in accordance with UK law, USA law and Chilean law.

Aims

Emphasize issues of global survival in national elections; make government leaders more accountable to world public opinion for their decisions on global issues; create pressure for fundamental changes in the international system; empower ordinary voters and global citizens' groups to work on global change. Working through existing organizations, create a global citizens' action network of citizen groups working on environment, development, peace and human rights issues so as to: link citizens and groups in global action; alert concerned members of parliament. As a global network of voters, persuade politicians to work to protect the Earth through: protection of the global environment; combating hunger and poverty; ending militarization and the production of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons; strengthening the capacity of the United Nations to keep the peace, defend human rights and safeguard the atmosphere and oceans.

Activities

Partner organizations invite members to subscribe to their own lobbying network, provide the Network with ideas for action alerts and send EarthAction alerts to their networks. World Future Commissions each focus on one issue of global concern and hold global public hearings and conduct other research to develop specific action-oriented policy proposals which are submitted to the World Future Council. Once Council has reviewed and endorsed policy proposals, the Network carries out global campaigns to inform the world about the Council's recommendations and presses governments, corporations and others to fully implement the recommendations.
