Global Week of Action for a World Parliament

The Berlin Contribution to the Global Week of Action will be under the motto

„Ways to a World Parliament – Digital and by Meeting in Person”

Friday, October 20nd 2017, at the Friedrichstädtische Galerie in 10963 Berlin, Stresemannstr. 27 from 07:00 pm till 09:00 pm

in a small informal meeting

the starting signal for the development of an internet tool for global debate, voting and elections will be given. By this, we intend to show that, by going digital, global democracy is a feasible goal.

We then hope to present this internet tool in working mode at the Global Week of Action 2018.

On October 20th we will, however, also propose and discuss ways to approach the goal of a World Parliament by personal encounter on local level – as we believe that both ways, I-voting and meeting in person, are necessary to bring forth the idea of a World Parliament.

-> Want to contribute tot he new tool, wherever you are?
In this case go to
Here you will find – with the already existing World Parliament Experiment – 

a tool for debate and voting which is technologically outdated but nevertheless contains interesting ideas and and functions (e.g., in the sense of Liquid Democracy). Test it as thoroughly as you please – and then give us feedback: and/or, Tell us which tool features you appreciate and what should be taken into account when developing the new tool!

-> Want to be a part of the informal meeting on October 20th in Berlin? In this case please sign in by mail: Please note that the number of participants will be limited!
