Global Conference Declaration
Towards a World Citizens Movement

Marina Urquidi ¤ 9 April 2014
Translations: English (original) .

In July 2013, 200 active citizens from around the world met in Johannesburg to start “Building a Global Citizens Movement.” The conference was organized by DEEEP/CONCORD in collaboration with CIVICUS (World Alliance for Citizens Participation) and the GCAP (Global Call to Action against Poverty). The conference released the statement “Towards a world citizens movement” and launched a platform to build the movement over time.
“What is global citizenship? We believe global citizenship means that all people have access to participate and influence in a world democracy. The essence of global citizenship is built upon the involvement of different groups within decision making. . . . We believe that global change will come about when citizens start acting themselves and that is what we will do in this journey and beyond.”
