What we're about

Recreating Our Futures

GlobalNet21 is a leading forum in the UK for discussing the major issues in the 21st Century. We share a common concern for the sustainability of both our planet and the people on it. With almost 20,000 network members in the UK and abroad, we are making the debate, and democracy, more accessible by enlarging the Public Square and using social networks.

As well as a network of individuals we have also set up a collaborative network of organisations to exchange good practice and transfer knowledge so that we can learn from each other. This network is cross boundary and includes local authorities, housing associations, universities, community groups and social enterprises. Our aim is through dialogue to celebrate diversity and develop community self-resilience and sustainability at a time of unprecedented social and environmental change.

Addressing The Climate Change Emergency

Conway Hall

Join us at this meeting in Conway Hall where we discuss the most crucial issue of our times - climate change and how or if we can address it. In September there were massive world wide protests over climate change as school children left school and often with their parents protested that their Governments are not doing enough to tackle the most serious problem facing us today. At this meeting we will have four speakers that will address how we can tackle climate change or whether we have left it too late. * Can we address climate change by individual action such as flying less ore a change of diet * Or can we tackle change climate by the introduction of new and clean technologies * Or do we need to tackle the economic system based on growth and profit *Or and finally is it now too late and have we gone past the tipping point of no return There will be plenty of time for discussion and debate where we can add our views as well as ask important questions. You will need to sign in on the Conway Hall ticketing site at https://conwayhall.org.uk/event/addressing-the-climate-change-emergency/

Tackling The Drug Wars - Meeting In House of Lords

Join us in this meeting in the House of Lords hosted by Baron Brian Paddick where we talk with one another about the drug war and the escalation of violence. We will have several speakers at the meeting together with those who have been affected by the growing drug culture. Here we will be looking at all the different aspects of Violence in the drug war, whether it be knife crime, the violence that occurs when drug deals 'go wrong,' and to violence against sex workers. And also the violence to police and by them as well. How can this violence be contained and does it require fundamental change in our drug laws. In the so-called war on drugs, there are no laws or guidelines to govern how producers, traders and users behave , or are treated. In the light of increased violence AND drug-related deaths in UK Cities, it is time to focus on the gathering violence in the drug wars. This meeting is a collaboration between the John Mordaunt Trust and GlobalNet21 and Andria E Mordaunt will chair this meeting.
