Global Community Citizenship

Home Up Contents

Certified Corporate Global Community Citizenship (CCGCC)

Citizenship of the Global Community, which will exist by virtue of a Treaty between nation governments and the Charter of the Global Community, is conferred on everyone who is a citizen of a Member State. The Global Community citizenship is additional to, and does not replace, national citizenship. Election by universal suffrage when conducted by all Member States, will give the Global Community Parliament full legitimacy. By voting in its elections the citizens of the Global Community enhance its status and influence.

The Global Community citizenship gives citizens the right of free movement and residence in the territory of the Member States, the right to vote and stand for election in the Global Community and local elections, the right to diplomatic protection in third countries, as well as:

- the right to petition the Global Community Parliament;

- the right to bring complaints before the Global Community Ombudsman;

- the right to address any of the Global Community institutions or bodies in one of the official languages and to receive an answer in the same language.

Members of the Global Community Parliament (GCPs) will be elected by direct universal suffrage at five-year intervals. They will be elected under a system of proportional representation. Elections are held either on a regional basis, or under a mixed system.

A common core of democratic rules applies everywhere:

1. the right to vote at 18,
2. equality of men and women, and
3. the principle of the secret ballot.

Transparency

Members of the GCP must declare in a public register their professional activities and any other paid work or office held. They must also declare their financial interests and other sources of income.


All peoples on Earth have been wondering what will it take to create and obtain a global community citizenship that is based on fundamental principles and values of the Global Community. Now is time to enact your dream! It is time because humanity has no time to waste as we have done in the past. It is time to be what we are meant to become to save us and all life along with us. It is time to be citizens of the Earth. It is time to gather our forces and to stand for our global values, the only humane values that can save humanity and life on the planet from extinction.

You may be eligible to become a citizen of the Global Community.

We all belong to this greater whole, the Earth, the only known place in the universe we can call our home.

Negotiations with the United Nations are under way concerning worldwide acceptance of the Criteria of the Global Community Citizenship. It is expected that the U.N. accept worldwide the Global Community Citizenship and the Certified Corporate Global Community Citizenship (CCGCC). A global community citizen could travel the world with the global community VISA and work in nations where the VISA is obtained.

The Global Community would conduct the proper investigation concerning the security aspects of the global community citizen requesting the VISA and also be responsible for the legitimacy of the application for the VISA. A VISA could have several different applications depending of the request:

a) work permit
b) short visit
c) volunteer work

1. Acceptance of the Statement of rights and responsibilities of a person, 'a global community' and 'the Global Community'.

We need to take this stand for the survival of our species.

2. Acceptance of the concept of 'a global community'. The concept of 'a global community' is part of the Glass Bubble concept of a global community. The concept was first researched and developed by the Global Community.

We have already said that 'a global community' is not about a piece of land you acquired by force or otherwise. A typical global community may be what a group of people, together, wants it to be. It can be a group of people with the same values. It can be a group of people with the same cultural background, or the same religious background. Or they may have totally different backgrounds and beliefs. One could think of a typical global community of a million people that does not have to be bounded by a geographical or political border. It can be a million people living in many different locations all over the world. The Global Community is thus more fluid and dynamic. The Global Community is this great, wide, wonderful world made of all these diverse global communities. We need to let go the archaic ways of seeing a community as the street where we live and contained by a border. The people making a global community may be living in many different locations on the planet. It can be a village, or two villages together where people have decided to unite as one global community. The two villages may be found in different parts of the world. It can be a town, a city, or a nation. It can be two or more nations together.

We can no longer perceive ourselves as a People who could survive alone and a People who does not need anyone else. We belong and depend to this much larger group, that of the Global Community. The 21st Century will see limitless links and symbiotical relationships with and within the Global Community. A global symbiotical relationship between two or more nations, or between two or more global communities, can have trade as the major aspect of the relationship or it can have as many other aspects as agreed by the people involved. The fundamental criteria is that a relationship is created for the good of all groups participating in the relationship and for the good of humanity, all life on Earth. The relationship allows a global equitable and peaceful development and a more stable and inclusive global economy.

The emphasis of a global symbiotical relationship is not so much on how much money a nation should have or how high a GDP should be although money can be made a part of the relationship. We all know developed countries live off developing countries so the emphasis has no need to stress out the profit a rich nation is making off a poor nation. The emphasis of the relationship should give more importance to the other aspects such as quality of life, protection of the environment and of the global life-support systems, the entrenchment of the Scale of Human and Earth Rights and the Charter of Earth Government into our ways of life, justice, peace, cultural and spiritual freedom, security, and many other important aspects as described in the global ministries (health, agriculture, energy, trade, resources, etc.) .

3. Acceptance of the Scale of Human and Earth Rights. To determine rights requires an understanding of needs and reponsibilities and their importance. The Scale of Human and Earth Rights and the Charter of the Global Community were researched and developed by the Global Community to guide us in continuing this process. The Scale shows social values in order of importance and so will help us understand the rights and responsibilities of global communities.

4. Acceptance of the Charter of the Global Community. The Charter of the Global Community is a declaration of interdependence and responsibility and an urgent call to build a global symbiotical relationship between nations for sustainable development. It is a commitment to Life and its evolution to bring humanity to God.The Global Community has focused people aspirations toward a unique goal: humanity survival now and in the future along with all Life on Earth. The " Belief, Values, Principles and Aspirations of the Global Community" of the Charter are closely interrelated. Together they provide a conception of a world sustainable development and set forth fundamental guidelines for achieving it; they were drawn from international law, science, philosophy, religion, and they were discussed as research papers during the global dialogues.

5. Acceptance of your birth right of electing a democratic government to manage Earth. The political system of an individual country does not have to be a democracy. Political rights of a country belong to that country alone. Democracy is not to be enforced by anyone and to anyone or to any global community. Every global community can and should choose the political system of their choice with the understanding of the importance of such a right on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights. On the other hand, representatives to the Global Community must be elected democratically in every part of the world. An individual country may have any political system at home but the government of that country will have to ensure (and allow verification by Earth Government) that representatives to Earth Government have been elected democratically. This way, every person in the world can claim the birth right of electing a democratic government to manage Earth: the rights to vote and elect representatives to form Earth Government. 

6. Acceptance of the Earth Court of Justice as the highest Court on Earth. The Global Community is promoting the settling of disputes between nations through the process of the Earth Court of Justice. Justice for all is what we want. Justice withour borders! The Earth Court of Justice will hear cases involving crimes related to the global ministries. It will have the power to rule on cases involving crimes related to each one of the ministries.

Prosecuting criminals on the basis of universal jurisdiction regardless of a territorial or nationality nexus required a solid commitment of political will from national governments and the Global Community. Once in effect, the Earth Court of Justice will become the principal judicial organ of the Global Community. The Court will have a dual role: to settle in accordance with international law the legal disputes submitted to it by national governments, local communities, and in some special cases by corporations, non-government-organizations and citizens, and to give advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by duly authorized organs and agencies.

The Court will be composed of judges elected by the Elected Representatives Council and Earth Security Council. It may not include more than one judge of any nationality. The Members of the Court do not represent their governments but are independent magistrates. The judges must possess the qualifications required in their respective countries for appointment to the highest judicial offices, or by jurists of recognized competence in international law. The composition of the Court has also to reflect the main forms of civilization and the principal legal systems of the world.

The Earth Court of Justice will hear cases involving:

*     nation states
*     national political and military leaders accountable for violations of international humanitarian law
*     'core' crimes of genocide
*     crimes against humanity and human rights
*     war crimes
*     crimes with significant impacts perpetuated against the life-support system of the planet (for instance wars and use of weapons of widespread destruction are listed under this category)
*     crimes related to the relentless misuse of the Earth Resources
*     environmental crimes
*     social crimes as the Court may see apply
*     crimes stemming from the global ministries

The Earth Court of Justice will also rule on global problems and concerns such as the creation of a new nation in the world, and disputing territories or land between nations.

The procedure followed by the Court is defined in its Statute. The Court decides in accordance with:

*     the Scale of Human and Earth Rights,
*     belief, values, principles and aspirations of the Global Community,
*     international treaties and conventions in force,
*     international custom,
*     the general principles of law,
*     as subsidiary means, judicial decisions and the teachings of the most highly qualified publicists,
*     the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities of Global Community citizens, and
*     the criteria of a Global Community citizen.

The Statute of the Earth Court of Justice will be established later.

The Earth Court of Justice established by the Charter of the Global Community as the principal organ of the Global Community shall be constituted and shall function in accordance with the provisions of the Statute.

The Global Community welcomes you!
