Redesign ECOSOC


Political concept for a better/stronger UN and ECOSOC – based on a cooperation between nation-states with the global civil society.
Goal of the political initiative:
A concept based on cooperation of the qualified global civil society with governments who initiate a renewal of the 1944 "Dumbarton Oaks Conference" of the victorious nations.
Suggestion of a PROCEDURE (not of content) which shall finally lead to a better balanced world – to a better functioning United Nations – especially to a stronger ECOSOC (or other global regulating body).
Task of the workshop is to make Suggestions
- which governments could be challenged to chaperon the process – without dominating the content,
- which parts of the global civil society (like science, religious leaders, business, One-world NGOs) should be asked to join the initiative,
- where in our world such a new "Dumbarton Oaks Conference" could be located,
- what eminent body of wise elders could be asked to "filter" the results – and
- in what framework the results could be made public and advertised politically.
