GlobalNet21 started as 21st Century Network in April 2007 to discuss some of the great issues of the 21st century and then follow this up with further debate and action. It is about enlarging the Public Square where debate takes place using social networks to bring new audiences of people into that debate.
We hold events several times a month to create and expand engagement in the public square between citizens as well as corporations, government and NGOs where there is a common concern for the sustainability of both our planet and the people on it and to use social networking to enhance democratic discussion. We continue to do this with online discussion, regular well attended public meetings and online meetings (webinars) that involve a global audience.
The group is very friendly and people often get together after our meetups to talk further and decide on further action.
Although joining the site is free, this coming year, the group is charging an annual membership fee of £10 per person for meeting attendance. This single fee includes attendance for the vast majority of our meetups and webinars through the coming year, and will soon provide access to our other activities. Paid up members will also be allowed to bring one guest to each meeting.
We also have a group membership of £35 per annum and this will allow any group to nominate 6 people to attend any of our events through the coming year. This is useful for voluntary organisations, colleges, schools or informal groups of those who would like to get together for a group membership .
Please note - we have never refused membership to anyone who cannot pay. All they have to do is let us know they are unable to pay the fee and we will reduce it or even waive it altogether.
Joining our network and being involved in online discussions and forums is free to anyone who wishes to join.
Look at our activities and join us and please feel free to contact us with ideas of your own.
