Global Contract Foundation / Stiftung Weltvertrag, Hamburg, Germany
The "Global Contract Foundation" (German: "Stiftung Weltvertrag") deals with the question of global governance, sustainability and equity. We, the founders of the organization, believe that one of the greatest challenges in the 21st century will be to sign a global contract and to establish a global governance system that includes all nations, cultures and religious believes on this earth and that considers the aspects of sustainability to the highest possible degree. A key issue will be the function and reform of global economic institutions and their interaction with other political institutions, national governments and non-governmental organizations. Poverty and social polarization must be reduced, peace efforts and environmental protection must be increased.
