Welcome to the GLOBE International and World Summit of Legislators new Website.
There is a growing realisation that national legislation and scrutiny, and therefore the role of legislators, are the critical elements of any successful strategy to set the world on a path to sustainable development.Recent votes in the Mexican Congress and South Korean National Assembly and efforts by China show clearly that national parliaments are at the heart of driving the response to climate change and more broadly giving the green economy real meaning.
Supporting legislators at the national level has been at the heart of GLOBE's work for many years and in a matter of weeks the 1st World Summit of Legislators will be launched in Rio with the support of the United Nations, the Government of Brazil and the Mayor of Rio. The new website and newsletter and the GLOBE Debate Legislators Blog will all serve to support the work of legislators at this critical moment in our global development.
You will find more information about GLOBE's activities, our national chapters, policy work and events as well as direct contributions to the policy debates from legislators across GLOBE's network. I hope you enjoy reading the website, blog and newsletter. Please use the comments facility on the blog to let us have your feedback.
