Glocal Web

We look at how the global relates to the local, in a globalising and urbanising world. A world of skewed development in which the human dignity and empowerment of the few rather than the many is realized. We see the overlap of the global and the local, or the web of'glocalization' intensifying in diverse places, affecting social and decision process, practices and governance.

Our Voice

Our voice is for the realization of human dignity and empowerment of everyone - women, men and children and for ecological integrity everywhere. Making the global act for the local is of concern to us.

Our Ways

We integrate diverse ways to inquire and to act. Our work extends relevant knowledge and practices, promotes learning and cooperation and enhances ethical solidarity and advocacy.
