Global Direct

November 2014

Supported by Jerome Foundation

Promoting global, participatory democracy “Global Direct” is a political philosophy driven by information technology and the failure of current political systems to respond to the complexities, crises, and speed of contemporary life. Inspired by the tradition of utopian artistic visions, and informed by extensive research, Cirio’s fifteen organograms illustrate alternative protocols, procedures and policies for actualizing a global democratic system.

On the website you will also find an invitation to “Suggest a Slogan,” video statements by prominent advocates of participatory politics, and more. The slogans and printed posters of the “Global Direct” campaign will be disseminated through social networks and in physical public spaces. “Global Direct” showcases how distributed networking technologies can be used for participatory decision-making, transparent accountability, and civil awareness.
