A Global Citizen is someone like you! People who regard humanity as their greatest religion and believe in creating ‘One World’.
The future of our humankind is dependent on those people who think and believe that they are a citizen of planet earth first and then of the country they were born in. At GCF, this is exactly what we seek to nurture
The main objective of the forum to envision the creation of ‘One World’. Defined as a worldbeyond gender, nationality, religion and boundaries!To achieve this GCF aims to advocate such legal, social and cultural practices that promote equitable development.

True to its principles of unity, the GCF launch in India was held at the oldest and biggest forum of religion in the world- the Mahakumbh at Allahabad. It was attended by religious and spiritual leaders from all faiths, including the Dalai Lama.
All of who invoked humanity to unite in the face of common international problems and find effective solutions to achieve a better quality world order.
Following this, GCF events have been organized in Singapore, Malaysia, China, London, Los Angeles and Dubai.
The events follow a set pattern. Eminent leaders are invited to put forth their opinions on international topics. The speeches are punctuated by energetic Q&A sessions that are designed to push boundaries and create opinions. Each event almost always focuses on a local law or cultural practice of the host country that may delimit societal and individual development.
