Create a web site where all NGOs and activist groups can present their cause in the form of a proposed act/decree/law

NGOs worldwide and others write up acts/laws that address threatening worldwide problems.
These laws are drafted in a standard format for consistence and easy of comprehension.
The host web site categorizes these acts and indexes them and displays them
Web site becomes host for proposed legislative law available for any party or politician, anywhere on the planet.
Web site asks others to support enactment of proposed laws through petitions etc.
Mirrored web sites could offer translations.
Host site promotes a single worldwide mission and single mission statement (ideas please)
We will never resolve problems so long as we remain fragmented into small numbers without a unified voice

      May 22 2013: Hi Adesh - To prevent overcrowding (as you put it) perhaps we could suggest the preparation of one act/decree for each of the categories.
      Wikipedia has a list of about 25 that we could use to get started http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_environmental_issues
      As for the other problems they will always be with us - Remember “Big change looks impossible when you start, and inevitable when you finish.” - Bob Hunter
