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

    Jun 6 2013: This is not at all what I have in mind. Have a look at stopstopstop.org where I try to make my case,
    If we first acknowledge that to make progress that legislative acts/laws must be implemented then look at the process needed to achieve that goal.
    We must propose what we as society wants done. We need to then prepare in writing what we want done as a legislative act. We must present the proposals to the public worldwide for input and amendments. We must then promote the proposals and get the public to stand behind such proposals in numbers that leave no doubt as to our objectives.
    I have a draft list of a couple of hundred things that need to be addressed - I didn't see any of them on the site you pointed out
