The Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy is organised by the City of Rome in cooperation with a consortium of organisations. The international secretariat is hosted by Democracy International.
The Global Forum on Modern Direct Democracy is free and open to attend, all you have to do is register, using the form on this website.
The Forum will largely take place in the Palazzo Senatorio, on the Piazza del Campidoglio:
Because we want to keep participation free to all, the Global Forum Consortium does not provide accommodation and there is no official Global Forum hotel, we therefore urge participants to make their own arrangements as soon as possible.
Travelling to Rome:
The City of Rome has two major airports: Leonardo da Vinci Airport at Fiumicino and Ciampino Airport. Both Airports offer bus transfers to the Stazione Termini, the Main Station in Rome, from where public transport is available to everywhere in the city. Please note that in order to keep participation free, the Global Forum Consortium does not offer travel grants.
Lunch will be offered to participants free of charge on the full days of the conference.
