1)Reminder of the role of ASCOP and its ambitions

Construction of world citizenship and animation of a citizen world at several levels through the exchange of experiences.

  • Individual registration and engagement through the world citizen card.
  • Associative: The Associations accept and adhere to the charter of ASCOP


  • Disseminate globalization ideas: the people live it, we are looking for what links us and we measure the differences.
  • 3 Facets
    • Action of the organizations that communicate with each other.
    • Proper activities organized by ASCOP.
    • All of this contribution to the Peoples Congress.

ASCOP: Strength of proposals for the Peoples Congress which then takes these strong globalist ideas to validate and disseminate them.

2) Focus on what exists

  • Almost 60 organizations from twenty countries have signed the Mulhouse charter.
  • 35 on an appeal of 1984 which involved some twenty active ones, mostly African. (Appeal for global solidarity against hunger.)

Who can strengthen ASCOP?

  • We, our associations
  • Permanent Globalist Committees
  • Universal Movement for Scientific Responsibility
  • Association of our networks
  • Globalists who share our ideas or wishing to bring their experiences in this field (example: signatories within the framework of the 60th anniversary of human rights)


  • Send letters to propose to the associations working in our line to join ASCOP by evaluating its principles with the help of a membership certificate as well as the charter

3 Focus on Finances

The membership fee which was set in 2004 was 20 euros per year. However due to failure to appeal for contributions, there are few contributors (currently ten). Today, the accounts are zero, the revenue just covering expenses.

  • Appeal for contribution 2009
  • Make appeal to the foundations (example RITIMO)
