About

Forward is a global, progressive, political initiative in the making. 

Despite global challenges existing - from the threat of climate change to the erosion of democracy worldwide - there is no coherent political force working to solve them within elected bodies. This must change.

We announced the start of this groundbreaking project on the one-year anniversary of the pandemic, March 11th, 2021, ahead of what should be the most important global election: the one to become the United Nations Secretary-General. That’s because we intend to challenge this undemocratic selection process! Concretely, this means that we are running progressive primaries to find a people-backed candidate to run for Secretary-General this year. We will then campaign for the win, and make this untransparent and undemocratic process more open, fair, and welcoming of the people of the world. Check it out here.

Colombe Cahen-Salvador and Andrea Venzon founded Forward. They have in the past founded several transnational initiatives and mobilized tens of thousands of people, including NOW!, the grassroots global movement pushing for humanity to work as One to solve the biggest challenges of our times. While still leading this nongovernmental organization, they believe that a political force is needed to complement its work. Hence, Forward!

Forward has just been incorporated as a legal entity in the UK.  

Forward is volunteer-based and volunteer-led, with no financing to date.
