On 19 July 2007, Avaaz.org co-hosted a meeting with David Miliband, the UK Foreign Secretary, at Chatham House in London - here are the highlights. Miliband delivered his first speech, outlining “A New Diplomacy”, and agreed to take questions and comments from Avaaz members around the world. He also accepted a “book of global public opinion”, with thousands of pieces of advice, warning or encouragement from Avaaz members around the world, and agreed to listen to our campaigns in future.
This opening is just a beginning, but it speaks volumes about how global public opinion is becoming the new superpower, and about how leaders like Miliband are engaging with it.
