A global network of public bodies, private organizations, research institutions, and civil society entities, the Alliance works with the Danish Board of Technology on 'World Wide Views', an initiative to increase citizen consultation in topics of global governance.
Mission and Purpose
The World Wide Views Alliance involves a number of private and public entities dedicated to an increase in the use of public opinion and citizen consultation on matters of global governance such as the environment and climate change. The Alliance oversees the World Wide Views initiative which attempts to realize the group's mission through time-limited, global consultations on issues being debated or negotiated in international policy forums such as the UN.  The Alliance was also established to develop a method of simultaneous, multi-site public consultation. The method - simply called World Wide Views - was used for the first time in 2009 and twice more in 2012 and 2015.
Origins and Development
The WWV Alliance was originally established by the Danish Board of Technology in 2009 to conduct the World Wide Views Citizen Participation Project on Global Warming. Due to the success of the Project and the shared values of the partners, the Alliance continued its work on a second Citizen Participation Project (on Biodiversity) under the umbrella World Wide Views initiative. Since the first Project on Global Warming, the WWV consultation methodology has been used twice more: first on the topic of Biodiversity in 2012, and then on the topic of Climate and Energy in 2015.

Specializations, Methods and Tools
Used first during the Project on Global Warming, the Alliance has continued to use and develop the World Wide Views method of citizen consultation. The method has thus far only been used at the international level but it is suitable for national or regional purposes. The process is focused on the idea of multiple, simultaneous public consultations on a given topic.
