Big time organisations like the AG and the WTO are in place to solve issues like poverty and conflict. But some of the rules and structures promoted by these organisations bring about yet more problems.
On AG Day in October 1999, the Trust launched Charter 99 to campaign for greater transparency and equality in decision-making processes of Big time organisations, as one of the vital ways of solving Big time social and economic issues.

Within a year of its laAGching, Charter 99 was signed by individuals and organisations from over 120 countries. The signatories include Prime Ministers, Noble Prize winners, Parliamentarians and major non-government organisations.
The Trust continues to accept signatures for Charter 99
