Good idea.  It is not really incompatible with my proposal.

I think what was lacking in the previous efforts is *community building*.
What we need is more or less stable groups, with defined boundaries,
that have the power to self-govern (and thus reduce trolls and
flames). If the goal is global - than these groups need
representatives from many parties (optimally from all existing pirate
parties). Building them will require some effort.

My idea is to use the consensus process when building one or more of
these groups.

Because the community building requires much effort - than when we
build such a group it should not have too narrow goal.

Plus I listed some goals for such a group to tackle:

* organizing coordinated actions (mostly protests, but also actions
like welcoming Snowden etc.)

* working on common program core (the European common core program is
very useful for small parties and it should be copied worldwide)

* making common declarations

* maybe working on PPI statutes
