The concept was invented by the self-declared World Citizen Garry Davis in 1949, as a logical extension of the idea of individuals declaring themselves world citizens, and promoted by Robert Sarrazac, a former leader of the French Resistance who created the Human Front of World Citizens in 1945. Globalisation is mainly referred to the economic globalisation and mundialization to a democratic globalization. The word mundialisation or mundialization is the English version of the French word "mondialisation", which today refers in French to what is referred to in English as "globalisation". The original use of "mondialisation" was to refer to the act of a city or a local authority declaring itself a "world citizen" city, by voting a charter stating its awareness of global problems and its sense of shared responsibility. Surprisingly enough, the first city to be officially mundialised was the small French city of Cahors (only 20,000 in 2006), the capital city of the "Departement" of the Lot in central France, on 20 July 1949.
