Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The EU and UN as currently constituted are part of the problem, not the solution IMHO.

Nothing top down is going to work, I suspect.

"Infra-nationalism" maybe: networked and definitely post - Nation State.

"Organisations" are not needed: frameworks within which we may "self-organise" are what is now possible, and lead to the possibility of a State which is not distinct from its citizens.

If you're thinking in the very long term - maybe. It's an optimistic outlook, but certainly possible. However, I think supra-nationalism will arrive first.
