All citizen-run groups and individuals belonging to social movements are invited to attend World Social Forums to raise important issues, discuss ideas, formulate proposals, build their networks and learn from each other’s experiences.
The first World Social Forum was held in 2001 in Brazil. Since then, gatherings have taken place almost every year. Documentation stemming from these meetings as well as from other workshops and conferences organized under the auspices of the organization is being shared online. Several topics of interest to anyone wishing to foster social, economic and political change are covered. To see what is available, please click here.
Participants come from all over the world to focus on practical alternatives that foster a world built on social and environmental justice, social and supportive economic principles, participative democracy and the preservation of equality and dignity for all.
From August 9th to 14th 2016, Montreal, Quebec, Canada is hosting the first edition of the Forum to be held in the northern hemisphere. For more on this event, click here.
