The World Social Forum is an “open space for meeting to: intensify reflection, carry out a democratic debate of ideas, elaborate proposals, establish a free exchange of experiences and articulate effective actions by the entities and movements of civil society, oppose neoliberalism and the domination of the world by capital or any form of imperialism and, also, committed to the construction of a planetary society oriented towards a fruitful relationship between human beings and the Earth.”

Join in on this 9-day virtual event, which will consist of the following activities:

The virtual march consists of a 24-hour live webcast highlighting the struggles, visions and experiences of movements from all over the world. In our diversity throughout the world in our rural and urban communities we walk hand in hand with an anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-colonial and anti-patriarchal vision.

The announcements of self-organized activities   by the participating organizations and the major thematic conferences (organized by the Facilitator Group of the Virtual WSF) that are on the event dates, arranged by days and hours, constitute the ” event program ” that can be filtered by  themes. 

The Assemblies are co-prepared by at least 5 organizations already registered in the WSF, there may be more. They are self-managed activities like the others scheduled between January 23 and 29. They are privileged occasions to reach articulated political expression among many organizations.

The Agora is a time to share, as a fair or popular market, the actions (initiatives) to be carried out during 2021: struggles, campaigns, declarations, agendas, processes, organization of events, etc., to build a Calendar of Action Glocal, heading to the WSF in person in Mexico

About the World Social Forum: January 25-29, 2001, 20,000 participants in the first World Social Forum event, organized in the city of Porto Alegre in southern Brazil. The event is in counterpoint to the annual World Economic Forum started in 1971 where 2000 wealthy economic and political actors of neoliberalism celebrate “happy globalization.” This first WSF event is seen as an occasion of reencounter by many people who persisted to think, in front of the narratives that “it is the end of history” and “there is no alternative” to neoliberalism, that “another world was possible.” It proposes panels to listen to celebrities from the alterworldists, and also offers the possibility of preparing self-organized activities.
