if anyone wants to attend the World Social Forum ONLINE in 2021.  Scheduled for the last week of Jan (23-31).  Surely will be a huge, diverse, heated, messy gathering.  If yr into that kinda thing, it should prove interesting ;)  I havent yet looked at the schedule, but if its like past social forums, you can be sure that someone will cover just about every topic you could possibly want (but most likely all 10 of the ones youd like to attend are scheduled at the exact same time ;)  

Please find details on self-organizing and/or joining events at the links below.


Over the last week of January 2021, The World Social Forum will meet as a virtual event

Organizations and social movements around the world are invited to build together the next edition of the World Social Forum and to participate in its activities that will take place in the last week of January 2021.

All participants expressed their enthusiasm for the event, considering the gravity and urgency of the challenges of the current situation and the need to articulate global and territorial campaigns and actions to face them.

In addition to strengthening the dissemination of the next WSF around the world, several of the participants decided to join the organization of their Facilitating Group, which met on November 4 , Wednesday

Your organization, movement or world network is also invited to this  co-construction : to be part of this  Facilitating Group , to be included in its working groups, to build self-managed activities that contribute to efforts to articulate and prepare actions.
