S1/ Hybrid event, face-to-face and online, World Social Forum Mexico May 1- 6, 2022
The World Social Forum, initiated in 2001, is an open space-process of meetings and articulations by civil society entities that oppose neoliberalism and the domination of the world by capital or any form of imperialism and, are engaged in the construction of a planetary society oriented towards a fruitful relationship between human beings and of these with the Earth.
Never before has the need for greater cooperations and articulations been more evident than it is today. We are going to strengthen the union of ideas and actions to change the world. The serious reality we face demands that commitment from everyone.
The fifteenth event of the WSF process, WSF 2022, will take place in the historic center of Mexico City, (CDMX)
We invite you.

Challenges for this WSF 2022 event… and for after
In this WSF 2022 facilitating collective, we have the challenge of getting organized, in times of pandemic, a large, horizontal and decentralized event, with hundreds of self organized dialogue activities and descriptions of self-organized action initiatives, with processes of international dialogue and articulation decisions “from below”, in various stages of evolution, mixing physical, hybrid, online interaction modalities.
This entails various challenges for facilitating groups and participating organizations
