The online future of the WSF? Organizing social forums before, during and after the pandemicActivity Date: Friday, January 29, 2021 - 20:00 UTCDuration: 120 minBrief Description:
How has the World Social Forum process responded to the challenges of COVID-19? In a somewhat paradoxical way, the forced digitalization has given a dynamic boost to the process. Its International Council has encountered new energies. Various meetings with social movements and with thematic, national and regional social forums have been organized. What have we learned? What does this "digital leap" mean for the future of the forum? What aspects of online organizing will be maintained when then pandemic is gone?
The conversation will be initiated by Rita Freire (São Paulo), Carminda Mac Lorin (Montreal), Giuseppe Caruso (London), Pierre George (Paris), Teivo Teivainen (Helsinki) and Laëtitia Vu (Montreal).Language(s) of the Activity: EnglishProponent Organizations:How to get in touch and participate in activity?:Contact (Email):Platform used for the transmission:Topics: NetworkingThematic space(s) of the activity: Future of the WSFCross-cutting space(s) of the activity: Pandemic, Future of the Forum
