Web-dialogue "World Social Forum Today"

On the occasion of the Finnish Social Forum on Sunday 30th August at 1 pm UCT.

The World Social Forum has attracted internationally new interest and

looks forward to the future of the WSF.

Following people have been invited to initiate the online dialogue (in

Pierre George (FRA), Francine Mestrum (BEL), Armando de Negri (BRA), Ole
Pedersen (NOR), Vijay Pratap (IND), Ritu Priya (IND), Uddhab Pyakurel
(NEP), Teivo Teivainen (FIN) and Thomas Wallgren (FIN).

The event is co-organised by the Siemenpuu Foundation’s working group on
Ecological Democrarcy, the Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam Network and the Network
Institute for Global Democratisation.
