World Social Forum 2009

The World Social Forum (WSF) is an open space – plural, diverse, non-governmental and non-partisan – that stimulates decentralized debate, reflection, proposals, experiences and alliance building among movements and organizations engaged in concrete actions towards a more democratic and fair world. The World Social Forum shows the capacity of the civil society movement when organized in new ways of political action, based on diversity and co-responsibility. The success of the first edition resulted in the formation of the International Council, and its first meeting a Charter of Principles was approved in order to guarantee the World Social Forum as a permanent space and process to build alternatives to neoliberalism. In the present time, there are local, regional and thematic Foruns all over the World following this Charter of Principle
