The World Social Forum and the World Forum on Science and Democracy will be two opportunities for the commoners to interact with other
civic and social movements.
A list of discussion is now open for volunteers at : https://bienscommuns.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/dakar
Discussing the Commons in the World Forum on Science and Democracy (WFSD)
The World Forum on Science and
Democracy (WFSD) will be held on February the 4th and 5th. Its
objective is twofold :
Two frames are proposed by the WFSD : plenary sessions and self organized workshops. We would like to propose a set of workshops and a plenary session based in the two following issues :
Perhaps the result of such workshops could be a note written with participants, not at all a declaration, but a proposal of shared agenda of work for the period from now to Rio + 20.
We will be pleased to organize this with all the organizations that will be in Dakar and will be volonteer to work with a such approach or
at least that agree to discuss it and to participate in the elaboration
of a shared program.
Discussing the Commons in the The World Social Forum
The World Social Forum (on February the 7th and 11th) is a place to try to built a large political debate
and discussion. A such process aims at to take in the table of the
discussion political questions linked with commons, to move towards a
politicization of the issue of the commons, and a shared strategy by
activists and social movements. The articulation of such questions
could allow us to elaborate a global vision of the place and the role
of the commons in the project of social and political transformation
with social movements.
Some questions suggested to make the proposal concrete :
Other existing initiatives in relation with the Commons at Dakar could be linked in order to be able to agglutinate the proposals of activities in the World Social Forum.
A list of discussion to prepare the work on The Commons in Dakar.
A list has been created for bringing the discussion on the commons to
Dakar in February 2011 at the World social Forum and at the World Forum
Science and Democracy. The address of the list is : firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone can be registred at https://bienscommuns.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/dakar
This space is wide open to all women and men who wish to exchange their ideas and experiences of the commons for social and political change.
The discussion list is moderated for non-registered and non moderated for registrants. The archives are accessible to registered people. We
do not want that languages will be an obstacle to participate, but we
are not able to provide a systematic translation of the discussions. So
we recommend using preferably English, French or Spanish in the list.
This list is hosted by VECAM and moderated by Valerie Peugeot, Herve Le
Crosnier, Alain Ambrosi and Frederic Sultan. You can contact them by
sending an e-mail to email@example.com
This proposal was made with the input from Rosa Acevedo, Alain Ambrosi, Genevieve Azam, Michel Bauwens, David Bollier, Nicola Bullard,
Beatriz Busaniche, Silke Helfrich, Wojtek Kalinowski, Gaelle
Krikorian, Hervé Le Crosnier, Heike Loeschmann, Olivier Petitjean,
Valerie Peugeot, Simon Emmanuel Roux, Miguel Said Vieira, Frédéric
Sultan. The most of them have subscribed to the discussion list.
