Have you heard about the World Social Forum? The Forums started in 2001, in Brazil, and now it is the largest gathering of civil society to find solutions to the problems of our time. Each World Social Foum brings together tens of thousands of participants to more than a thousand activities (workshops, conferences, artistic performances etc.) on various themes (social, solidarity economy, environment, human rights, democratization etc.). In 2016, the World Social Forum is being hosted by Montreal from August 9th to 14th!
