WORLD SOCIAL FORUM
On August 18, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. will The World Social Forum (WSF) is very proud of this 12th edition of the WSF, the first to be held in a Northern country. The event counted 35,000 participants, including 15,000 who were present at the opening march, where 125 countries were represented. Let’s remember that at the first World Social Forum held in Porto Alegre in Brazil in 2001, 20,00 people took part in the event. Therefore, considering such numbers, the organizers are more than satisfied as to the results of a first World Social Forum held in a Northern country.
In total, 1,300 self-managed activities took place, as well as 200 cultural activities and 6 parallel forums. FEM International is very proud to be participating in such an event.
