Programme for Babels International Meeting: stage 2
(Date: 31 March 2006)
When it was proposed, the aim of the International Meeting was to discuss among Babels members and other actors involved in the Social Fora as to Babels’ role and contribution in the WSF process, as well as to how to improve our contribution to this process.
Initial proposal for the meeting: click here.
This proposal was publicized in Babels’ forum for discussion, and several activities were proposed. The first deadline to propose activities was March 1st.
Since then, several discussions have taken place and it is time that we attempt a first grouping of activity proposals or, in certain cases, to divide certain activities into separate activities.
We have finished stage 1 of the program process as outlined in the initial proposal.
Now, we must go through stage 2. This involves networking and an initial regrouping of activities.
We have to do this for several reasons:
We urge the promoters of activities to start to talk with their new co-promoters. As of now, our aim is to start sharing experiences, proposals, etc. in order to draft preliminary working documents by May 1st. After the ’brainstorming’ stage, we must start to propose coherent discussions and proposals.
Participants in these discussions are urged to contribute to this effort by using the wiki, the chat, the forum... whichever tool necessary to come up with a set of documents which will be useful for all the *other* participants of the International Meeting. A more detailed document which will help you use these tools properly will be published soon.
It is essential that clear documentation be drafted in the next 6 weeks by these groups. This will determine the way the Program workgroup will be able to actually organize the physical meeting in June in Paris so that participants can go to *other* workshops than those they worked on until then. Let us not forget that it is essential that what each activity does is explained clearly to the others, as it will determine our work in the months/years to come.
GROUPING ACTIVITIES: PROPOSAL
The programme workgroup proposes that the following activity proposals be grouped together. For the sake of clarity, we are reproducing the titles and links of the original proposals.
Note: some initial activities appear several times in the following list. This means that we suggest that they ’divide’ themselves into several activities because their initial proposal is too broad or concerns several activities.
Activity 1 – Charter, autonomy, social territory...
Activity 2 – How to mobilize and to establish networks
Activity 3 – Training and selection
Activity 4 – Written translations and lexicons
Activity 5 – Diversity of languages and experiences
Activity 6 – Alternative equipment
Activity 7 – Electronic tools
Activity 8 – Analysis of social forums
There are several proposals or ’discussion threads’ which either do not correspond to what the meeting is about, or they are too vague, or they actually correspond to what the *whole* meeting is all about. People who participated in these threads are urged to try to merge with the proposals outlined above.
