The 12th World Social Forum took place in Montreal on 9-14 August 2016. The Forum aimed at bringing many people, local or foreign, together to get involved in over 1000 self-managed activities organised in forms which included, according to the official WSF website , ‘the expression of experiences, debate initiatives towards another possible world with opening and closing marches, an agora of initiatives, a youth camp and a wide cultural program’.

Apart from being launched in one physical place, the 2016 Forum was open to forum activities outside Montreal and tele-participation through the Internet.

The team of Global University for Sustainability participated in the opening march and organised two activities: Global Dialogue on Sustainability and Mapping China from People’s Perspectives.

Emancipation was one important theme-sessionbecause of its emphasis on ways to deal with the current crises and people’s autonomy in making plans for a more sustainable world.

Global Social Justice has been working  on issues of sustainability. It organized two events at the WSF. Please click here.
