In person meeting  August 10 - 12  in Thailand - next step in APSF process

We propose that we should keep up the momentum generated by the APSF in February 2022, by holding an  in-person meeting in August 2022  in Thailand to explore how to take the process further. The meeting will include participants from different countries in the region and will discuss the situation in the region and responses to it.

 

A tentative agenda for the meeting could include:

1.     Reports of the situation in major areas of conflict- Ukraine, and hot spots in Asia

2.     Reports of important struggles, campaigns, in the region

3.     Discussion: What kind of solidarities are needed and how this can be organized: sub-regional, regional, global.

4.     Future steps in Asia Pacific solidarity and the social forum process in the region including possibility of organising a regional or global event. 

5.     Asia Pacific participation and visibility in the International Council of the social forum.

Invitation to the meeting ( venue is near Bangkok and the airport is Suvarnabhoom)

As per WSF principle 7,   facilitating group of  APSF is trying to make mutually visible the decisons taken by the participating organizations in their activities .  Decisions and actions implied in every day social and political life of the contexts organizations are in are called INITiATIVES OF ACTION  which can be better described in the WSF platform 

 

A public  ACTION  on a given day  is  usually contextualized within a plan of action associated to goal and strategy for the initiative. The fact of using a common format accomodating the vast diversity of forms of action, allows to have a CALENDAR  of actions-date ,allowing mutual visibility which is a condition for intercomunication and possible coalition building  

Actions are usually not isolated an inserted in an  action plan and a context. The action plan might have been formulated in an initiative in WSF join forum platform

Here you can copy paste a link of an initiative is join wsforum platfom if it exists
