ABOUT INITIATIVES  (Announcement of action, statements) 

Initiatives are a public statement or description of an action plan ( horizon 18 months) , preferably with up to 3 public action dates,  that some  organizations participants in APSF or WSF space and process, assume publicly together, as its promoter group.

Initiatives / announcements , public declarations, statements, action plan descriptions can be about struggles, campaigns,  common agenda , innovative practices  etc 

There can be hundreds of initiatives active at the time of WSF2024 event 

 

Initiatives are aggregated in a directory of initiatives in WSF platform . There is a diversity of ways to contribute to transformative action for anoher possible world.  Initiatives  described   can be  presented  as struggles ,   campaigns,   common agenda , innovative practices... 

An initiative page also describes how to get in contact with its promoter group,  and how to support  the  initiative/announcement, and possibly  being included in its promoters group, or supporter group.

Public action dates announced in each  initiative are aggregated in an Calendar of actions from WSF participants  ( with  a 18 month visibility)

Each initiative is given  an interactive  digital meetig  room, where interested participants can meet with  its promoter group, at dates and hours  that the group indicates . This is aggregated into an Agora of futures / Square for actions 

 

Agora/Square format  may serve for

-holding a space of intercommunications about initiatives/announcements  during an event  ( such as WSF2024) ,  or for

- organizing a final moment of an event , where participants  can project themselves  in the future, visiting  the booths/table  of initiatives/announcements of their choice, for making contact with the promoter group,  expressing interest for support and participation in the public actions announced by those initiative promoter groups.
