The World Social Forum (WSF) 2016, scheduled to be held in Montreal, Canada from 9th to 14th of August 2016 on the theme “Another World is Needed: Together it is possible”. The goal of the WSF2016 is to gather tens of thousands of people from groups in civil society, organisations and social movements who believe in the construction of a better world. and want to build a sustainable and inclusive world.
This is to inform you that, the OIKOTREE (joint initiative of WCC, CWM and WCRC) movement is committed to campaigning against the injustices around the globe though various ecumenical pilgrimages for the past over a decade. Now, Oikotree is happy in announcing its participation in the World Social Forum 2016 to raise three key issues in the struggle for building together another world that is needed and possible. These are the questions of “Land”, “A New Epistemology about Life” and “People’s Assembly of the World”.
For your kind perusal, herewith, we attach the details of the Oikotree Workshops. Some of you may also be present in Montreal. If you are there at WSF, please join the workshops that Oikotree offers to the WSF. If not, please uphold the WSF and the participating organizations in your prayers to renew their commitments to establish and realize the world that is the need of these hours of ours.
We also request you to share this information with all your colleagues and friends who would be participating in WSF for their reference and Solidarity.
