Hello , welcome to Agora list !

Thank you for accepting our invitation, and for finding interesting the initiative proposed  by our working group to develop exchanges between social forum event organizers in the context of 2012

The goal of this Agora list is simple : allow autonomous  interactions / cooperations between event organizers, whereby “past” event organizers can stay abreast of wsf process dynamics worldwide once their event is passed, and can engage In supporting “upcoming” event organizers, in various ways, from where they are

In order to post on the list , SIMPLY  answer to this message :

You can make a quick self introduction, mention your event, and give some indications:

-what are your intentions regarding possible contribution or participation in some of the 2012 upcoming events(*)

 - what are your interest , needs, challenges, ressources  on some of suggested themes/areas of possible cooperation on the occasion of those events (**)

( as messages on Agora list will stay on an internet page(***), kindly give only data for PUBLIC  usage, avoiding personal data).

Also if you want to make a new input or change in  the calendar (*) , please tell  us at fsm2012.apoyo en gmail.com

You will also find practical indications(****)  , that you can explore progressively, and questions are welcome
