Enlarging your activity in WSF2015 on skype / internet , before and during it is being held in or out of Tunis


"Tunis 2015 will have an" extended "format to allow the widest possible number of people and organizations that wish to participate in the World Social Forum process to  participate, wherever they are on the planet"  

Dear organizers of activities in WSF2015, 

You have  announced 1200 activities as of  late January (  plus more  activities to come, "outside Tunis", that it is possible to announce in wsf website  until mid-March)

The WSF 2015 Extension Commission suggests  that you  consider the possibility of enlarging your activity on skype / internet ", whether in Tunis or out of Tunis 

You can implement this simply (see directions below), and thus allow concretely people, with a skype account, who will be out of the place where your activity will be held, and are interested in it, to get in touch in one click  with you coming  in a skype room associated with your activity

So  BEFORE the WSF event in Tunis  24 28 March, concrete exchanges via text chat and audio / video meetings can be held at your convenience between you (the organizers of that activity), remote  WSF participants that came in the room, and volunteers of the  extension Commission that support  extension dynamics in your region:

The dynamics of these exchanges then will help you to choose the precise form of the enlagement on internet at the time of the activity itself, depending on your technical and logistical capacity, internet connectivity where you are  (in tunis, internet network is currently being strenghtened in the university)  ,  the number of people interested,  the support you can get in your organisation and from us  etc

- The technical form: simple skype,  or skype + streaming video, or other system
- The type of interaction: what is during the activity, the  participation time allocated for remote participants, and the "Face to face"participants

Here are the first activities that the organizers have decided to enlarge on internet  

this is the start of the WSF 2015 "enlarged" program

On this page you can access, by clicking on the links provided for each activity, the respective  skype rooms associated with these  enlarged activities.

Some activities are before"Tunis"  24 28 march, others are  "in Tunis" or during "Tunis", others after "Tunis"

If you decide to enlarge, you can start now and not wait end of agglutination because the skype room will resist to the steps of agglutination in February

Here is the step by step  to create the skype room and edit the title and text of your activity on the WSF website to demonstrate this enlargement on the internet

If this interests you, please follow these steps
