Word social forum ( WSF) is a permanent process, linking organisations and people,
who think "another world is possible" and intend to build it in a variety of ways
WSF process takes the form of a succession of events with an open space methodology
where organizations meet and dialogue during self organized "activities"
Basically wsf cafe is a place for informal encounters between people in Ottawa and people abroad through skype, on a variety of topics. encounters are not by appointment but based on mutual availability, in ottawa, and around the word, within a group of preregistered participants
