VIDEO 1h40mn 

Around the world, movements and organizations are working, against the odds, to build a better democracy from the bottom up. They’re working in neighbourhoods, territories, urban peripheries and rural areas to set up new economic models, feminize politics and put care at the centre of the debate, and to protect the commons. They are the foundation of any cultural, political and economic transformation that seeks to be sustainable. In this panel we’ll discuss how municipalist and other grassroots movements work, their unique characteristics as compared to other strategies, and what relationship they should seek with state and transnational projects.

wsfextended act355 fearlesscities final plenary en  

18:00 - 20:00  public panel debate: between neoliberalism and the far right: wtf?!

We’re living in times of crisis, times of breakdown. Inequalities are on the rise thanks to an economic system designed by and for the 1%. Citizens are questioning the ability of traditional parties and state institutions to respond to the demand for more and better democracy. Unfortunately, in many countries it’s the authoritarian right – the Trumps, Erdogans and Le Pens – that is best taking advantage of this desire for change, putting human rights, especially those of women and migrants, at risk. We need brave, transformative ideas that can offer an alternative to the politics of fear and to unchecked speculation. In this panel we’ll debate what these ideas might be.

Vandana Shiva, Philosopher and Activist
