globe-logo.png B/ TWO VISIONS OF THE FORUM IN DIALOGUE ON DAY 25

B / In this IC discussion on the 25th I perceived two views of the forum

A vision that can be described as “REPOLITICIZING" interested in creating a WSF political narrative and in the“ construction of a global subject ”. In this vision, the methodology is considered to come after the strategy that comes after defining a forum objective (to build a global subject?) and that the letter of principles is of secondary importance, there is even a clear difference between “respecting the letter of principles” at a minimum, in the event, and “agreeing with it and considering it to build the process as provided in the preamble of the letter -

A vision that can be described as "POLITICO-METHODOLOGAL" seeking continuity and improvement of the methodology of the WSF process as an open space politically located by the letter of principles - whose "function" is to offer a stimulating environment for popular education and self-organized articulations with landings in initiatives (fights campaign projects) and each group of entities promoting an initiative with its objectives and narrative and action plan can seek to articulate with others -

The Caritas network is aligned with this second vision

>> create quality dialogue conditions between these visions: in the generic WSF framework there is space for this

 

globe-logo.pngC/  DECISION ON WSF MEXICO on DAY 26

C / Day 26 the discussion is around the decision to validate the FSM2021 proposal of the facilitating collective Mexico that has been consolidating since March 2019 - and to create three iIV working groups (which manifests the IC's co-responsibility with the Mexican facilitating collective) - these commissions will be documented here:

- particularly in the conduct of a convening process through a meeting in April May in Mexico A consensus formulation will be circulated in the IC to be evaluated and improved (this was done on February 16 in the group "articulation" @ 29 - there are intentions to propose modifications, and there is a first sequence of modifications here http://openfsm.net/projects/cifsm2021/cifsm2021-articulacion-insumo2

>> time is running ..... there had been talk of organizing an international meeting in mexico in April / May

 

globe-logo.png D/ IDENTIFYING THE ISSUE  OF THE MEANING/CONTENT OF WSF FRAMEWORK 

D / Right after the meeting, it appears that what “organizing an WSF event process” implies for the facilitating collective of this WSF has not been made explicit in the discussion.

In a “political-methodological” understanding of the process, and based on the experience of the WSF process, this implies a generic WSF framework that involves

  • A /: build the process based on the letter of principles,
  • B / decide by consensus in the facilitation community, and
  • C / work in co-responsibility with the IC .

>> It seems better to make it EXPLICIT  in the consensus formulation


globe-logo.pngE/  FINALIZE A WRITTEN FORMULATION OF THE PORTO ALEGRE CONSENSUS: TO BE DONE

E / The consensus of the Porto Alegre meeting remains to be formulated

Initial circulation http://openfsm.net/projects/cifsm2021/cifsm2021-articulacion-insumo2/#1

So far there have been few exchanges and the Porto Alegre consensus formulation is not validated -

see first inputs for reformulations http://openfsm.net/projects/cifsm2021/cifsm2021-articulacion-insumo2/#2

I - Based on the report of the Mexican organizations on the work they have done so far to prepare for the next WSF, the following consensus was formed at the meeting:

1. that the next WSF takes place in Mexico; This character of the WSF implies, for the entities that make up the Mexican facilitating collective, a triple commitment recognizing the following "WSF framework" A / building the WSF 2021 process with an explicit reference to the Charter of principles, as provided in the letter in its preamble, B / make decisions by consensus / consent, and C / in co-responsibility with the international Council, which initiates several commissions to contribute to the WSF2021 process (see info at http://openfsm.net/projects/cifsm2021 )

 

@29 MAURI DRAFT TEXT FOR CONSENSUS FORMULATION CIRCULATED IC (also published in the articulation commission that was created on January 26th in POA - @29B  start of chats for IC COMMISSIONS FOR WSF 2021 - @30 FIRST REACTIONs ON THE PROPOSED FORMULATION OF IC CONSENSUS -  @34 TOWARDS A DIALOGUE ON FORMULATION OF CONSENSUS  IN PORTO ALEGRE

>> the entire IC can intervene in the discussion on consensus formulation it is not reserved to articulation comission

 

globe-logo.png F/ WHOLE OR MINIMALIST FRAMEWORK?  AND THEN NO LONGER A WSF? - MAKE EXPLICIT WHAT IS IMPLICIT

F / Alert: FSM2021 an FSM in a minimalist FSM framework ? Not a WSF anymore


Less than ten days after the meeting in Porto Alegre - A self-organized activity is organized with people who intend to influence the WSF 2021 process and the facilitating committee, some explicitly inviting them to leave the WSF framework, others minimizing their relevance 

Dialogue is welcome, and there is already among the CFMEX thematic spaces a space "use and future of the WSF" or but what is problematic is the will to influence the Mexican facilitating committee and change the generic WSF framework

There are different reactions to what is said in this workshop "WSF present and future from the IC which is a showcase of the" re-politicizing "vision ( see index of statements in the workshop here : http://openfsm.net/projects/dibco1/dibco1-2020-discusionfsm-comment7-input20-1en

But so far there is no clear debate in the IC on the explicitness of the “WSF framework” that comes with the decision to entrust WSF2021 to Mexican facilitating committee.

Could it be that the organization of an WSF has been entrusted without clarification of what is the framework of the facilitating collective? Maybe because it was considered evidence

What is the content of the FSM framework that from the IC is considered a reference for FSM 2021

WSF framework "
A / build the WSF 2021 process with an explicit reference to the Charter of Principles, as provided in the Charter in its preamble,
B / make decisions by consensus / consent, and
C / co-responsibility with the International Council

globe-logo.png I/ AN INVITATION TO A WELCOME ENCOUNTER SESSION IN A CFMEX THEMATIC SPACE (which is not a WSF2021 axis space)

I / CFMEX thematic spaces

Also a concrete example of the dynamics of inviting a host of an online thematic space started in Mexico to practice the forum process and self-organization of participants before the event - These spaces will not be those of the event, they serve to launch the practice participation in a process

@23 INVITATION TO WELCOME ENCOUNTER  CFMEX 2021  THEMATIC SPACE KNOWLEDGE & EDUCATION-

http://openfsm.net/projects/pfsm20autodoc/ex018-autodocumentacion-doc1

>> This innovative practice of active participation before the event is part of the focus on the process - and not just the event.

 

globe-logo.png J/ A FIRST MEETING OF THE MEXICAN COLLECTIVE AFTER CI MEETING

J / First meeting of the facilitating collective after Porto Alegre - the meeting agenda is not respected, the discussion is confusing and the collective's fsm framework is not discussed (item 2.e of the agenda ° http: // openfsm .net / projects / pfsm20 / pfsm20-reunion-15february20

The meeting ends with the decision to organize an assembly whose name "expansion-conformation" reflects the coexistence of two visions

The most delicate point is that it is not explicit how decisions will be made in an assembly that carries many expectations for the vision of re-foundation , and a charged agenda, I mix people who have a year of experience and toras who will be a cousin not participating there is serenity

@27 MEXICO FACILITATING COLLECTIVE MEETING FEBRUARY 15TH - @27B TRANSCRIPTION VIDEO INDEX OF FEBRUARY 15TH CF MEX MEETING IN MEXICO - @28 SHORT POA REPORT FOR CFMEX  -

>>

globe-logo.png K/  A TITLE OF ASSEMBLY AND CALL MEXICO REFLECTING TWO VISIONS "EXPANSION / CONFORMATION"

K / An assembly without serenity on March 14 -


see the call - with an ambitious program: http://openfsm.net/projects/pfsm20/pfsm20-reunion-14marzo20-convocatoria-en

  • for the refounding vision the INFO LINKS documents that are added at the end of the call http://openfsm.net/projects/pfsm20/pfsm20-reunion-14marzo20-convocatoria-en are only proposals are not 2019 decisions that are still valid
  • For the enlargement vision, this conformation speech would be more audible if the principle of decisions by consensus / consent would be affirmed in advance in the assembly , which will allow those who contributed in 2019 to have the serenity to explain what was done because when, how
  • the index of the conversations in the group's chat bears witness to what was discussed - http://openfsm.net/projects/pfsm20/pfsm20-reunion-14mar2020-insumo-preparacion4 - this is largely because the generic "WSF framework" It is not assumed by the refounding vision

A bigger problem is that, from the refounding vision, it has not been affirmed until now that the principle that decisions in this assembly and in the Mexican community would be by consensus, which is part of the generic WSF framework (understanding that consensus is also consent and is not unanimous),

Affirming the principle of decision-making by consensus in this assembly would give a serenity to this assembly , where people who already participated in the process in 2019 and others who did not are mixed, and would allow serene cooperation between the expansion and confirmation aspects.

@33 SEND THE CALL TO THE CFMEX ASSEMBLY March 14 (prepared in the Mexican facilitatIing collective with many discussions) - @33B preparation of the call  for March 14th assembly 

@35 MARCH

A letter from Oscar from March 1st http://openfsm.net/projects/wsfic_fsmci/poa20-input2.4 shows that there is intention during this enlargement / conformation assembly to promote an agenda of changes to the fsm framework and dedicate time and this will produce more confusion
