These are some thoughts on a new KIND of party (not another new party):  https://www.radicalecologicaldemocracy.org/finding-pathways-to-a-better-future/

Written in 2017, they need a major update as we are now in a quintuple crisis [https://www.interfacejournal.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Foran.pdf] with fantastic new energy in the global climate justice movement of movements, but the proposal remains the same…

The new tools are fantastic and the WSF needs to study them:  Sociocracy [https://sociocracy30.org/guide/], Viral Open Space, and so many others, as Rita  has said, including new forms of pedagogy like Ecoversities [https://ecoversities.org/], and others.  Here is one I am involved with:  https://www.nxterra.orfaleacenter.ucsb.edu/

It seems to me that the WSF needs to reflect on its own process to move forward, and this call has demonstrated.

Thanks to Jai and to all who are here together – my profound gratitude.
