Soon 100 WSF 2015 activities out of Tunis


Impulse WSF process where one lives and act for another possible word - prepare an activity out of Tunis before during or after 24 28 march.

Extension is a collective dynamics aiming at providing access to the right to participate in the WSF process "from where we live and act for another possible world". "extended" participation modalities have developed since 2009 : collective video-conference, meeting on enlargement o meetings on internet , WSF internet café, "local" activities, that is to say, far from the center of the WSF event.

"The WSF event Tunis 2015 has an " extended " format to allow the widest possible participation from people and organizations that wish to participate in the World Social Forum process, wherever they are on the planet. Website Http://registration.fsm2015.org allows registration of activities "outside Tunis 'and' video conferences with Tunis"

The "extension" commission is responsible for facilitating the extension dynamics for WSF2015:

1 / It provides information on extended participation modalities in WSF2015 on www.fsm2015.org and www.openfsm.net websites

2 / It accompanies, months in advance, the "extension actors" which are:

- on the one hand, people who are not coming to Tunis on 24-28 March 2015, and wish, with their organization, to set up in their city local WSF2015 activities, video-conferences with people in Tunis, WSF internet Café spots, etc ..

- on the other hand, people coming to Tunis on 24-28 March 2015, and wishing to contribute to local activities before leaving for Tunis, or to enlarge on the internet their activities in Tunis to involve their networks, or to volunteer for remote interventions in local activities during or after their stay in Tunis.

To make yourself visible from the commission, as a potential participant in the WSF extension dynamics, you can answer 3 questions on the online form here.

3 / the commission cares, in cooperation with other committees (logistics and program) about preparing the reception, direct or via internet, of actors of extension on the El Manar campus. It ensures that a quality Internet connection is accessible as widely as possible on campus for enlargement on the internet of WSF2015 program activities..

It runs a "tele-center WSF 2015": a set of rooms dedicated to host collective video conference activities, with a specific programming, and host main room WSF internet café Tunis, which includes also WSF internet café spots on the rest of the campus

4 / Within the commission, we divide volunteers tasks to inform about the extension, to support the other commissions in enlarging their meetings on internet, to accompany the actors of the extension in the preparation of their extended activities, to preparing schemes and modalities for hosting and supporting extension in el Manar campus, on March 24 to 28.

To do this, we use a collaborative workspace in www.openfsm.net, you can visit: http://openfsm.net/projects/extensionfsm2015.
