WorldSocialForum-Discuss -- Discussion list about the WSF and social movement in general


About WorldSocialForum-Discuss

This list (WSFDiscuss) was originally created in 2005 for discussions about the World Social Forum as an idea, and with the hope that over time the list would become an open space for discussion for all those interested in the WSF. It succeeded in becoming this, and moved beyond it : The discussion on the list now (2015) is not only about the Forum as such but about lessons from politics and movement as a whole, including the WSF.
The special feature of WSFDiscuss is that it comes along with all the features provided on the OpenSpaceForum webspace ( These include an archive of all the messages exchanged on the list, a library of reference material that we are building on matters related to open space and cultures of politics, and links to other related sites; and it is also a space where you can freely chat, blog, create your own wiki pages and upload your own material, and comment on material already up there. In short, an open space in cyberspace.
