GlobalSquare is an initiative of a group of participants in the newest wave of movement and uprising around the world. We want to mobilize and organize towards, around and beyond the World Social Forum, a global gathering of social movements and civil society organisations, to be held in Tunis from 26-30 March 2013. More details about our intiative you can find here.
We are working on different activities in Tunis and we invite everyone to join and the process is always open for other activities. There are many options to get involved in our process and find supporters for your proposals:
In december 2012 we started a mailinglist for discussion and collaboration. You can subscribe to this list on this page (fill your email in the form on the right). The archive of the list is also publicly accessible on the same page.
Since the end of november 2012 we hold online voice chat meetings on a regular basis. Here you can find all the information you need to join these meeting. Here you find the most recent invitation to the next meeting that you can spread in your networks.
At this point we are starting to create different working groups to take care of several practical issues, such as maintaining this website, financial support, etc. In case you want to start your own project group to communicate about your proposals, you can start a group. It’s easy, only thing you have to do is register and start working together. Check the existing groups here.
The succes of the online meetings, the mailinglist, this website and all our activities in and around the World Social Forum in Tunis depends on the availability of translations. To identify our translation needs we invite you to fill in your languages in this spreadsheet.
For the translation of our website we will try an experimental format in which every visitor is able to contribute to the translations. You are just a few clicks away from start working on it! Learn more here.
We actively build contacts with: 1) Babels, an international network of volunteer interpreters and translators whose main objective is to cover the interpreting needs of the Social Forums; 2) Translator Brigades, a group of interpreters supporting projects in Occupy and Indignados movements.
Soon we will invite everyone who supports our initiative to consider making a donation. We will always first seek for free solutions, and when there is no other option than use money we will provide full transparency on the way it is spend.
