Initiatives based in solidary economies’ principles and practices, interested in participating in the World Social Forum may subscribe themselves to the selective process to occupy spaces shared to the commercialization of products.
One of the Forum’s main goals since its creation is the strengthening of another economy that already happens in communities and productive networks, proposing solidary relations between popular business and their products’ consumers. Therefore, solidary and popular economy has political and organizing priority in the FSM 2018, with space for exposition, exchange, offer of services or food, craftwork and productions of the organizations and its partnerships.
Subscriptions must be made until 02/20/2018, exclusively through the WSF website. After that, the Workgroup of Solidary Economy from the Facilitator Group of the WSF 2018 will set up a selection process of the initiatives based in criteria that take into account the diversity of segments, continents, countries and Brazilian states, from various social movements participating in the Forum’s organization process and the variety of products and services. This definition will also take into consideration the Brazilian legal demands, from states and cities as well as available spaces.
Organizations will be informed from the result of their subscription by the workgroup and the selected ones will have to pay a fee of R$ 100,00 or the equivalent value in their countries’ currency.
