Regional Social Forums


Welcome to the Internet site of Polycentric World Social Forum

These days the world is more internationally connected than ever. We do business in a world market; we have connections to other governments, and an interest in other countries social going ons. The things that happen in the international social arena have a way of affecting each and every one of us more than they ever would have the generations in our past.With communication technology like fax by email, Cordless Phones , that can go anywhere and everywhere, and smart phones the effect of our actions can also be internationally felt even faster than before.

The health of the economy in one country affects the health of the economy in another. This is because the world does so much business between companies there is very literally an active and thriving world market. It used to be most business was done within a country. Another unfortunate, but realist fact is that social issues between counties have to be closely monitored and sometimes dealt with on an international level. With the weapons that exist these days (while war is never good) the potential for war that is devastating to the world is always a possibility. To help in that regard, you can look into how to become FBI or CIA careers, or do something a simple as keep up with international news and be informed. Also, advances in almost every area- medical, science, technology, etc.- makes amazing leaps and bounds now that people from all over the country have started working together and exchanging ideas. Hundreds of new jobs have been created by the craze of the Internet, people make money from advertising online, playing casino games and creating large social networ

ks such as Facebook.

Knowing we have established an international community that affects us means we must also recognize that, as with all good relationships, clear communication needs to remain open. Places like our social forum help people communicate what is going on and their thoughts on the matter. Of course there will be problems. The world is full of many different view points held by passionate people. There are many different ways of life to be considered. However, even though there are issues to be solved it is important to remember that a different world is possible. It helps spread different points of view, so we can make sure our relationship works smoothly and is the best it can be.

The forum of Bamako, a significant political event!

The forum of Bamako is of paramount importance to People in Africa who are victimized of the neo liberal system which is itself synonymous to violence, suffering, and poverty and exclusion to over one third of the global population.
