The International Alliance of Inhabitants in Caracas
is promoting two activities:
a seminar: Zero Evictions Campaign: towards global unity of social urban movements
a seminar: Toward the Urban Popular University
The workshop organized at the Bolivarian University of Venezuela, Caracas, on the third day of the VI World Social Forum for the International Alliance of Inhabitants, has allowed the work developed over the last two years on the Urban Popular University to be opened up to a large, varied audience.
The International Alliance of Inhabitants will be present in Bamako
through the presence of the International Alliance of Inhabitants of Africa, who together with DAL
(France) proposes a seminar entitled ‘Poverty and the right to housing’. Movements from Mali, Senegal, Nigeria, Zimbabwe and other African nations will participate in the seminar.
During the first day, after the inauguration and the conference “The FAL
in a new development phase: a network of resistance and alternatives for local authorities faced with neoliberal globalisation” (Yves Cabannes is amongst the rapporteurs), there will be the following work groups:
Peripheral cities (Cesare Ottolini is one of the rapporteurs)
Human Rights in the City
Decentralised Co-operation and Citizenship
A culture of peace and reforms of International Institutions
Participative Democracy: a challenge for “another world is possible”
The work of the work groups will be presented in Plenary session together with an analysis prepared by the Social Inclusion and Participative Democracy Commission of the UCLG on the Millennium Goals: the role of local authorities and communication with civil society.
