The WSF in Montreal in August 2016
The International Council of the WSF enthusiastically welcomed the idea of holding a World Social Forum (WSF) in Quebec for 2016. The goal of the WSF 2016 is to gather tens of thousands of people from groups in civil society, organizations and social movements who want to build a sustainable and inclusive world, where every person and every people has its place and can make its voice heard.
