Participation is free for everyone, we do however ask for you to register in order to help us organise the program, as well as the hospitality at our best.
The program of the meeting is open to include a wide range of proposals and formats, based on the thematic streams.
Each thematic stream provides an orientation for the discussion themes that will be debated during the International Gathering. They shall be used as reference for the organisation of the program, based on the proposals received.
Proposals may be in the form of workshops, audiovisual works, book presentations, magazine presentations and papers. For those who are part of social organisations or workers’ organizations, it is also possible to propose oral presentations.In this case, all we ask for is a simple description of the content.
Deadline for submission is the 16th of June 2017, such deadline does not apply to general registration of your participation, that we shall do our best to keep open as long as possible. For further information on deadlines and methodology, please note the section of the call on specific submission deadlines.
Building the program
The program is then built based on the proposals received, that will be organised in:
Discussion panels: Spaces of discussion on general issues to share knowledge and views, and to develop common perspectives, they are organised biased on the thematic streams, with speakers from different backgrounds specifically chosen by the organisation committee, based on the proposals received. They are central discussion tables to which everyone may participate, so they are not overlapping with any other.
Round tables on specific topics: they are organised according to the thematic streams, based on the proposals submitted. For the workers’ organisations is not necessary to present a full paper, a brief presentation of contents is sufficient.
Workshops: Working spaces to share experiences and practices, and develop common tools and strategies. Participants who would like to organise a workshop, may directly send a proposal including aims, and organisations involved. They shall be then published in order to allow any other organisation evolved to participate.
Presentation of books, journals and Videos may also be proposed and added to the calendar of activities.
The Local Committee is also organising a calendar of prior activities in that shall take place in Buenos Aires between the 23rd and the 29th of August. The full program shall soon be available.
