This page is about managing the information that comes out of the World Social Forum. The WSF is, of course, a worldwide process. Therefore, we must have a focus. Our focus on this page will be the seventh WSF Event, which takes place in Nairobi, Kenya, 20-25 January 2007.

We have prepared for this event for years already. Traces of our preparations are found on the website of the Network Institute for Global Democratization, NIGD. If you have not already subscribed to the related e-mail list, you can do so here.

As a part of the preparations, the Journal Information for Social Change will publish a special issue on Libraries and Information in a World Social Forum Context at the beginning of January.

Meat on the bones

Esther Obachi, the secretary of Kenya Library Association, has presented a structure which we will follow on this page. For the time being, a web-version of her powerpoint-slides can be browsed here.

Now, let's produce meat for Esther's bones! Mikaelbook 04:43, 4 December 2006 (EST)
