Christmas is one of the most consumerist periods of the year. To combat it we want to fill Twitter with transforming messages on Wednesday 18th of December. We want you to join us in a Twitter Action, where you can write a tweet to explain why you join the WSFTE. Your message must be accompanied by the hashtag #IJoinWSFTE and the link to Goteo: https://www.goteo.org/project/unete-al-fsmet.
The world is literally burning because of the ecological, economic and social crisis caused by a predatory capitalism, and a neoliberal system generating inequalities, concentrating wealth in 1% of the world's population at the detriment of the impoverishment of the 99 % remaining.
It is impossible to plan solutions to the climatic emergency of sustainability without including economic justice and without respect for all living beings on the planet. The challenges we face and consequently the solutions are intrinsically linked.
Faced with the environmental and civilizatory crisis generated by a globalized capitalist system greedy for resources, social and ecological transition initiatives are multiplying all over the world. Transformative economies are urgent and central part of this movement of renewal, rejecting the doctrine of market-driven economic model growth and financiarization, and proposing concrete solutions.
In June 2020, in Barcelona, will be held the World Social Forum of Transformative Economies (WSFTE). A focal point for groups and individuals from all over the world, WSFTE aims to be for all actors involved in economic transformation, both locally and internationally.
