In this sense, the February 24th was opened, until 15th of April, the web site where people can present activities.

For the moment, most of the proposals that have been presented are from the social solidarity economy, but there are also from another sectors such as knowledge, education, agroecology or alternative communication.

Five of them will be held in French, three in English, one in Catalan, one in Spanish and two in English and Spanish. However, the idea is to present proposals with a wide variety of languages to show an inclusive WSFTE.

In the case of the type of proposals, there are from documentary presentations, photography exhibitions, seminars, workshops and even a correfoc and a castell (human castle), two traditional activities of Catalonia adapted for the occasion. The capitalism will be burned in the correfoc, while between all of us, we build the alternatives to the system, which are the transformative economies.
