The World Social Forum on Transformative Economies will celebrate its second face-to-face edition from 23 to 25 October, under the theme “We Accept the challenge: Transformative Economies versus COVID-19”, during the Solidarity Economy Fair of Catalonia in Barcelona.

The first edition took place from 25 June to 1 July, a meeting that aims to bring together social movements and initiatives that share the desire to put people and the environment at the centre of the economy and to end the economy based on extraction, growth, competitiveness and the market. The aim is to generate a framework of confluence of those economies that struggle to move towards resilient and collaborative societies, to build and strengthen alliances and joint strategic actions.


The organizations, networks, and entities participating in the FSMET process can register their transformative initiatives: struggles, campaigns, projects, policies, and practices that embody the search for transforming economies, in its broadest sense. We look for initiatives that respond to the great global challenges from concrete and localized practices.
