Working groups

The purpose of a working group is to build a debate support dossier, a sort of strategic thinking "kit" and "tools" for those working on behalf of social movements, which will be freely available and freely distributed. Each group shall set up its own working method. Each working group will have at least one group leader. The group may be conducted in partnership with one or more magazines, websites and/or publishers. The dossier shall consist of articles, interviews and other relevant documents. The issues and visions of the social movements will be the focal point. They will also try to address different points of view depending on the regions, the languages, the types of movements, and the topics.
