How are the sessions organized?
The sessions are divided into four thematic topics
Rights and Freedoms
The Rights and Freedoms track is centered on the transformative power of municipalism. Throughout the world we see how grassroots movements born in cities, towns and rural areas have reached the institutions and are capable of things we thought were impossible: limiting the power of lobbies, advancing towards the right to housing and creating a new, more transparent, direct and participatory democracy.
Economy and Ecological Transition
The Economy and Ecological Transition track addresses one of the most important debates of our present: the rethinking of the concept of prosperity. Is an economy prosperous if it is based on depleting the basic resources we need to survive? Or a city if it is not designed around the needs of its inhabitants? We talk about the innovative solutions that municipalism is implementing to create a new prosperity.
Feminism, LGTBI and Care
The Feminism, LGTBI and Care track analyzes a revolution that has proven itself necessary: the feminization of politics. And this means not only increasing the direct involvement of women, but radically changing the perspective. Now is the time for dialogue, diversity of points of view, alliances and transformation of the economic and social system to reconnect it with what is essential for life.
Mobilization, organization and social movements
For every foot that municipalism has in the institutions, it has a thousand feet outside, in the streets, in the neighborhoods, in grassroots organizations, and it is from there that it draws the transforming force that has propelled it to victories that we believed were impossible. This new way of doing politics, from the bottom-up, face to face, talking to neighbors, has made municipalism have innovation and research into new forms of mobilization and organization at its core. This track analyzes the techniques and tools used up to now and the new ones that we can use to expand the municipal political project.
