In the face of the great upheavals facing humanity, it has become urgent to profoundly transform the very structure of our societies and the relationship we have with nature and the prodigious earth system we are destroying.

The concept of the World Popular Forum was born in response to the countless upheavals of our time; several phenomena have resonated with each other, notably the harmful impact of a certain «upper class» on the entire human ecosystem;

Through this concept of a World Popular Forum, we will seek to free modern man from the horrors and dictates imposed by capitalism and oligarchic omnipotence.

And to offer citizens the opportunity to free themselves from the darkness of ignorance, dogma and unfounded beliefs in order to try to adopt a new political, historical, philosophical and social perspective on the major issues of our time.

This project was born from a desire to create a common place to expand the field of knowledge and offer the possibility to each citizen to express himself and to change the rules of the socio- political-financial game.

That each of us can become a force of proposal on central subjects in a globalized system in the hands of the financial elite and of a small political caste too used to the game of musical chairs…

A place that aims to generate a counter-hegemony by grasping in a profound way the evils of our time to better treat them; Inequality, economy, conflicts, food, energy etc… In total, twelve major areas, all interrelated and interdependent, will have the opportunity to be addressed within the forums.

You will have understood that the World Popular Forum is a place of political reappropriation and civic rights conceived in the form of citizenship workshops networked within an architectural figure whose constructive layout favors this kind of dialogue.

The World Popular Forum is a space that synthesizes the struggles to be waged and that restores to the people and to the leaders of this world the founding thought of the mass: that is, the thought of the people themselves.

It is the anti-World Economic Forum par excellence since it concentrates, not the power of the oligarchy and the political-financial caste in a place of inter-society, but, in a plural way, the expression of the voice of the people whose value is inestimable since obviously over- representative in number of individuals!

Within a space that is both unique in its synthetic approach to societal issues and multiple in its ability to network several forums together on several continents. It is therefore a real network that can be set up on the territory of a country, in each of the metropolises, towns and countryside that make it up.

A place, which will finally allow to demand, even to force the elected officials and other powerful of this world to redistribute the reins of power and decision making.

To make the caste finally accountable to the citizens, keeping in mind that the objective is not to generate a new form of duality between individuals but to integrate everyone without any discrimination in this new world order which is already at work, Popular by essence!
