It is impossible to achieve a Social and Ecological Transformation (which is the main goal of this WSF) without peace. This implies first of all a universal disarmament for political, economic, environmental and social reasons. This webinar will explore the strategies of the social and environmental movements for a demilitarisation of the political structures in the aftermath of the pandemic through the discussion of action oriented proposals.

There is no need to register for the event.
