Volunteer for ISF 2006


9-13 November 2006, New Delhi, India
This time it is Delhi after the successful meeting of World Social Forum in Mumbai - from January 16-21, 2004. The India Social Forum, www.wsfindia.org, is a crucial event, especially given the turbulent times today that aim to strengthen social movements globally to realize that Another World is Possible.
The World Social Forum (WSF) is "…an open meeting place for reflective thinking, democratic debate of ideas, formulation of proposals, free exchange of experiences and inter-linking for effective action, by groups and movements of civil society that are opposed to neo- liberalism and to domination of the world by capital and any form of imperialism, and are committed to building a society centered on the human person".(From the WSF Charter of Principles).
The WSF meeting in Mumbai drew nearly 100,000 people and we expect a turn out of around 50-60,000 people in New Delhi, including over 1,000 international delegates. There will be a variety of events- plenaries, workshops, testimonies, film festivals, exhibitions, music, dance, arts, etc.
There are a variety of ways in which you can assist us in making the ISF successful.
Volunteer: Let us know if you would like to volunteer your time in organizing the ISF. Volunteers are needed in all capacities right from report writing, assisting media centre functioning, organizing events, translations from Hindi and English to other regional languages, assure solidarity accommodation, assist cultural events, and overall to manage and take ISF to its logical conclusion.
Outreach / Mobilisation : Prior to ISF we need volunteers to mobilize support from various quarters of Delhi – colleges, universities, working class localities, etc. We would like to get the message of ISF to as many people as possible
We required more then 1000 volunteers so join us in big numbers (maximum 25 volunteer from each Organization/ Institute) until 30th October 2006. A modest stipend to meet the travel and food costs will be made available to all the volunteers.
The success of the ISF hinges on the efforts of volunteers who offer their time, energy, and skills to making another world possible.

We look forward to hearing from you.
In solidarity,
