All around the world we can see examples of cities and autonomous
regions where social movements have risen, organizing and implementing
bottom-up democratic structures. People are sick of the current system
and have decided to unite and create a change in a time of crisis. What
about us living in countries where there aren’t such visible crisis? We
have problems with achieving equality and justice for all but we are not
in the midst of war or economic turmoil. But we do indeed have
different crisis in our societies, though they might not be as visible,
are not felt by a majority or people are not yet acting together in
How can we analyze our crisis and make them visible? How do we
mobilize and act together on the issues we are facing in our societies?
How can we engage people in the goal for a democratic society?
We are inviting fellow participants at the Fearless Cities forum from
countries and cities with similar realities to discuss these questions
and to exchange knowledge with each other. And of course anyone is
welcome no matter what places they live in.
