> We are living in an unprecedented global crisis that requires a deep
> reflection, rethinking and dialogue among activists, organizations and
> social movements around the world. Critical strategies are essential, to
> deal with the current crises and to shape what comes next.
> More than ever we need to share analysis, experiences, ideas and
> alternatives, in the face of growing health, social, economic, political
> and environmental crises.
> Many networks, organizations, and social movements are engaged in
> national, regional, continental and worldwide discussions on the challenges
> in front of us.
> The aim of the Global Dialogue for Systemic Change is to support this
> process, creating stronger links among activist groups and social
> movements, and bringing in a wider range of activists and organisations
> from Africa, Asia, South and North America and Europe. It is not our
> ambition to replace or attempt to centralize the multiple valuable
> initiatives already underway.
> Over the next few months we will organise webinars in different languages
> addressing the key issues in our struggle for systemic change. The
> webinars will explore the main tasks, demands and alternatives that are
> needed at local, national and global levels to strengthen the connectivity
> and solidarity of movements, to forge a future for the people and for
> nature, and to overcome neoliberal globalization, capitalism,
> extractivism, patriarchy, xenophobia, authoritarianism, anthropocentrism,
> racism and militarism.
> Each webinar will be co-organized by a different group of organisations
> and movements, based in different regions of the world. We will provide simultaneous
> translation in English, French and Spanish, gradually in other languages.
> The webinars will be streamed live through social media. encouraging
> interaction between participants of different countries, social sectors,
> genders and ages. Recordings of the webinars will be subtitled in several
> languages and diffused on websites and social media.
> The online Global Dialogue for Systemic Change will also serve as a
> multilingual portal for communicating and sharing activities with similar

> interconnection in the emergency period of lockdown, in the transitional
> period and in the future.
