   The prospects of in-depth and transnational dialogue on systemic change
   and the future challenges for global movements and their processes.

   The Covid-19 pandemic has the world in grips and an unprecedented
   economic and social crisis with global impact seem unavoidable. From
   austerity politics and global inequalities to extractivist capitalism and
   environmental destruction, from racist border regimes to extended states of
   emergency and militarization, the pandemic makes everything that is still
   wrong with global capitalism, more visible. The transnational dimension of
   these issues makes global dialogue, reflection, and organization between
   social movements, activists and the Left once again imperative.

   On 30 April the new initiative called *Global Dialogue for Systemic
   Change
   <https://systemicalternatives.org/2020/04/29/global-dialogue-for-systemic-change/>*
was
   presented with the aim to co-facilitate and support this process, creating
   stronger links among activist groups, civic society organizations and
   social movements, and bringing in a wider range of activists and
   organizations from Africa, Asia, South, and North America and Europe
   together in order to dialogue on strategies that will help confront the new
   challenges collectively.

   On Friday, 8 May (18:00 CET), Haris Golemis (transform! europe) and
   Katerina Anastasiou (transform! europe) discuss with:

   Christophe Aguiton (Attac, France), Pablo Solón (Alternativas
   sistémicas, Bolivia), Moema Miranda (*Global Dialogue*, Brazil),
   Raffaela Bolini (*Global Dialogue*, Italy) and Walter Baier (transform!
   europe, Austria) about the prospects of in-depth and transnational
   dialogue on systemic change and the future challenges for global movements
   and their processes.

   Almost 20 years from the 1st World Social Forum in Porto Allegre, what
   are the lessons learned and how do we adapt to the new conditionalities of
   today? How do we facilitate global convergence, not only to confront the
   upcoming challenges, but also in order to imagine collectively a different
   future?

   Join us !

   The webinar will be held in English.

   In an effort to support Global Dialogue for Systemic Change despite the
   disastrous progression of the Covid-19 pandemic and with the ambition to
   facilitate a continuity of dialogue between social movements and the Left,
   transform! europe will be hosting a series of webinars in the upcoming
   weeks.
