Link zum World Social Forum Montreal 2016: https://fsm2016.org/en/
After a giant opening march on Tuesday August 9th with more than 20.000 participants the World Social Forum (WSF) in Montreal/ Canada started Wednesday with its seminars and conferences. I attended an interesting seminar with the title "Mapping China today with a peoples perspective".
Three female professors from Chinese universities (Beijing and Hongkong) gave a critical description of the actual situation in China. They mentioned the enourmous economic, social and ecological problems and tensions which the country is facing after the "opening process" in the last decades.
Their main answer on the present situation was "recovery of the countryside". They reported about the "countryside recovery movement" and gave concrete examples for this movement to which they belong: educational and cultural projects, studies, international contacts. The famous social scientist Amir Samir attended one of their conferences.
