>In the frame of next EPA in Vienna , CRID supports an initiative proposal to
>make visible alternatives and proposals that will be discussed and promoted
>in ESF2006 activities by ESF participation organisations ,
>This proposal, initiated by Secours Catholique, and related to the Athens
>ESF preparation process,
>is in preparation and discussion stage, especially its
>implementation ( in two different aspects : during the event and on the ESF
>Pierre George from Secours Catholique, present in Vienna , invites people
>interested by this issue (collecting and making visible to all ESF
>participants , the proposals promoted by ESF participating organizations
>and groups of organisations ) to discuss it during an adhoc meeting that
>could take place on january 8th
>For further information : Pierre George pierre-george at club-internet.fr
>CRID - Bernard Pinaud
>-(first page of joined
>Outline proposal to be discussed in EPA about a scheme to collect proposals
>discussed in activities held in ESF
>1 - Proposals feed the social forum process
>There is a widespread wish that social forum process should be a space where
>proposal and alternatives promoted by participants are visible .with the
>same levels of diversity, pluralism, responsibility, self organisation as
>A way to help progressing towards this is :
> a.. Facilitate emergence of written Proposals during the forum event
>(presented in the name of an explicit list of organisations, or entities
> b.. Facilitate review of those Proposals, and expression of mark of
>interest towards them, by a maximum number of participants to the social
>forum process, and by the media
> A simple scheme can facilitate direct relationships, contacts, interviews,
>between media, and Proposal promoters
>2 - Proposals - Proposal groups - Proposal BillBoard
>A Proposal has three main elements : 1/ Description of shared Goals and
>Objectives, both long term and short term, 2/ description of associated
>outlines of Joint work plan and action agenda (action and work are used here
>in their broadest sense) , and 3/ identity of its promoters ( see §4).
>The Proposal Billboard,. A plurality of Proposals, will appear in the
>Proposal Billboard, with potentially interconnected goals, objectives, plans
>agendas, and also with some discrepancies between them.
>This is a place for every participant to review and assess an attitude
>towards those proposals. (ignore, ask for info, discuss, be a supporter, be
>a co-promoter ).
>During the forum event, Proposal Billboard is a series of light panels with
>sheets of papers posted on them.
>Outside the forum event,. the Proposal Billboard is a ESF Process web site
>Proposal Module. Contacts can be helped there by the technical possibility
>to form discussion groups around the proposals ( this should be possible by
>Some rules are suggested here to keep Proposal Billboard a space of explicit
>and plural initiatives :
> 1.. The proposal Billboard is linked to the ESF process and is a permanent
>Billboard under responsibility of EPA.
> b.. Proposals displayed in the ESF Proposal Billboard have been presented,
>or, better, discussed during an activity during an ESF forum event, and are
>promoted/sponsored explicitly by at least one organisation/entity being co
>organizer of this activity, and thus agreeing on social forum charter of
> c.. Proposal title is explicit and specific enough .
> 4.. Proposal, like activities, can be located by their promoters in
>thematic and proximity areas on the ESFweb site.
>3 - Two tasks suggested by earlier experiences ( Paris Memory 2003 and Porto
>1 -Set up a Proposal Collecting Team during the Athens ESF event.
>It collects proposal texts and affix them during the forum on wooden boards,
>for attention of participants and the media, in order to foster contacts,
>group joining, proposal supporting. It cheers also proposal promoters to
>fill up the proposals on the Process site after the forum. This team can be
>set up by Greek Organizing Committee, with participation of Systematize
>Group, and could involve militants of organisation involved in popular
>education, that can organize volunteers before the forum.
>2--Include a Proposal Module in ESF Workspace site with minimal
>administration and clear protocols.
>Any organization or entity registered on the site can enter a proposal in
>its own name, alone or as one among several promoters, which form together a
>Proposal Group. Links with ESF activities are made explicit, and main
>changes are notified by messages to involved actors- Such a module is
>scheduled in the version of the process web site available in March
>Some concrete questions to be addressed:
>How to communicate about the proposal billboard and the web site proposal
>module before and after the event? How should volunteers relate to forum
>participants, about issuing or reviewing proposals,? How many Proposal
>booths should be set up in the Territory of the social forum event ? How
>many volunteers are requested? How many copies of the Billboard should be
>build?- How many panels ? .
