Print Friendly, PDF & Email

More information on this fall’s planned international meeting of ecosocialists

The response to last month’s call for an international meeting of ecosocialists has been very encouraging. As that announcement said:

“This meeting is a very preliminary first step: we will get to know each other, establish a provisional organizing committee, and begin discussions of projects and activities. Our main goal will be to set a time, place and preliminary agenda for a larger meeting in 2008, at which we hope there will be broad participation from green-left activists around the world.”

This will not be an educational event or an academic conference. It is an organizing meeting for people who want to improve communication and coordination among ecosocialist activists around the world.
