All Ready for Brazil’s Pan-Amazon Forum

Next week, people and social organizations from nine countries where the world’s largest forest, the Amazon Forest, is situated, will meet in Manaus, capital of the state of Amazonas, Brazil, with the aim of strengthening their alliances and solidarity for another possible world.

The 4th Pan-Amazon Social Forum (FSPA) takes place next week, between January 18 and 22, and will include issues linked to diversity, sovereignty and peace in its debates.


The FSPA, which is being held a week before the 5th World Social Forum takes place in Porto Alegre between January 26 and 31, can be seen as offering a foretaste of several subjects which will be discussed in the capital of Rio Grande do Sul.


The organizers of the Forum say that more than a hundred events have been arranged, including workshops, seminars, round tables, conferences, trade fairs, exhibitions and cultural activities.


These will take place in the Santa Terezinha, Estadual, Brasileiro and Francisca Albuquerque schools, the University of Amazonas Arts Center and the Port of Manaus from 9:00a.m to 6:00p.m and afterwards cultural activities will be held.


More than 8,000 participants from several continents are expected.
