|Caritas Europa is registered as an organisation to be consulted on WSF matters and will participate at the upcoming World Social Forum 2007. The event will take place 20-25 January 2007 in Nairobi, Kenya.
Caritas Europa considers the World Social Forum (WSF) to be a permanent world process, gathering social movements, networks, NGOs and other civil society organisations opposed to neo-liberalism and a world dominated by capital or by any form of imperialism together in an open meeting place.
Secours Catholique-Caritas France will act as the official ‘Caritas Europa Focal Point on WSF/ESF matters’, avoiding the need for Caritas Europa to ‘duplicate’ in its working structures or staff structures capacity and expertise that is already available in Secours Catholique-Caritas France and that can be easily made available through this focal point to the wider Caritas Europa network.
