International Issues

Our Grain of Sand

The International Issues Commission inside the organisation of the Sixth World Social Forum has gathered the proposed goals for the construction of the Youth Camp, and responded in the areas of translation, reception of participants (also in charge of contingencies for whom Visas are necessary), and internal transportation for volunteers.

Regarding Visas, despite the different difficulties that have appeared, the commission has been able to resolve matters with contingencies and will continue working to ensure an effective process for entering the Youth Camp.
