The Other Davos

17/01/2020 - 18/01/2020


At this year’s Other Davos, we will focus the debate on the global climate strikes and eco-socialist perspectives. Together with the global feminist movement, which found its expression in the historic women*strike in Switzerland on 14 June 2019, the climate strikes and the manifold ecological protests give cause for hope. In these movements we can see the contours of a world in solidarity, feminist and ecological. That is why we say, as we did with the first Other Davos in 1999:
Another world is possible – System Change Not Climate Change!

The goal of the Other Davos is to counter the networking of the ruling classes at the WEF with our ideas of solidarity and collective organization from below. We want to bring together transnational activists from different political and ecological contexts, exchange ideas with them, and finally develop eco-socialist perspectives together and gain impulses for a world of solidarity. Our guests this year come from the USA, Brazil, France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Great Britain and Switzerland.

The conference will be translated into German, English and French. In addition, childcare will be organized on Saturday throughout the program in the play barrack on the office premises. Following the official program, there will be a Soliparty with dinner at Provitreff in Zurich on Saturday evening.

Location is the Volkshaus in Zürich, Switzerland.

It takes a lot of us to make this uprising happen. We need you to shape this process with us.
