Panel on Convivialism at the World Social Forum
(Febr 17th 2024)

An online panel on the “Convivialist Manifesto & Manifestation” was held on Febr. 17th 2024 as part of the World Social Forum 2024 in Nepal. A video of the panel can be watched on YouTube.




The Convivialist International is a collective of intellectuals with an open question: How can we live together with our differences without massacring each other? We focus on ecological, economic and political problems and, based on the expertise and engagement of the members of our collective, we outline general principles (Common Humanity, Common Naturality, Control of Hubris) and propose concrete political measures (e.g. max. income, eradication of tax heavens, planetary citizens’ parliament, etc.). We published the First Convivialist Manifesto. A Declaration of Interdependence in 2013. It was written and signed by 64 French speaking intellectuals. In 2019, we published the Second Convivialist Manifesto. Towards a Post-Neo-Liberal World. It was signed by almost 300 intellectuals from all over the world. The time has now come to write a Third Manifesto to tackle the most urgent problems of today and work out a plan for systemic change at all levels of society. In the session we will explore how can we can further deprovincialize and universalize the manifesto by opening it up to intellectuals and activists from the Global South and East.
