Many thanks to the 5000 participants of the Convergences World Forum !
With 5000 participants from more than 1,300 organizations gathered in Paris on 17, 18 and 19 September 2013, the 6th Convergences World Forum was a major meeting for all actors committed towards a fair and sustainable world, whether from the solidarity-based area, the public sphere and the private sector. This leading event also hosted numerous media and students.
Convergences World Forum offered an ideal reflection space to invent tomorrow’s world solutions with more than 350 participants from around the world sharing their thoughts and ideas during the 60 debates, workshops and networking sessions. Encouraging the exchange is one of the primary objectives of the World Forum: the Market Place which gathered 40 dynamic exhibitors, the Co-creation Spot and networking events brought diverse actors to find innovative projects and new complementarities that which, hopefully, lays the foundation for future alliances towards a fair and sustainable world.
