This week (02/2011) ETC Group travels to Dakar to meet friends and partners – new, old and yet-to-be – to learn, listen and share information about corporate power and emerging technologies, including their impacts on marginalized communities. In the run-up to the Rio+20 Summit in May 2012, the international community will be confronted with a challenging list of so-called ‘green economy’ technology and policy proposals – as well as major agricultural and environmental institutional decisions. Dakar’s World Social Forum gives civil society an opportunity to share research and plan actions in the months and years ahead.
Here’s where ETC Group & friends will be over the next week and a half. Times, locations and local contact details will be updated on our website (www.etcgroup.org) as they become available!
