The Norwegian Social Forum is an alliance of 70 organisations and networks struggling against the neo-liberal agenda, for a more democratic and just world where people, society and the environment are put over economical gain.
The Norwegian Social Forum (NSF) is the Norwegian branch of the World Social Forum. The NSF consist of a board responsible for organising the activities of the forum (elected each year at the NSF’s annual meeting) along with the 70 organisations associated with the alliance. Our biggest event is the biannual «Globalisation Conference».
The Globalisation Conference is held every second year in Oslo, and is the Norwegian equivalent of the World Social Forum.
About the Globalisation Conference
The Globalisation Conference is the main program of NSF, and is one of the largest political workshop of civil organisations, labour unions and political parties in Norway.
The conference is organised every other year in Oslo, and serves as a meeting place and forum for activists, trade unionists and other engaged in the communities in Norway to collaborate and work for a world where people, society and the environment are understood as more important than economic gain. The conference consists of plenaries, seminars, workshops, debates, cultural events and lectures that are organised with speakers from both Norway and abroad.
The conference is organized on a mainly volunteer basis.
