Marseilles, March 10-18, 2012 [en]
29 August 2011

 

From March 10 to 18, 2012, the Alternative World Water Forum (FAME or Forum Alternatif Mondial de l’Eau) will be held in Marseilles, France. This event is being, organized by associations and movements, trade unions, NGOs, citizens and elected representatives from all over the world.

A forum about activism and solidarityThe FAME will be a meeting place for all people who are fighting for water: against the appropriation of land and water, against the development of shale gas, which pollutes underground aquifers and rivers; against the privatization of water by multinationals, more or less all over the world…

This will be a chance to look towards Africa and the Mediterranean and meet up again with rural associations and women’s organizations who attended the World Social Forum in Dakar.

A forum about sharing experiences and alternativesFAME will focus particularly on illustrating the mobilization of citizen movements and civil society associations around Lake Nokoué in Benin with the support of Emmaüs International, the remunicipalising of water in Paris, the ongoing expansion of public-public partnerships, the practical proposals for ensuring access to water and food security for rural populations. With numerous first-hand accounts from associations, experts in the field, and elected representatives from all over the world…

A forum about ideas and artFAME will be an opportunity to discuss the power of water, which is often concentrated in very few hands, and its distribution; the future of water companies and also of the various forms of global citizenship for water management. But FAME will not be just debates; there will also be displays, shows, concerts, and a big party!
