Tools and contents

[EN] “Memory and tools of the ESF 2003” was developed between 2003 and 2005 by various groups and organizations which lead and/or have already led projects concerning the memory of the social forums.
It aims to allow a wide public to access texts, images and audio recordings concerning the ESF, and to use this memory to prolong the activities of 2003 in a workspace open to everyone to help build new activities and proposals.
Finally, the project attempts to demonstrate that it is possible to build a living memory of the social forums and to try to raise wider awareness of the stakes involved in the collection and the valorization of the content. Thus every actor will be able to benefit from the experience acquired and from ideas that have been widely thought through.

[FR] « Mémoire et outils du FSE 2003 » a été élaboré au cours de la période 2003/2005 par différents groupes et organisations qui mènent et/ou ont déjà mené des projets relatifs à la mémoire des forums sociaux.
Il vise à permettre à un large public d’accéder à des textes, des images et des enregistrements audio relatifs au FSE et à utiliser cette mémoire pour prolonger les activités de 2003 dans un espace de travail ouvert à tous-tes pour aider à construire de nouvelles activités et propositions.
Enfin, le projet s’attache à démontrer qu’il est possible de construire une mémoire vivante des forums sociaux et tenter d’impulser une prise de conscience plus large des enjeux de la collecte et de la valorisation des contenus, qui permettent à chaque acteur de bénéficier de l’expérience acquise et du mûrissement de la réflexion commune.
