The People’s Committee for Our Territories calls society for the construction of a Social Forum in resistance to Habitat III, continuing the legacy of other Social Forums held before UN Habitat mega-events, such as the People’s Alternative Urban Social Forum in Medellin (April 2014), the Urban Social Forum in Naples (September 2012) and the World Assemblies of Inhabitants in Tunisia (2013 and 2015). All interested organizations are invited to take part in this process.
