World Assembly of Inhabitants
- (WSF Tunis, 24-28 March 2015)
We, the participants of the World Assembly of Inhabitants
, gathered in Tunis from 24 to 28 March 2015, have met for many activities grouped under seven themes during the World Social Forum to continue the processes of convergence as in many previous gatherings including WAI 2013 (Tunis) and the People's Alternative Social Urban Social Forum (Medellin, 2014).

First of all, we stand in solidarity with the people of Tunis against fundamentalism and terrorism.
We, the under-signed women and men, organisations, networks and movements of inhabitants of slums, neighbourhoods, settlements, cooperatives, tenants and mortgaged homeowners, squatters, homeless, workers including the informal ones, in urban and rural settings, therefore make the following Declaration:
This Declaration also seeks to promote dialogue with other Convergence Assemblies in the WSF and all over the world to build global convergence across all issues for another possible but better world. To further these goals, we resolve to strengthen the convergence of inhabitants’ organisations via the exchange of experiences, sharing of strategies, tools and a common agenda 2015-2017, and through the participation in and outside the gatherings of the global elite.
To this purpose we are committed and call all the inhabitants organisations and networks to organise the World Urban Social Forum (Quito, October 2016), in order to debate and deliberate the implementation of policies for a clear alternative to the neoliberal and technocratic approach of the UN Summit Habitat III, preparing it together from the local, national, regional and international level.
Raising our concerns regarding the UN Summit Habitat III preparatory process, its contents and resolutions, we are committed to bring also there the Civil society and social movements voice and demands.
To promote the convergence of struggles of networks and organisations
