Celebrating its tenth year of existence, the World Social Forum (WSF) will take place in 2010 in a decentralized manner, with at least 27 regional, national and local events throughout the world over the next period (see agenda on the WSF official website). Opening this process, the regional event "FSM 10 Years: Greater Porto Alegre" takes place from January 25th to 29th in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, with more than 500 decentralized activities in the cities of Porto Alegre, Gravataí, Canoas, São Leopoldo, Novo Hamburgo and Sapiranga. One of the core activities of the Greater Porto Alegre Social Forum is the International Seminar "10 Years Later: Challenges and proposals for another possible world" which will feature more than 70 intellectuals and social leaders around the world, many of whom have integrated the process of creation and construction of the WSF in the last ten years.
