Norway Social Forum (NSF) is part of a broad international movement working for a just world and against the neoliberal economy and politics that dominate the world today.

The Norway Social Forum is an offshoot of and the Norwegian Committee for the World Social Forum. The Norway Social Forum is thus based on the Charter of the World Social Forum (see Charter here).

Each other year, NSF organizes the Globalisation Conference. The Globalisation conference is a meeting place and a forum for collaboration for activists, trade unionists and others engaged in the communities in Norway working for a world where concern for people, society and the environment is more important than economic profit. The conference is held every two years and during the four days of the conference a number of large meetings, seminars, workshops, debates and lectures are organized with speakers from both home and abroad. In addition, the conference offers exciting cultural events such as culture kindergarten, concerts, movies and book presentations.

The conference is supported by over 50 member organizations that have joined the platform of the Norway Social Forum, along with a number of other promoters. The general assembly of the conference elects a board that is responsible for the implementation of the Globalisation Conference.

Tickets are available for the day only, or for the full 4-day conference. Prices vary, from 200 -650 Norwegian Krone (= approx $30-$100) Get tickets
