Another world is possible, another Windsor starts here — the tagline of the 2010 Canadian Social Forum reflects the spirit of the three day conference going on now, right here in Windsor.

The Canadian Social Forum, which began this morning and continues through Sunday, is a unique conference to gather more than twenty organizations specializing in social justice, labour studies and human rights issues to present ideas, conduct seminars and workshops, lead panel discussions and interact with community participants.

The Social Forum is designed to tackle nine major issues this weekend:  Climate Change, Poverty, Education, Human Rights / Human Trafficking, Social Equality, Food; Agriculture and Global Sustainability, Labour and Free Trade.

Guest speakers include President of the Windsor Workers’ Action Centre Ron Drouillard, Direct of Labour studies at the U of W Alan Hall, Jae Muzzin of the Windsor Guerrilla Gardening Collective, Director Natalie Mehra of the Ontario Health Coalition, Head of Department of Philosophy at the U of W Dr. Jeff Noonan and many others.

Interested in attending?  Find out more on guest speakers through this schedule.  The Social Forum takes place largely at All Saints Church in Downtown Windsor.
