Dear Social Forumites,

We're writing with a warm invitation to come to Sheffield for a weekend
of discussions and debates, meeting other local social forum types,
sharing experiences and lessons and reflecting on the UK social forum
movement. Whether you feel like a seasoned SFer, you've just got
involved in a local social forum, or if you're just thinking of starting
one - we'd love to meet you!

The date we're proposing, following discussions at ESF 2004, is the
weekend of 4th and 5th December. This will mean that we can also use the
space to communicate with those who will be travelling to Paris, to
begin the process for the next ESF.

The agenda will, of course, be open - if you want to edit it, go to this
WIKI page -


Here are some suggestions to start with (also on the WIKI):


ESF reflections - now the circus has gone, what did we think?
SF Charter? What models of organisation do we/should we use?

Building local social forums - tips, tricks and tactics.
Building a UK network - webs, survey etc.
Futurology - what comes next?

RSVP! We need to know that enough people are coming to make room
bookings, sorting out sleeping arrangements etc, so please respond to
sheffieldsocialforum at riseup.net

Kev and Dan
