The Forum, which will be an initiative of an unprecedented scale, is open from conception to implementation to all forces and interested citizens. Our goal is to organize a major political and popular event with the participation of at least 2,000 people, part European, high-level guests (European dimension of personalities including ministers of the new Greek government), political activists, unions, and social movements.
