Consulta Hemisferica

The plan would be to use the Collaborative Democracy software to bring together groups in about 20 countries in the Hemisphere to work on a plan for Hemispheric Economic Development. We do have contacts in a few of these countries but no where near what we need to make this an impactful event.

However, our membership in APC provides at least some contact in much of the Hemisphere and, shortly after the USSF 2010, the Hemispheric Foro de las Americas is taking place and would represent an excellent venue for this event. We are proposing doing the consulta at the 2010 Foro with a build-up using every opportunity we can to do a CD on Hemispheric economic and social collaboration.

We will approach the APC seeking resources to fund this project.
