Lines of action

To carry out its mission in a concrete and operational way, GTAGlobal Tapestry of Alternatives develops around 5 specific lines of action that organize the annual objectives. By it's lines of actions, the GTA tends to:

  • [A] Document : Foster platforms and spaces of exchange, mutual learning, documentation and vibility of the project amongst existing alternatives.
  • [B] Disseminate : Propagate the idea and visibility and process of the GTA among different media
  • [C] Connect : Create a space for already existing networks to connect and engage cross-sectorally.
  • [D] Stimule : Stimulating new networking and weaving. Enable and stimulate new networks / confluences of alternatives in countries or regions that do not have them, by providing key lessons from current GTA's Weavers.
  • [E] Support : Develop strategies and actions of solidarity and support with allied projects and networks

Annual planning

In the following section we describe the objectives per year. The specified letter connect each objective with the Lines of Actions described above. This is an organic plan that is regularly updated.

  • Introduce the GTA idea in different gatherings and conferences. [B]
  • Create a web presence to communicate GTA in a global level. First version of the website available in www.globaltapestryofalternatives.org [B]

2020 (current objectives)


  • Create a toolbox of resources to weave local and thematic networks to promote the creation of new weavers
  • National meetings for building alliances between alternative experiences (and resistance movements they are linked to) in the countries where they are already articulated; encouraging the spread of such initiatives into new areas.
  • Similar processes promoted in at least 20 countries/regions in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe.
  • First global meeting of those participating in the GTA.
  • Expressions of solidarity with movements, either as the GTA or as a listing of its participating organisations/movements.
  • Emergence of the GTA as a global forum for full range of activities relating to systemic transformation, in close collaboration with global fora like the WSF.

2022 (and coming years)

  • Facilitating establishment of autonomous regional ‘enclaves’ in all the countries where it would be possible, learning from the experiences of the Zapatista in Chiapas and the Kurdish initiative in Rojava.
  • Continued plugging into efforts, initiatives and mobilizations openly challenging the dominant system and advocating systemic alternatives in appropriate spaces, conditions and circumstances.
  • Continued global campaigns of information about the initiative, global/regional meetings, and documentation/outreach.
  • Consolidation of GTA as a global forum for a full range of activities relating to systemic transformation.
