The municipalist approach to politics and movement building is starting to gain attention in the general leftist debate and within popular movements in Sweden. Building on our previous work we want to strengthen the ties between groups and individuals interested in municipalism, and help transform this growing awareness into organising efforts and local initiatives.
The challenges are twofold: Firstly to produce material in Swedish and to contextualise ideas from the municipalist movement into a Swedish situation. Secondly to create meeting and learning possibilities for groups and individuals interested in municipalism.
With this proposal we therefore want to facilitate the formation of local study/action groups by a series of interlinked activities: a winter gathering; a study guide and recurring online and offline study discussion meetings; a webportal serving as a library of tools and ideas for municipalist initiatives; a how-to-guide on municipalist organising and practice; and, finally, a summer gathering.
