Lines of action

To carry out its mission in a concrete and operational way, GTAGlobal Tapestry of Alternatives develops around 6 specific lines of action that organize the annual objectives. By it's lines of actions, the GTA tends to:

Annual planning

In the following section we describe the objectives per year. This is an organic plan that is regularly updated.


  • Organize the first global physical assembly of those participating in the GTA Core, Weavers and some Endorsers representatives.
  • Continue the development to achieve a more robust and improved version of our "meta-maps of alternatives" called GTAMap, deploying new autonomous mappings by Endorsers and Weavers.
  • Strengh mutual connections (sharing information and ideas, practical collaborations) amongst alternative initiatives (groups, movements, networks and processes) that are publicly visible.
  • Deepen the knowledge and understanding of the weaving processes by researching on the Weavers' history, processes and perspectives
  • Develope convivial tools for Weavers to deepen their autonomy; expand and strengthen their networks; promote mapping and self-documentation of their members actions and practices.
  • Create a toolbox of resources to weave local and thematic networks to promote the creation of new weavers
  • Promote new weaver processes in at least 5 countries/regions in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe.
  • Promote the organization of 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.
  • Engage in actions and expressions of solidarity with movements, either as the GTA or as a listing of its participating organisations/movements.
  • Consolidate the GTA as an international process for full range of activities relating to systemic transformation, in close collaboration with global spaces like the World Social Forum.
  • Produce a charter/declaration or manifesto that publicly promotes the core of agreements of the GTA's networked members.


  • Organize an international gathering of Indigenous Peoples and other local communities (rural and urban) who are practicing or moving towards Radical Democracy and Autonomy
  • Facilitating the interconnection 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.
  • Sustain an international reference mapping and documentation platform that houses information and open knowledge about thousands of Alternatives at an international level, built in a collaborative way.
  • Continued global campaigns of information about the initiative, global/regional meetings, and documentation/outreach.
