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.


  • Continue the development to achieve a more robust and improved version of our “meta-maps of alternatives”.
  • Strengh mutual connections (sharing information and ideas, practical collaborations) amongst alternative initiatives (groups, movements, networks and processes) that are publicly visible.
  • Develope concrete and operational tools for Weavers to deepen their autonomy; expand and strengthen their networks; promote mapping and self-documentation of their members actions and practices.
  • Start the definition of a common Open Framework for the identification, description and understanding of alternatives around the globe.
  • Create a toolbox of resources to weave local and thematic networks to promote the creation of new weavers
  • Promote and weaver similar processes promoted in at least 20 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.
  • Organize the first global phisical meeting of those participating in the GTA Core and main endorsers.
  • Engage into actions and expressions of solidarity with movements, either as the GTA or as a listing of its participating organisations/movements.
  • Establish the GTA as an international process for full range of activities relating to systemic transformation, in close collaboration with global fora like the World Social Forum.
  • Produce a charter/declaration or manifesto that publicly expose the core of agreements of the GTA's networked members.


  • 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.
  • 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.
