Our digital magazine

metapolis is an initiative by Common Action Forum. A collective effort of CAF’s team, members, collaborators and participants. Our goal is to develop and support a progressive agenda as alternative to the current model that has led us to a world of increasing inequalities, environmental devastation and unaccomplished freedom for most of the global citizenry.

The New Social Contract of the XXI century (NSC)

The New Social Contract for the 21st Century, a project by Maysoun Douas in collaboration with the Common Action Forum, discusses the conflicts of a continually changing present. In this first series, we have focused on democratic processes, bringing together important actors from our political and social scene. Manuela Carmena, Fernando Mayor Zaragoza, Ana Sáenz De Miera, José María Lassalle and Andrés Ordóñez reflect on the political landscape and how citizens can shape or already are enacting change.

Annual Forum

Each year, CAF holds a major public forum, gathering experts and relevant actors to engage in a series of debates that can give fruit to further progressive initiatives that move its mission forward. Problems such as poverty, which affects half of humanity, or global warming, which affects us all, are just part of a dystopian reality that no longer allows us to give ourselves the luxury of thinking about local utopias.

Each November, all formal members have the opportunity to meet in Madrid, debate specific topics in round-table sessions and participate in the planning of institutional activities.
