The 3rd world congress of the hedonist international - Call for Proposals/Actions
The Hedonist International isn't an organisation, but an idea. We invite everyone to play with and experimentalize this idea, which is outlined in the Hedonist Manifesto. This manifesto is available in 15 languages and provides the conceptual framework for hedonist action. Whoever identifies with the manifesto and wants to help spread the idea and/or find out more about it ,is cordially invited to take part in the 3rd Hedonist World Congress.
To make the congress an exciting, colourful, inspiring and joyful event, it needs your creativity and energy. The more people play a part in the preparations, the greater the variety of themes and actions will be. The Congress, as the whole Hedonist International, lives on do-it-yourself, get-into-the-act, and active participation.
Up to now, we count about 60 sections in different countries – no one can say exactly how many there are – which have joined the idea and have begun to combine politics with fun, each in their own way. The first two World Congresses of the Hedonist International have taken place in Kaulitz 2010 and in Riebau 2011. This year, the 3rd Congress of the Hedonist International will occur from May 31st to June 4th, 2012 (Thursday to Monday). For four days, it shall bring together people from many countries, promote their networking and open up new perspectives to protest and resistance.
A congress which combines politics and fun
We will discuss theoretical concepts, rehearse new forms of action, reconsider social conflicts, debate alternative methods of political intervention, and we will learn about opportunities to have a good and happy life here and now. Congress program is planned along the topics Protest, Party, and Action.

Important note: Nobody earns money during or with the congress. It is about informing, imparting knowledge, and networking, it's about cooking, doing sports and build up things together. Of course you shouldn't be left alone with upcoming expenses. We are currently discussing different possibilities of financing. Proposals and cooperation concerning this issue are welcome as well!
