Abstract:   This article aims to highlight the meanings and challenges presented by the II World Social Forum, with a focus on the plural nature and efficiency of networking. The emergence of a number of social movements, their struggles and support for na alternative and solidary globalization, where human dignity can be the prism through which a possible new world is envisaged. Future challenges are brought into the scene so as to highlight common elements and discuss divergences, thus overcoming this initial movement of contestation of the present model of society.
Translated abstract:   Este texto enfatiza os sentidos e desafios apresentados pelo II Fórum Social Mundial, tendo como elementos de análise o caráter plural e a eficiência do trabalho em rede. A efervescência de diversos movimentos sociais, suas lutas e bandeiras por uma globalização alternativa e solidária, onde a dignidade humana possa ser o prisma de um outro mundo possível. Desafios futuros também são trazidos para ressaltar os elementos comuns e discutir as divergências, superando esse movimento inicial de contestação ao atual modelo de sociedade.
