The vast majority of sessions at the Public Forum are organized by participants. In order to qualify for selection, organisers must complete an application form available on the Public Forum website: www.wto.org/pf15. The WTO will select the best proposals and allocate the sessions.
The Public Forum is an annual event which was first launched in 2001. It provides a platform for public debate and discussion across a wide range of WTO issues and activities. The Public Forum has become one of the most important platforms for dialogue between the stakeholders of the WTO. Over the years, more than 10,000 representatives from NGOs, civil society, academia, business, the media, governments, parliamentarians and inter-governmental organizations have attended the Public Forum.
