    ActiviXML is a dialect of XML that intends to abstract the information flow particularly between large scale small scale social activist communities and individual activists in order to reinforce the impact of social activism events.

ActiviXML defines a standard format (ActiviXML Schema) for the documents that describe a social activism event. This standard format categorizes information and builds information hierarchy.
