The Sao Paulo State's Social Educators Association - AEESSP will organizate, at UNICAMP - Campinas' State University, in april 2017, from the 10th to the 12th, the AIEJI's XIX World Congress of Social Educators, following the historical series of International Association of Social Educators - AIEJI Congresses held by its associated members.
This will be a strategic moment to social educators from Brazil and Latin America to meet colleagues from other places in the world to debate the pathways of a profession and a research, educational and practical field, that aim to build a more fair, equal and just society. In a context where we worldwide are pushed to critically reflect aiming to deepen our ethical, theoretical and methodological background, to work on a practice that needs to redefine itself in function of the transitory moment that contemporary society crosses. This congress will be a special opportunity to join some of the most important thinkers on social education, popular education and non formal education and agents in daily processes of social transformation that by acting in the cracks of the system build surviving and resistance strategies for those people that are placed at the margin of our main economic system. And we must do it together.
