The Education and Solidarity Network is developing an international social network for education professionals. Its aim is to put education professionals from different countries in contact with each other so they can exchange ideas, share experience and develop solidarity projects of all kinds!
This project is part of a broader discussion initiated by our American, Australian, Canadian and French members on the issue of young people’s commitment within solidarity organisations. How can we encourage young people to join trade unions, mutual societies and social economy and solidarity organisations?
This summer, some thirty young education professionals logged into our first experimental community for the first time.
Already, they are discussing and devising solutions to issues as diverse as improving the teachers’ image in our societies; donations of educational and teaching materials between schools; the role of music in education; organising study trips among education professionals; integrating handicapped pupils in classes; mentoring and intergenerational solidarity between professionals etc.
In a few months’ time, the Education and Solidarity Network and its members will take its findings from this pilot community and develop an international virtual networking and collaboration tool.
Besides France, the United States, Australia and Canada, the Education and Solidarity Network is currently recruiting participants in all countries in which its members are mobilised: Mexico, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burkina Faso, Moldavia, Luxembourg, Sweden etc.
If you like the idea of working with colleagues from around the world and would like to share innovative ideas and devise solidarity projects with them, this is your chance!
