9,00 - 9,40 PLENARY LECTURE: SOLIDARITY AS A CONCEPT FOR ENGAGED UNIVERSITY – EXPERIENCES FROM LATIN AMERICA

María Rosa Tapia
Latin American Center for Solidarity Service-Learning and University of Buenos Aires, Argentina

Words convey different meanings, histories, and cultural backgrounds in different parts of the world, and diverse theoretical roots and frameworks from different regions may enrich the global reflection on Community Engagement.  In Latin America, we talk about “Solidarity” to describe the “encounter”, committed and responsible to each other’s needs, respectful of their dignity and their culture. It is an open kind of solidarity, horizontal, sensitive to injustice and poverty, active and transforming. The concept of “solidarity” and its relevance for quality service-learning practices will be analyzed as a pedagogical approach to promote an Engaged University, and theory will be illustrated with service-learning experiences from Latin America.
