The methodology is participative and political.
As such it responds to and agrees with the concepts of human
being, organization and society that we want to build. Also,
it contributes to a social transformation that seeks to make
peoples' dreams come true.
It is a process of individual and collective
transformation in which knowledge, life experiences and values
are respected so that individuals and peoples may increase
their awareness and self-realization by promoting their own
development. This individual and collective process implies
an exchange among people who critically reflect and theorize
on their everyday practices in order to propose transformative
actions for themselves and their reality. From a critical
analysis of reality, participants will be able to order their
ideas, improve their concepts, learn new contents and set
new goals, thereby ensuring the feedback to social practices
and linking knowledge to transformative actions (action -
reflection - action).
The methodological process includes the following
steps and moments:
- Formation of workgroups
- 1st step: talking about life experiences
- 2nd step: reflecting on experiences - reflecting on what
- 3rd step: back to experience, practice and action with
- Plenary sessions : discussion and contributions
