2020 Call for Proposals | social-pedagogy

At
the final session of our 2018 conference, attended by 350 participants
from 17 countries, it was resolved to celebrate the event every two
years. Therefore, we are eagerly looking forward to our next conference
hosted by UCLAN (University of Central Lancashire, UK) in Preston from
Tuesday 16 June to Thursday 18 June, 2020.

This
conference is part of an international initiative to bring together
scholars and practitioners of social pedagogy and social education from
around the world.  It builds on many previous efforts, most recently the
conference ‘Social Education and Social Pedagogy: Bridging Traditions
and Innovations”, which represented a wide variety of topics reflecting
many of the diverse areas encompassed by social pedagogical research and
practice.

This
conference will focus on similar connections between social education
and social pedagogy while highlighting the many aspirations pedagogues
hold for a better world. It is our intention to connect and respond to
social change while exploring solutions for challenges in
sustainability, inequality, global violence, participatory democracy and
more.

Submissions
may include paper presentations or workshop proposals. Workshops must
offer attendees active participation through acquisition of a new skill
or through responsible engagement of participants in discussion and
problem-solving.

Proposals should be submitted via the conference proposal google form.

Proposals are due no later
than January 30, 2020. Accepted proposals will be notified by email no
later than March 1. Questions or concerns should be sent to: contact@socialpedagogy.org with the subject heading: Preston 2020/Inquiry.

We look very much forward to seeing you all again, and meeting our new pedagogues from around the world.
