Chaire UNESCO en démocratie, citoyenneté mondiale et éducation transformatoire
International Conference Paulo Freire
The UNESCO Chair DCMÉT is pleased to support this important, and transformative, conference related to Paulo Freire's legacy and emancipatory ideas.
The 3rd International Conference Paulo Freire: The Global Legacy, celebrating the world-renowned Brazilian educator, philosopher, social justice advocate, and one of the most pre-eminent educators of the 20th century during the centenary of his birth, will bring together educators, academics, students, researchers, and practitioners to reflect on the current status of his pedagogical thought and its application across a wide variety of academic disciplines. Therefore, the conference goals are (1) to investigate the current standing of Paulo Freire’s thought and work within the field of Education, (2) to explore the extent of Paulo Freire's thought and work applied in other fields of human inquiry, expression and practice, and (3) to be a catalyst for further international interdisciplinary application of Paulo Freire’s thought and work. The 3rd International Conference Paulo Freire: The Global Legacy builds upon the tradition established by the first International Conference Paulo Freire: The Global Legacy, held in Aotearoa / New Zealand (Kirikiriroa / Hamilton) in 2012, and the 2nd International Conference Paulo Freire: The Global Legacy, held in Brazil (Belo Horizonte) in 2018.
