Workshop on Values and Responsibilities
Associated Central Topics:
Education and responsibility .
Environment and responsibility .
A tool to discuss on values, to assume responsibilities and to act locally
This methodological tool for debates can be very useful to help groups identifying local issues and define the values that are behind political interests that can impact on specific social groups and communities, with social and environmental consequences. It can help a group to find out who are responsible for creating such problems and who are the responsible for solutions.
It can be used by any group in local communities, schools, companies, with educators, adults, youth and children.
Best duration of the workshop: 4 hours.
This workshop can go further with a second stage on the elaboration of a collective social, political and environmental project in a school or a community.
This methodology was applied with groups of teachers and students (altogether) in the coastal and historical city of Paraty - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil (May 2009). It resulted in the organization of Conferences Let’s Take Care of Brazil in 3 schools with the writing of the charter of responsibilities and the creation of a Blog “Let’s Take care of Paraty”.
