The 3 Pillar Group launched its Charter for Community Education on April 28th. This group is made up of community educators, advocates, and academics. Their mission is to work from an approach to community education that is participative, democratic, consciousness-raising, and hands-on.
The Charter is the work of community educators who are members of AONTAS Community Education Network (CEN) or Community Education Facilitators Association (CEFA) who came together to affirm the principles and values that underpin community education.
Our hope is that community education providers will sign up to this charter and display it proudly for all to see. If you would like a virtual or hard copy, please contact us and we will arrange for it to be sent to you.
The launch took place at the Reasserting the Politics of Community Education which was the first of three webinars linked to the Charter and more information can be found here
