How civic education programs held by Civil Society Organisations can contribute to social change? Comparing experiences between Morocco, France, Turkey and Slovenia”
Informal education is a process that aims at the emancipation of individuals and communities, as well as the social transformation. Jean-Pierre Nossent, a Belgian education specialist, said that informal (popular) education is "a cultural practice of resistance". In Morocco, my organization Racines develops several programmes of popular education using arts (theatre in the public space, comics, video, music, documentary...) to promote values of citizenship, democracy, freedom, accountability, social justice, equity, etc. Through my research within trans-making project, I wish to explore other approaches of informal education, mostly those held by civil society organizations, but not only. It also aims to investigate how the public institutions are involved, how they support CSO and contribute to their work.
