A theme for dialogue

Based on the theme “Youth in the Marist DNA: the culture of encounter with contemporary generations through dialogue with the Youth Observatories”, the event aims to share good practices existing in the Youth Observatories of the Marist HEIs, to deepen the theme of Youth inspired by the research conducted by the Research areas of the Universities, to propose strategies for joint action and to share actions between the HEIs.

Manuir Mentges, President of the Marist International Network of IHE, and a representative of the General House of the Marist Institute. In the follow-up, the programme will include the participation of Prof. Dr. Roberto Rafael Dias da Silva, from the Universidade do Vale dos Sinos (UNISINOS). He will give the lecture “The culture of encounter with the young university generations in the current scenarios”.

In the second part of the event, cases of action with young people in Mexico and the work developed by the Youth Observatories of the PUCRS and the PUCPR will be presented. At the end of the event, there will be a time for discussion to join in the sharing of ideas and challenges resulting from the event.
