There will be simultaneous translation Languages of the Symposiumon Spanish- English-Spanish
We expect two representatives from each professional association in Europe will attend this meeting. Participation in the Symposium is by invitation only. The European Bureau of AIEJI aims to have different elements from all European countries so that the agreements and arguments can have the greatest possible representation and involvement.
We refer to professional associations as those organisations that represent the collective of Social Educators in their countries. Those that have stated by their by-laws to work towards the promotion and organisation of the profession in their respective countries, with the purpose of improving the quality of service provision to people with whom educators work.
It is preferable that professional association participates in research about common training principles by filling a excel sheet with universities or centres and scientific areas.
So far we present the relation of Professional Associations of Social Educators we know and have invited, we will be very glad to know of any other existing entities:

Here are two announcements from Dr. Lorenzo Lucarelli from Spain:
As president of the Spanish Association for the equine mediated education and activities, I have the honor to present you the new project Erasmus+ in which our organization is involved.
It is a call for papers addressed to all those organizations who work or wish to work with the animal mediation (specially horses mediation) in social education activities.
The coordinator of the project will be HRDF, the Hungarian federation of Riding for the disable, linked with the International Children Safety Service, ICSS. Other participants are France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Norway, Netherlands, Belgium, and possibly also Slovakia.
The goal of the project is to set up a students exchange network across Europe and worldwide, in the field of the animal mediated education and therapies, since we know that practicing with animals is very good for social education students for it enable them to communicate non verbally without any kind of violence. This skill is very important in Social education as well as in other fields.
We are looking not only for full partners participating in the project but also for silent partners who would be beneficiaries of the project and help us in the dissemination of results.
If you wish to receive more information about the project you may write an email to me at email@example.com or at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can write to the president of HRDF, Peter Edvi, at email@example.com or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much for your kind attention, replies and comments
