In October we celebrated Social Educators Day all over the world. I’ve been asked why the second of October is our international day. The answer is that this day was free – in the meaning that a lot of days already were occupied in the international calendar. But in some countries the second of October has a special meaning connected to national history, I’ve been told.
As mentioned in the last Newsletter workplaces in different parts of Denmark were open to the public the second of October – to talk about the work of social educators and about vulnerable groups and their needs. Local politicians were invited – because in November we’ll have Local Election and we ask the politicians to focus on the working field of social educators. If you have tellings about activities in other places of the world please feel free to write.
