This presentation will focus on the development of the virtual Latin American School for Young Social Action, a school with roots planted during the “Youth Formation for Youth Social Action in Latin America” Conference in Bolivia (January 21-26, 2007). The virtual school is a space for “live learning” that allows for the education of youth across seven Latin American countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela, and Uruguay), as per three basic principles:
•Community Leadership: An ethical leadership that, unlike individual leadership for the community, is not an imposed leadership, but one with the community that fosters collective processes.
•Social Action: Space to develop civic commitment among youth and involvement in the development of their communities, as well as in public policies.
•Latin American Identity: Space to recognize intercultural diversity and to construct a Latin American identity with a world vision starting from local identities.
Presenter, Coco Nunez, will provide an update on the process, results, and impacts of ethical values at the school from 2007 forward.
