The Council for Cultural Cooperation is intended to promote interaction among European nations and to initiate cooperation in remodeling educational systems. At a 1974 Brussels conference, participants discussed the moral obligation of European governments to promote sociocultural community development directed toward a greater measure of compassion, equality of opportunity, and true democracy. Hoping to replace complacency and frustration with participation and self-realization, participants encouraged teachers and other social agents to inject their communities with a sense of animation and community consciousness. This policy requires radical reforms in education, political institutions, and cultural patterns, and these changes are unlikely to occur without the assistance and provocation of a group of agents trained in the art of social reform. This document is a collection of 10 essays which describe the need for change, cite examples of successful reforms, and make proposals for the future. (EMH)
