Hirano, Tatiana Lotierzo; Giannecchini, Laura; Magalhaes, Giovanna Mode; Munhoz, Fabiola; Croso, Camilla
Current Issues in Comparative Education, v15 n2 p96-107 Spr 2013
In this article, we share the experience of the "Amplifying Voices" initiative. Held by the Latin American Campaign for the Right to Education (CLADE) within the scope of public policy advocacy, "Amplifying Voices" applies the principles of consultation and dialogue in youth and adult education communities, aiming at a stronger connection between expectations and decision making processes with regards to adult education policies. Over the past two years, this initiative has promoted listening and attentive dialogue in order to strengthen participation and affirm the importance of actors' voices in shaping policy and promoting social change.
