Popular Education in Solidarity Economy
de Melo Neto, José Francisco; da Costa, Francisco Xavier Pereira
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v34 n1 p47-58 2015
This article seeks to show the relation between popular education and solidarity economy in experiences of solidarity economy enterprises in Brazil. It is based on diverse experiences which have occurred in various sectors of this economy, highlighting those experiences which took place in João Pessoa with the creation of a Cooperative of Workers in Party Services (Copy Buffet), in the district of Valentina, and in the town of Catende, when workers took control of a sugar mill for 15 years, in addition to more than five years of experience in an Incubator of Solidarity Enterprises. It employed a research methodology oriented by the inductive method to investigate the theoretical descriptive dimensions of popular education and of solidarity economy, after consulting the relevant bibliography on the issue. As a result, it was possible to emphasize the dimensions common to all these practices, such as culture, work, the "popular" centred on a pedagogy for the promotion of the other, in addition to ethical values, such as dialogue, solidarity, justice and equality. Popular education in tune with solidarity economy.
