Education and critical citizenship

The close collaboration between the NGO and the different actors of the Free University of Brussels (students, professors, faculties, etc) fosters the exchange of knowledge.

The appropriation of knowledge is essential to activate the process of change in society. It provides tools to develop a critical approach and contribute to the construction of a solid and innovative society. This appropriation of knowledge makes sense when it is carried out at different levels, both in the North and the South. It concerns individuals, civil society organizations, public and private institutions.

This process of appropriation of knowledge takes place both in the North and the South at an individual, organizational, and institutional level.
