The 24th Open Chairs Conference led by the Concordia Graduate School of Social Sciences begins next week. Through its columnist, El Heraldo spoke with Paola Bertucci, a student in the History Teaching Program, studying at this prestigious educational institution, and a member of the organization of these conferences, which year after year add supporters and prestige to their topics. Guest speakers addressed and proposed challenges, from public education, to our entire society.
In this regard, Paola Bertucci told us:
First of all, I have to highlight that we, together with a large team composed of authorities, professors and students, are collaboratively organizing the 24th Open Chairs Conference on Social Sciences. It should be noted that these events are held every year without interruption, with self-financing and with the help of the community.
We consider these days to be an enrichment for the entire community, as in the space of a week more than three hundred people come together to delve deeper, exchange and build proposals around the complex framework we call reality.
Modalities of work or exchange range from talks and discussions to workshops, through film debates, and live artistic productions, among other activities.
In addition, we have the academic contribution of writers, researchers, geographers, historians, political scientists and ecologists.
On this occasion, its focus is; “40 years of democracy, consolidation, achievements and challenges.” On this anniversary of four decades of democracy in Argentina, we renew our commitment to protecting freedoms and defending human rights.
In these 40 years, Argentines have regained the freedom to elect our representatives, an achievement worth celebrating, considering the difficulties we have overcome by leaving behind a violent and unjust past. From that moment on, we gave way to a period of peace, democracy, law, respect for republican values and the independence of authorities as enshrined in the National Constitution, which are maintained to this day.
Our country is a leader in defending human rights and civil liberties. Despite the great challenges that lie ahead, the strength we have will help us achieve our goals.
Democracy is the most important legacy that we must take care of, as it is the protection of freedoms, and the certainty that rulers must respond to the people with responsibility and commitment.
We believe that it is possible to build a better country with our ideas, our work and our hopes, from a collective perspective, of inclusion and respect for individual freedoms.
