Posted: May 17, 2023

Social Pedagogy Development Network Mini-event

Date: Thursday 8th June 2023
Time: 9.30 – 12:30
Location: Paisley
Cost: Free to attend

We warmly invite you to join our newly reimagined in-person Social Pedagogy Development Network mini-events. This year, instead of organising one large central event, SPDN are holding several small events, all happening at the same time and in various locations, all inter-connected via video link and social media.

We are delighted to tell you that Kibble will be hosting one of these events in Paisley and we hope that you will be able to attend.

About the Event

From its very first meeting in November 2009, the Social Pedagogy Development Network (SPDN) has explored what social pedagogy could mean within a UK context and how different concepts and traditions of social pedagogy could be translated, discovered and connected. No matter how often participants have been to SPDN events or how much expertise they already bring with them, we want the SPDN to be a welcoming and inclusive forum that creates learning opportunities for everybody.

The plans for the mini-SPDN events are, using theory and creative activities, to focus on how we can recognise children’s inherent resourcefulness and potential. We’ll build on Rutger Bregman’s Humankind: A Hopeful History to show that we’ve got good reason to see human nature in much more positive terms, and to enable participants to think about and discuss how they can bring out children’s inherent richness and help wider society recognise this too.
