Project Salesian Congregation International Congress, Preventive System and Human Rights
Date: 2-6 January 2009
Place: Rome, Salesianum
Province: Salesian provinces throughout the world, with the backing of the Youth Ministry Department, Rome

The main objectives of the Preventive System and Human Rights International Congress are:

  • Consciousness-raising for Salesians, those who work with them, to promote and increase their involvement in human rights education, as a privileged way forward for ordinary educational contexts - oratory, school, communities - for educating to citizenship in a Salesian way.

  • Cooperate in bringing Don Bosco’s Preventive System up to date, as a way of prevention, and for the recovery of young people, especially those at high risk, and for transforming society, by promoting human rights education as a language for the holistic education of the young today.

Target groups:

The Congregation, the Salesian Family and all educators, who will spread a greater awareness and practice of complete education and promotion of Human Rights, in particular children’s rights.
