Champagnat Global has been invited to participate in the first meeting of Marist managers as an integrated network of Marist Brazil which took place from 6th to 9th March 2023, in the city of Curitiba.
Under the motto, “WEAVING THE MARIST MISSION: Valuing the memory, transforming the present and building the future”, the provinces of Brazil are joining forces to develop the Integrated Network of Basic Education of Marist Brazil: MARISTA BRASIL.
The network is made up of 96 socio-educational units and is being built in two phases of implementation: the first begins with the Marist Provinces of Brasil Centro-Sul and Brasil Sul-Amazônia and in the next stage is integrated with the Marist Province of Brasil Centro-Norte, which from the beginning has participated in the founding movements and in strategic decision-making.
The management of MARISTA BRASIL has considered it very important to feel part of the global process that the Institute is promoting as a Global family that walks together and, as a consequence, a very fruitful synergy is being generated between the two networks. In a disruptive historical context of radical changes, such as the one we are living in, the challenges have a global dimension and that implies being creative, innovative and above all collaborative.
Within the programme of the meeting there was a panel: “Internationalisation and Basic Education: positioning, connections and horizons”, in which Javier Llamas, project manager of Champagnat Global, Marília Morosine of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio del Sur (PUCRS) and Michelle Jordão of UMBRASIL, shared the importance of thinking about internationalisation for our children and young people and shed light on this subject which needs more and more space in Marist schools.
From Champagnat Global we would like to thank Marista Brasil for their strategic vision, their generosity and their commitment to walk together.
