International Symposium School and Library –partners for the permanent education Targoviste 2012

Theme: initiating a dialogue between generations and making various age groups aware of the necessity to develop learning skills all along their life for personal and social success.


“Following us in a rush ,not long ago a child ,not long ago a teenager ,suddenly the old age has reached us from behind” (Marcus Tittus Cicero)

“Give a man a fish and you will feed him a day,teach him how to fish and you will feed him for a whole life!”(African proverb)

In a speed era ,one of unpreceding progress ,man seems to forget that his present actually represents the future of his children ,of the next generations , mistaking the verb “to be” for “to have”,he estranges from himself ,from the environment and other people.

Trusting the invincible technology ,he has surprisingly learnt of the economic and ecological crises that the industrial development can bring along risks that it does not make the planet more powerful,on the contrary , this becomes more fragile because it leads to injustices that can raise philosophical and ethical questions.

This is how a new concept appears :the lasting(durable) development , term first used in 1992 at the Conference about environment and development from Rio de Janeiro.

If initially the concept referred to the problems of the relationship between man and environment ,today the new paradigm of the concept refers to life in its complexity.

It is necessary to form a solidary attitude between generations at all levels ,a human being ho should know to be in the world ,and live in harmony with the environment ,with the others ,with himself.To achieve this harmony , it requires a long process of formation in which man becomes receptive to changes ,capable of anticipating them,understanding the reality and interpreting it,finding new senses and valuating it .

What does school do to form such a man?This is the theme of reflection of the present symposium,especially this year,considered to be The European year of green age and dialogue between generations.

The finality of the primary ,middle,(high)secondary and university education must be open to continuos learning ,toward self-education. Continuing the education provided by school ,the library is the first institution which helps the process of learning because it represents a familiar space, facilitating the transition to another type of learning ,a factor of continuity in time and space.Its multi-disciplinary character represents a catalytic factor in obtaining and sorting the information ,constituting at the same time a fair space in which several generations can meet and hold a dialogue.

The changes are part of everyday life of each of us and they are getting more and more frequent and various :we change our workplace ,the country ,friends ,the social and professional status and of course ,the age.So that the future adult could cope with them,school must prepare the present pupil to respond positively to any change.

The learning does not end when leaving school ,not even when retiring.

GOAL –Promoting the permanent education as a pillar of a durable development,the only one capable of ensuring a fair life;valuating the library as space of permanent learning.
