My name is Wojciech Lasota, I am the chairman of the Korczak Foundation in Poland korczakowska.pl.
The foundation was established to propagate the work of Janusz Korczak, a Jewish-Polish educator. Before he was murdered during the Second World War, he had set up a unique way of working with children. Based on an assumption that, he built a set of institutions which aim was to enhance children agency.
We would like to invite you to take part in a project "Janusz Korczak in Europe Old and New", financed by the Erasmus+ program korczakowska.pl and Jewish Community in Warsaw. In course of the project we are going to have several lectures and workshops in three European cities : Berlin, Paris and London. During these activities we want make its participants familiar with the legacy of Janusz Korczak. For in our deep conviction, his work is still relevant after seventy years from his dead. We were in London last time : www.polishculture.org.uk.
Our activities will conduct in English, however materials and presentations will translated into French.
Our main partner in France is Association Française Janusz Korczak (korczak.fr), but we are still looking for possible English-speaking partners and participants of our project.
Our target groups are :
a) people who work with children : teachers, educators, NGO workers ;
b) people who work with adults, especially with excluded people (older, handicapped, refugees and immigrants...) : teachers, social workers, psychologists ;
c) people who are interested in Janusz Korczak.
We would be happy, if you would interested in working with us on the project.
