Walking, next to a creative process and an artistic form can be a base for pedagogy. A pedagogy that is lived, contextual, personal, creative, integral and embodied. Walking can develop pedagogical methods that may be applied to diverse groups.. The paradigms that are presented show the emancipatory potential of walking and its educational possibilities. Students are connected to the environment, with their colleagues, with the social environment that surrounds them. Walking stands for change and movement: walking pedagogy stands for shifting perspectives, challenges, and transformation.
The experience of walking as an educational method and the knowledge that derives as an outcome is empowering the individual in a very characteristic way.

Speakers are Anna Luyten (Belgium), Dioni Lampiri (Greece), Ellie Berry (IRE), Sotirios Chtouris and Anna Micheli (Greece), Natacha Moutinho and Miguel Bandeira Duarte (Portugal), moderated by Julie Poitras Santos (US).
