The convention aims to stir reflection on the educative contribution of thousands of educators who in 150 years reached numerous young people in every region of Italy , offering them a formation that would prepare them for life and at the same time make them honest citizens and convinced Christians.

The experience, matured in many fields of formation, is attentive today as well to the expectations of the young in order to offer them the resources of an education that is considers the total person, capable of a positive insertion into society. The convention is addressed to the educating communities, to those who work in civil and ecclesiastical institutions with attention to education, to researchers and journalists, in the awareness that it is necessary to network in order to favor the interests of the young.
