What's New-Official letter for the cancellation of the Ridef 2020

“We are not alone” C. Freinet

Greeting to all,

Due to the exceptional circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the RIDEF Organizing Committee has officially decided to cancel the Rencontre Internationale des Éducateurs Freinet. (Ridef 2020)  This decision, after five years of collaboration and hard work, was not an easy one.  However, it was inevitable considering the evolution of the measures being taken and recommendations made by the WHO and governmental authorities.   

This year’s RIDEF meeting will not be carried forward to 2021.  This is due to economic instability, both local and world-wide. Also, other organizations and associations already have events planned for 2021 and RIDEF 2022 is scheduled to go forth in Morocco.

Currently, the RIDEF organizing committee is working to terminate the 2020 meeting and refund our participants.  We will keep you up to date with developments via the RIDEF website and Facebook page.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has lent a hand throughout this wonderful  project, both at the local and international levels.

On a final note, we encourage you to take care of yourselves and your loved ones.  As Freneit himself said in 1924, “We are not alone”.
