Sinopsis

This book brings together authors from different continents who, based on their experience in service-learning, take a historical look at the roots, particularities and growth of this practice. In its pages you will find the evolution it has undergone since the first experiences of social engagement in Latin America and the Caribbean, the rich and varied processes experienced in European countries, the strong growth of service-learning in Asia and Africa in recent years, and the well-established tradition that has developed in the United States and Canada.

‌Beyond the diversity and the “local color”; provided by particular nuances, readers will find that there are common characteristics which underpin the commitment of those developing service-learning projects today.
