“Why do we go to Congress?
Congress is an opportunity to meet new people, new ideas, to re-visit our old knowledge. Congress means meeting, and I would add: to improve, to widen our mind and to experience our work at a much deeper level.
What is in it?
Congress has people interested in knowledge. There are many ideas, much creativity and self-realization. Education means to civilize human beings, to domesticate wild sources and to help one live in society.

Mental health is basic for the educator. It is essential to deal with our contemporary culture that drops excitation, speed and shallow levels of relationship with everything and everyone. Having an opportunity to discuss these issues is a real way of commitment with human race.”
