      Dear colleague:

      Humanity is nowadays facing the challenges put up by development. It
      happens in a context where a lot of social and economic differences
      among countries exist as a result of the new order imposed to the
      world. There are still millions of illiterate people with no
      possibility of access to an equal and quality education. Before this
      challenge, it is the roll of education to take the strategic and
      privileged roll of making the necessary changes that should take
      place.

      The Cuban Ministry of Education and prestigious international
      organizations related to education are pleased to announce Pedagog¨ªa
      2005 Congress in its ninth edition with the usual saying: ¡§A meeting
      for educators unity¡§ holding, for the first time, the 1st Literacy
      World Congress. Both events will take place simultaneously from
      January 31st to February 4th, 2005 at the Havana International
      Conference Center, Havana City, Cuba.

      This new meeting of Pedagog¨ªa 2005 Congress forces us to achieve a
      higher attendance of specialists and teachers so that, in this
      exceptional moment, the reflection and debate on the themes to be
      analyzed can arise . At the same time, it will be the right moment
      for the interchange on knowledge and experiences on educational
      matters. It will also allow teachers analyze strategies and
      alternatives with a more integrating and cooperative point of view.

      On the other hand, the 1st Literacy World Congress offers the
      opportunity of interchanging the experiences achieved on the literacy
      and post-literacy process in the mother tongue and in the vehicle
      language, fostering methodological alternatives for training teachers
      to form specialists on literacy and post-literacy projects,
      substantiating the importance of the usage of radio, television and
      VHS video on literacy and post-literacy projects and, at the same
      time, show the Cuban experience on the field. The meeting will be an
      excellent means to foster regional cooperation among institutions and
      organizations of Young and Adult Education.

      Because of the importance of both meetings we hope to have you among
      the attendance. We count on the fact that your attendance and active
      participation will surely contribute to its success.

      Cordially,

      Dr. Luis I. G¨®mez Guti¨¦rrez
