Abstract

The educational relationship, being humanly determined, it is a privileged tool of doing education because it received the difference and recognizes the limit of the individual in the wealth of the other by himself over a time, not too short but not too long, identifying as useful and fundamental, not only to promote the intentional and global growth of educating, but also fostering mutual involvement within the community. This paper, through pedagogical reflection, aims to investigate the new solidarity practices that are developing - or that may in the immediate future manifest itself - in the community affected by the coronavirus emergency. The sense of citizenship, in a similar context, tends to change by transforming and adapting to the sociocultural changes that characterize the evolution of the community. Not just a health issue, so, but a problem of immediate educational interest that embraces diversity and more authentic human relationships. Education, an essential element in the definition of citizenship, referring to man, can’t ignore the analysis of thought and actions, theory and practices, society and individual, that is, all micro and macrocosm. This applies to any social status that concerns man: Spinoza and Leibniz, for example, are exemplary, in the interpretation of the individual as a way of being of the substance, or in the necessary postulation of a predetermined harmony as a condition for agreement in and of the different. Acceptance of transformations as an essence for the redefinition of citizenship and for openness, by the educational sciences, to a reform also political in the social, they represent some of the elements behind a social democracy that aims at welfare, the policies of welfare state declined on the citizen. Social and educational emergencies, the demand for dignity and new ideas of well-being aim to redefine the status of the modern citizen within a community, today characterized by the changes imposed by the dissemination of Covid-19.
