Consulta Hemisferica Concept

Return to Consulta Hemisferca main page.

A "consulta" in Latin American movement terminology is an event featuring an exchange of ideas and perspectives on a specific topic or area. While it does not necessarily end in any specific action being decided upon, its purpose is to pave the way for future united activity.

The concept was developed to differentiate between other types of gatherings (congresses, conferences, meetings, etc.) and what the movement in various Latin American countries thought was called for: a session of exchange in which one brings one's thinking to offer to others while proceeding on the premise that the thinking of all others is as important and valid than one's own and that the only way real complete thinking can be derived is through collaboration that meshes the thinking of all.
