“Socio-educational ecosystems and support in transitions: community strength”

Internationally speaking, inter-institutional and intersectoral collaboration for the improvement of educational success and social inclusion emerges as an innovative current. In some way, community development approaches are resignified to understand the city, the neighborhood or the municipality as an “eco-social” system. The map of actors present in a territory and the type of relationships kept provide the territory with a certain capacity for inclusion, a diversity of opportunities and they condition well-being. Ecosystems can articulate randomly or intentionally. Given that the research explains that the Social Capital -both individual and community one- is a determining factor in the paths for educational success. The paper displays the bases of the concept “socio-educational ecosystem” and, based on some research, points out that evidence that shows how the integral socio-educational action “in network” allows greater opportunities to young people. It concludes with an invitation to rethink socio-educational governance as a new way of building public policies focused on educational equity and social inclusion.
