Transforming society from various theories and actions
We call contributions that reflect and act from hybrid places, that is, that have characteristics of different theoretical, conceptual or methodological natures in relation to Engineering, Social Justice and Peace. A tribute is made to the work of two Latin Americans: Paulo Freire (Brazilian pedagogue and activist) and Orlando Fals Borda (Colombian sociologist and activist); from his efforts to create a situated and contextualized praxis in a critical education.
To nurture their reflections, perspectives are included where the dialogue of knowledge that gives way to conversation, co-construction, conscience, decoloniality and respect for the knowledge of the other are highlighted. In this way, thinking about hybrid praxis invites us to create, from different places and with different social groups and individuals, transformations in reality in whose settings technology is nurtured by social dynamics and society is transformed by technology in a relationship bidirectional. In particular, Colombia is an exploration scenario for Engineering, Social Justice and Peace, especially after the signing of the agreement between the Government and the FARC-EP in 2016 and the multiple threats to its compliance and implementation.

It is proposed to recognize community-based initiatives related to the role of technology for social justice. This recognition will be made in memory of assassinated engineers exercising their work in territories where the armed and social conflict is still latent. In a first event, on October 31, 2019 during topographic tasks in the municipality of Corinto (Cauca - Colombia). Their names are: Carlos Mario López, Roosevelt Saavedra, Diego Alejandro Cerquera Picón and Diego Hernán Rodríguez; and in a second event, on December 7, 2019 developing telecommunications activities in the municipality of Paz (Cauca - Colombia). Their names are Óscar Eduardo Fajardo Muelas and Daniel Quiñónez Orobio.
It is expected to give visibility to community processes at the national and international level. It is expected that this will take place annually within the framework of the international conferences of the ESJP Network in conjunction with the Colombian Network of Engineering and Social Development.
