Marist Mission: international challenges and perspectives in the publishing sector



International Meeting of Marist Publishing Houses

01/06/2011: General House

The Marist Publishing Houses are invited by the Mission Bureau to a meeting in São Paulo (Brasil), from 2 to 4 November 2011. The programme is being prepared by an Organizing Committee consisting of Br. João Carlos do Prado (Mission Bureau), Br. Délcio Afonso Balestrin (Editorial FTD), Br. Valdícer Civa Fachi (UMBRASIL), Mrs Ceciliany Alves Feitosa (Editorial FTD), Mr. Antônio Rios (Editorial FTD), Mrs Mércia Procópio (UMBRASIL) and Mr. Décio Andrasi (Editorial FTD)

The following Publishing Houses have been invited to the meeting: « Editorial Edelvives » (Spain), « Editorial Progreso » (Mexico), « Gram Editora » (Argentina), « Editorial Champagnat » (Curitiba, Brasil), « EDIPUCRS », Porto Alegre (Brasil) and « Editorial FTD S.A. » São Paulo (Brasil).

The principal objective of the meeting is to encourage integration, combined operation and co-operation among the Marist Publishing Houses in view of reinforcing the mission of the Institute in the publishing sector.

The specific objectives are: to survey the panorama of the international publishing market; to become acquainted with the organisation,  structure, products, good practices and challenges of the Publishing Houses; to draw up proposals of co-operation for work on the network of the Publishing Houses of the Marist Institute within the publishing market.

The production of teaching resources for education in part of the Institute has been very significant from the beginning. The Publishing Houses remain always present in the  service of education with major contributions. The extreme importance of education has prompted the Mission Bureau to encourage the search for greater mutual familiarity among the Publishing Houses, in order to contribute to the common location of topics of interest, exchange, and co-operation.
