Abstract

At this moment, where we are navigating uncertainties, educators have become responsible for teaching about what is not yet known. Pre-established knowledge is being deconstructed and new social values are emerging. Within this scenario, our methodological proposal is to connect the principles of social entrepreneurship to the practice of collaborative transformative learning. The goal is to promote inclusive citizenship and contextualised knowledge. This will allow students to become the protagonists of transformative processes of their realities – the object of study in the classroom. Thus, we link in this paper discipline and local knowledge, discussing exercising critical thinking, creativity, innovation, flexibility and solidarity based on real-life issues.
