Praxis 2008

Praxis, WSCF AP’s official publication, continues to be a viable tool of communicating the voices and concerns of young people in the SCMs and the issues that concerns their lives. Although the circulation is limited, about 500 copies worldwide, this is sent to school libraries, organization, teachers and member movements where possibilities of reproduction is high. Praxis is also sent online to a wide-range of readers, primarily to people who have access to internet.

Many of the articles in PRAXIS has been re-produced as materials for educational purposes in local activities and programs of SCMs and youth groups. Although the mode of communication and sharing of reading resources has drastically changed to internet-based, we hope to maintain the published PRAXIS to reach-out to wide audience that has no access to internet for various reasons.

In 2008, three issues of PRAXIS were published.
