Meeting some defined postulates involving the role and tasks of social
pedagogics operating in the perspective of economical transformations, the author
raises a fundamental problem of social pedagogics — organization of an educational
environment, in connection with one of the basic problems of the sociology
of tiie country and city — activation and development of a local community.
This is a kind of an image showing how a social environment is transformed into an environment upbringing through stimulating and developing the peoples
activity in an environment. In search for the methods of activity the author
reaches to sociology, strictly speaking to the methods of the community development;
she shows that the activity of the people can be used not only to acomplish
some narrowly conceived educational tasks, for children and the youth, but
it should be adopted to develop „the economical imagination” of the society and
the feeling of responsibility for the actual state of affairs, engagement into the
economical micro-, and macro-decisions.
Educational activity is not the only activity that forms an objective environment
of an individual — it is neccessary that this fact would be conceived
and taken into account by the pedagogues (both in their theoretical reflections and
in practice), so that the aims and methods of the educational environment organization
would be formulated efficiently and properly. The community development
is an example of such an efficient method of activity, a proposition for the pedagogues.
