Political Engagement. I have no clear definition for political engagement. I am always reflecting about which are the limits of what we can call the “political”. i tend to believe that the notion of “political engagement” is related to using our efforts, our power, in away that involves thinking about others and not only about ourselves. In other words, it is about thinking in others’ well-being. However, I also think that political engagement is related to our most basic everyday actions: for example, being respectful with everyone, saying hello and thank you, etc. I think that the small things, too, reflect the way in which we understand the world, the role we must play in it,and how we perceive ourselves within it.
