The fundamental idea in the education of the young is the fact that it is through the younger generations that society successively rebuilds itself; therefore, the primary concern of society is to teach the young. What does education consist of, and how does it take place? The Risk of Education explores what is at our origins as human beings. It presents the argument that without the fundamental factors of tradition something lived out in the present that proposes and gives its reasons and criticism asking yourself why? the young person is merely a fragile leaf separated from its branch.
 
Communion and Liberation (CL), is an international movement in the Catholic Church, founded by Monsignor Luigi Giussani in 1954. Its mission is the education of its members toward Christian maturity and cooperation with the mission of the Catholic Church in society today. In 1982, the Pontifical Council for the Laity recognized the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation as an association under Canon Law.
