The Educating City is an Inclusive City
1,100 representatives of 188 cities and 34 countries have participated in the 13th International Congress of Educating Cities “An Educating City is an Inclusive City” held in Barcelona.
The Congress theme “An Educating City is an inclusive city” was structured through the following axes:
Inclusion as a right. The city as a promoter of welfare and life opportunities.
Citizen participation and commitment. The city as a space for coexistence, dialogue and relationships.
The city as a space for innovation and creative thinking.
Through conferences, presentation of good practices, mayor and academy roundtables and study visits, attention was given to the role of education -understood in a broad sense- as an essential instrument for personal and collective development, and the improvement of co-existence and solidarity. Indeed, we celebrated the 20 anniversary of the Association.
