The City for the Education

“The air of the city makes us free”, a phrase that could be read in the walls of the first European cities. Back then and still today this case emerges where urban life allows people to establish solid relations amongst themselves by working together within projects based upon justice, parity and democracy.
All cities possess significant educational potentials. People who live in urban centers can (and often do) obtain great knowledge in many areas, often linked to the exercise of their social, civic, political, cultural and economic rights. Within cities, people have the potential to learn to participate socially and exercise their citizenship.
People can learn to live with others to work for, not only the present, but also a more equitable and gentle future, with a sense of self-respect, respect for others and the environment that surrounds them. This is the potential that our cities comprise; particularly within public spaces, in which people build mechanisms to resolve issues that are relevant to everyone.
