Living as citizens in our territory
Living as citizens in our territory: the city is here seen as an educational subject that proposes itineraries of self-education for new generations through its own socio-architectural structure. The role of adult educators is to feed the curiosity of the young people discovering the territory. From knowing about the territory, we move to the building of itineraries of active and attentive participation as to the management of one’s own city. The territory thus becomes an open air laboratory, available to all. Through the educational relationships between young people and adults it is therefore possible to criss-cross itineraries of one’s own potential.
