The EduCity conference looks at the potential of neighbourhoods as spaces for social engagement. It will present ideas and tools to explore the neighbourhood as an active site for mutual learning, innovation and capacity building. EduCity has a multidisciplinary and inclusive ambition and is open to researchers, practitioners, educators, civil servants and engaged citizens active in processes of social inclusion and community empowerment. The objective is to connect and provide tools to organisations and individuals who share an interest in the potential of neighbourhoods as learning environments.
The conference is the final event of the EduCity Erasmus plus project and will present results and learnings of the project all along with papers connected with the topic, keynotes, workshops and field explorations. The conference is a cooperation between the Educity partnership, including Bond of Union (Palermo), Les Têtes de l’Art (Marseille), Ideas Factory (Sofia) und Zemos98 (Sevilla), Tesseræ (Berlin), and Zentral und Landesbibliothek Berlin (ZLB).
The conference is held at the America GedenkBibliothek, ZLB’s Kreuzberg branch, which is a public library oriented at empowering their communities by facilitating knowledge production.
