ONCITY: NETWORKS OF LIGHT TO INHABIT THE WORLD

The three-day event organised by the Umanità Nuova Movement, Youth for a United World and AMU will start in Castel Gandolfo (Rome) on Friday 1st April.

The OnCity conference, an “international workshop on citizenship for the common good” will be divided into three major themes: city in dialogue, city in action, networked city.

The topics are widely extensive and sweep a variety of different visions, approaches and perspectives; however, an element universally recognized from the start is undoubtedly the need to educate and to be educated to the concept of active citizenship.

AMU’s detached teacher for development education projects, Cecilia Landucci, writes on AMU News n. 1/2016: “Nowadays educating the community to active, responsible and united citizenship means … to face the challenge of pacifying the right to global citizenship with the local citizenship, sharing the heritage of human values which make a person: relationship, social bond, participation, freedom, work, responsibility, cooperation, mutual respect, solidarity, fraternity.”

In the same article Elena Peace, teacher, tells us how citizenship education can constructively be present in everyday teaching.

For those who want to deepen and “enter” in the conference issues, a preview of the full article (Italian only) can be downloaded at this link >>>
