ONCITY: CITY IN DIALOGUE, CITY IN ACTION, NETWORKED CITY

The conference “Oncity: networks of light to inhabit the world”, an international workshop on citizenship for the common good, has ended today in Castel Gandolfo (Rome).

In three days of workshop there were a variety of experts’ interventions, testimonials and group work. About 900 people from over 30 countries on five continents attended, with a very large and significant presence of young people.

OnCity is organised by the Umanità Nuova Movement, Youth for a United World, New Humanity NGO and AMU: all organizations that are deeply rooted in the Focolare Movement, committed to the building of a united and fraternal world between individuals, communities and peoples.

The workshop was developed around three major issues related to the city, used as a metaphor for any human coexistence: city in dialogue, city in action, networked city. Nearly 50 interventions covered a vast amount of different topics with a multiplicity of visions, approaches! The conference showed, however, a unifying element: the need to educate and to be educated to the concept of active citizenship, in the ways required by the various contexts. In this sense the group work have given everyone the chance to creatively prove themselves in 32 different laboratories!
