book cover 'Edu-city'

This handbook is a result of the Erasmus plus project EduCity. It is directed at practitioners, educators, civil servants and engaged citizens who are active in processes of social inclusion and community empowerment in urban contexts. It aims at providing ideas and tools to exploit the neighbourhood as an active site for mutual learning, innovation and capacity building.

The handbook supports the training of new and strongly required hybrid professional figures acting as neighbourhood facilitators for processes of social engagement, co-creation and management of commons. In it you find the results of pooling ideas and methods for social engagement and co-creation deriving from the background of the five organisations partnering in the  Erasmus+ project. They draw on expertise and practical experience in education, urbanism, social work, participatory practice, art and design through different European countries.
