Congress Information

An Educating City is an Inclusive City

Barcelona will be playing host to the 13th International Congress of Educating Cities in 2014, to mark the 20th anniversary of the Association's founding in Barcelona, where the presidency has been held ever since.

Knowledge and education are the foundations to development and social inclusion in our society. That is why the local authority, as strategic-territorial goal leader, takes a broad view of education, beyond school and based on the idea of an educating city, where education becomes a tool for, a driving force to and an influence on personal and collective development, social inclusion and greater community coexistence and solidarity. Hence the theme of the congress: The Educating City is an Inclusive City.
