ABOUT THE PROJECT
The National Conference of Urban Education was held on the 9-10 of December 2011 in Bucharest, at the University of Architecture and Urbanism „Ion Mincu”, organized by Komunitas with the help of the Association for Urban Transition(ATU).
This conference represented the release of an innovating concept, that will be at the base of an optional discipline for high school students and marked a key moment in the long term strategy of Komunitas Association; the strategy promotes urban education as a mix of different elements from many other disciplines like: urban anthropology, visual education, urban planning, urban activism.
After days and nights of working to organize the event, after months of writing and rewriting, we launched during the first day of the Conference the Urban Education Guide, a type of publication that appeared for the first time in Romania. Using this Guide, we will develop the future Handbook for Urban Education for high school students. The guide was given for free to all attending the Conference. The Guide can be found here, but for the moment, we only have the Romanian version of it: http://issuu.com/marius_huza/docs/ghidul_de_educatie_urbana
