ABOUT THE PROJECT
Urban Planning Laboratory is the newest project of Komunitas Association, as part of the alternative educational program named ”Urban Education”, addressed to teenagers, which has started five years ago. This educational programme was created by Komunitas Association members and has as a main objective the familiarization of young people with elementary notions of urban planning, urban anthropology and civic engamenet.
Over the course of six months, 14 workshops of Urban Education will be conducted in ”Technical College Ion Socolescu”, which will include urban walks and explorations, urban interventions made by students, creative workshops and exhibitions, based on Komunitas working methods, already piloted in recent years.
The project includes alternative education workshops based on elements of urban anthropology, architecture and participatory planning . At the end of the project, students will take the initiative and make interventions in the schoolyard, together with the project team, volunteers, parents and the school teachers.
This project is a natural continuation of „Something cool happens at my school!” initiative, implemented in 2013 in „Traian” technical College.
