According to Fondazione Reggio Children, education is understood as a place of encounter, interaction and connections among the citizens of a community, and therefore a political place par excellence.
To this effect, pedagogical practice takes on a precise social and political connotation and plays a transformative and regenerative role for the whole community.
The projects promoted by Fondazione aim to support the idea of education as a public fact, which gathers around itself the co-responsibility of institutions, civil society and individuals, in a dimension of open debate, exchange and social management, as it happens in the educational experience of Reggio Emilia.
Within 3 years, the project P.A.C.E. aims to increase the quality of early childhood education systems in Palestine by promoting the activation of an integrated public-private system, the upgrading of school contexts and the opening of a creative reuse centre as a professional development place for teachers.
Abitare il Paese – La cultura della domanda
The project Abitare il Paese (Living the Country) promotes a culture of questions concerning the search for the meaning of the city through a territorial co-design path that involves children and young people from Italian schools, teachers and architects.
