Participation and common good

According to Fondazione Reggio Children, it is a right of human beings to be socially represented, to be recognised, at any age, as constructors of culture, active subjects in the dynamics of social construction of the community.

Education, starting from school, has the task of building a learning community, able to create relationships with the territory, the environment, the culture and the beauty of the context in which the school lives and operates as a stakeholder of research and innovation.

The educational process, if participated, gives back to the community the possibility to redefine itself as a place of care, therefore an educational space where freedom, democracy, solidarity are practiced and the value of peace is promoted.

In this sense, education is understood as a common good and as the very identity of the community that knows how to take care of the new generations, the citizens not only of the future but also of the present.
