The Municipality of Vila do Bispo will celebrate the International Day of Educating Cities, marked on November 30, and the 30th anniversary of the proclamation of the Charter of European Cities, the itinerary of the cities that make up the International Association of Educating Cities (AICE).
To mark this edition, which has the motto “30 years of transforming people and cities for a better world”, the Cultural Center of Vila do Bispo receives, on November 30, an exhibition entitled “30 years of Educating Cities”.
In this show you will be able to appreciate 20 wooden hands decorated with the 20 principles of the Charter. It is a set of works, where each hand explains a principle, carried out by students of pre-school and 1st cycle of the municipality. The initiative aims to make known to the little ones the principles that guide this document and the respective association.
We recall that the Municipality of Vila do Bispo integrates, since September 2019, the AICE and, consequently, the Portuguese Territorial Network of Educating Cities (RTCE), which currently has 84 municipalities on the continent and autonomous regions that have signed the Charter Educating Cities. The Charter of Educating Cities is a unifying element in defining the policies of member municipalities, with educating cities working to make education the crosscutting axis of all local policies.
The exhibition can be visited from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 3:30 pm until January 7, 2021. Admission is free.
