“Mark Saey, CivicLab, stresses that more political education in schools is urgently needed. He proposes the concept of YouthCityHalls as the best way to achieve this. Since this forms the frame for the school(s), city services, citizens and civil society organizations, to on the one hand build a context for the use of general learning and on the other hand find a platform for more conviviality, solidarity and transition in the neighbourhood.
This idea we will take as our first theme for our network, organized within the project “Living together in diversity”. This aims to bring together welfare, education and youth-work with their different perspectives on youth and their context. To build a learning network for experts from these different fields in the Brussels area.”
