Barcelona: European Regional Meeting of the Global Platform for the Right to the City

April 2, 2016

All Day

On April 2nd and 3rd 2016, various organizations and local governments that advocate for the right to the city will hold the European Regional Meeting of the Global Platform for the Right to the City. This event will be held just before Habitat III’s Thematic Meeting on Public Spaces, an event organized by the Barcelona City Hall, which is part of the Habitat III (HIII) official process.

HIII will be the third UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, which is held every 20 years; HIII will take place in Quito, Ecuador, on October 2016.Next During the recent Habitat III preparatory meeting in Prague, the GPR2C strongly called for the inclusion of the right to the city in the New Urban Agenda that will  emergefrom Habitat III. The GPR2C also call for the commitment of all involved stakeholders to the effective implementation of the R2C. Additionally, the participation of civil society and local governments in this process is essential to achieve cities in which human rights are fulfilled.

The GPR2C also calls for the right to the city to be protected, promoted and implemented in all Habitat III official documents, and advocates for inclusive  and free of discrimination cities, cities committed to political participation, with quality public space and cultural diversity. The Global Platform for the Right to the City is an international network that gathers many organizations from America, Africa, Asia and Europe, including social movements, NGOs, networks and forums, academic institutions, public sector, foundations and international organizations. The GPR2C was created in 2014 in order to advocate for the right to just, democratic and sustainable cities.

Rising from Trauma and Crisis with Co‑operative Education

Online meeting

We live in a time of multiple crises caused by capitalism, colonialism, patriarchy, racism, environmental destruction, individualism, inequality and fascism.

Violence, suffering and trauma are universal. We know co-operation, co-operative behaviour, values and models can restore life, hope and ways of living, but we don’t necessarily have the skills, courage and know-how to transform ourselves in communities and with society.  

How can post-compulsory education help develop our capacity and competencies for co-operation and for renewal?
