Charter of Educating Cities

The cities that were represented at the 1st International Congress of Educating Cities, held in Barcelona in 1990, set forth in the initial Charter the basic principles that were to constitute the educational driving force of the city, theirs was the conviction that the edification of their inhabitants could not be left to chance. The Charter was revised at the 3rd International Congress (Bologna, 1994) and at the 8th International Congress (Genoa, 2004), in order to improve and adapt its concepts to the new challenges and social needs we face.

cartaThis Charter is based on the Universal Declaration on Human Rights (1948); the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1966); the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989); the World Declaration on Education For All (1990), and the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity (2001).
