16th International Congress of Educating Cities

Katowice 2020

City of change as a space for creativity and innovation: Music, environment, leisure and participation

The next Congress of the International Association of Educating Cities will take place in Katowice (Poland) on 30 September – 2 October 2020.

We are pleased to send you a letter of invitation from Mayor of Katowice, Mr. Marcin Krupa, to the 16th International Congress of Educating Cities, which will take place in Katowice from 30 September to 2 October 2020, with the theme: “City of change as a space for creativity and innovation: Music, environment, leisure and participation”.

International Congresses are an important moment in the life of the Association and provide member cities with the opportunity to learn and exchange among them. The Scientific and Organising Committees are working to offer us an interesting programme that will allow us to gain an in-depth knowledge on the on-going transformation in our cities. Thus, an important part of the programme is dedicated to the exchange of experiences and know-how. In addition, we will have the opportunity to learn from Katowice through study visits to local good practices.

We call for innovative proposals from member cities related to the following Congress’ sub-themes:

  • Education for sustainability and a green environment
  • Leisure: fostering healthy life-styles and quality of life
  • Music and other arts

Active participation at the Congress can either be by sumitting “Experiences for Discussion” or at “Speakers’ Corners”. Additional information on the Congress sub-themes and the presentation options is available at the attached documents.

The deadline for the submission of proposals for both modalities is 6 of February.

Proposals must be written  in one of the 3 official languages: English, Spanish or French, and must be submitted via online form available here.

Registration will open soon, with the following participation fees:
