A Collective Applause to the “Youth in Focus” on the occasion of the International Day of the Educating City in Almada.
On November 30, the City Council of Almada celebrated the International Day of the Educating City.
The member cities of Portugal celebrated the day with a collective applause scheduled at the same time, dedicated to an audience chosen by each city. Almada dedicated the day to the “Youth in Focus” and commemorated two decades since joining the Association.
To complete the program of the day, the city hosted the exhibition of the Educating City and the exhibition / opening of the book “Youth in Focus 2016/2017”, young people who have stood out at national and international level in the fields of Knowledge (human and scientific), Culture and Sport, and that have distinguished themselves by their dedication, talent and determination. These values should serve as an example since they embody a collective effort of peers, teachers, coaches and friends and family, who make a difference by accompanying, guiding, encouraging and believing in young people.
On this day, we highlight the campaign #yeseducatingcity with which Almada aims to expand the knowledge and debate around the Charter of Educating Cities and the relevance of institutions of education, training and continuing education in an educating city. This debate will culminate in the construction of a City Mosaic which will be presented at the next edition of the International Day of the Educating City in Almada.
