Inclusão social

Num mundo onde as desigualdades sociais, económicas e de oportunidades entre os diversos setores da população tendem a agudizar-se, é necessária uma aposta firme e decidida no reforço de mecanismos que promovam o bem-estar e a proteção social dos coletivos mais vulneráveis.

É imperativo apurar, em primeiro lugar, quais são os mecanismos de exclusão e de marginalização que afetam as cidades. As cidades educadoras avançam na construção de cidades mais inclusivas desde uma abordagem integral, apostando na educação como motor de desenvolvimento pessoal e coletivo e de melhoria da convivência e da coesão social.

Princípios da Carta: 1, 2, 14, 15, 16 e 17.
