Participação

Vivemos tempos em que os cidadãos solicitam uma participação mais direta nas decisões que os afetam, pedem para serem ouvidos e que a sua voz seja levada em conta. Por isso, os desafios que as cidades enfrentam são problemas complexos que requerem cooperação e inteligência coletiva para os enfrentar. Por essa razão, é necessário abrir processos de tomada de decisão, a nível municipal, aos cidadãos e avançar em direção a um modelo mais deliberativo de democracia. Por outro lado, através da participação cidadã, o compromisso cívico e a responsabilidade se regeneram e o sentimento de pertença à cidade é reforçado.

Formar uma cidadania ativa, crítica e corresponsável é primordial para as cidades educadoras. Daí o compromisso com uma educação de valor e formação que promova o associativismo e a participação cidadã na construção da cidade (princípios 9 e 18 da Carta das Cidades Educadoras).
