Ciudad Escuela is an initiative that increases the awareness towards social participation in the design of the city.

This pedagogical project, developed in Spain, provides the citizenship with a series of tools that enable them to participate in the design and understanding of the city. The project tackles different aspects of the urban environment: communication among citizens, management, identity, infrastructures, etc.

Its website, apart from being interactive and very easy to use, is a sort of wiki on urban and social issues. As said above, one of the main goals of this initiative was to create a platform that allowed people to understand the complexity of the city. This is also a remarkable example of how to communicate complex urban theories in a simple and beautiful way. In this line, the website encourages society to meet in workshops and discuss how to self-manage the urban places collectively.
