Actors

SCHOOLS AND PARTICIPANTS

The project’s participants are generally schools and particularly youngsters between 11 and 16 years old. More than 6000 youngsters from more than 150 schools have already taken part.

TEAMS

This European project is only possible through the involvement and engagement of all its actors; it is a work of teams that depend on each other and interact on different scales.

CITIES AND PUBLIC SPACES

The project converts the history of places into sources of questioning and educational platforms to create dialogues and debates around contemporary issues of living together.

THES BEITS

These demountable wooden modules, called Beits, create a space for study and concentration in the heart of the urban space; one of the innovations of the project.

PARTNERS AND SUPPORTS

The project would not be possible without the participation of local, European or international partners and supports. The trust they place in the project is essential to us.

THE HISTORY OF THE PROJECT

The project was born following a study led by the architect David Stoleru on the potential of the urban space and particularly the sites of historical heritage.
