On Friday July 11th, under the title "The city isn't for sale it's for living" the Trobada d'Arquitectures Col.lectives will spend the day at Can Masdeu.
Arquitectures Col.lectives is an international, open and constantly growing network of people and groups interested in the participatory development of the urban environment. Every year since 2007 a meeting is held in a different city with the aim of strengthening the network and a way to consolidate a different view of the city from the official one: from people and for people.
In 2014, the annual meeting is in Barcelona from 6 to 13 July under the theme "The city is not for sale it's for living", a key concept today more than ever, especially in a city like Barcelona, beset by multiple urban and human conflicts caused by global capital.

During the two-year long Grundtvig Partnership „Enough for Everyone Forever“ four European organizations (based in Spain, France, Germany and Poland) work together to improve educational methods for sustainable education.
All four partners use creative methods to work with adults on political and ecological topics, but each one is expert on a specific approach such as visual arts, theatre or music.
Each organization hosts one meeting, inviting the partners to get to know its context of educational work. During those meetings, we share our skills and experiences both in theoretical and practical ways. Combining our creative approaches, we develop an interdisciplinary action that is carried out in the public space and sensibilizing the audience about sustainability.
What we have learned during the process is then transformed by each partner into an innovative pedagogical concept adapted to the organizations context and target group. After putting the concept into practice individually, we meet for the last time in order to reflect on the potential of the new tools that we have developed and to plan our future transnational projects, where we are going to bring together adults from different cultural backgrounds and use our newly acquired educational skills to work together on a sustainable future.
