The Sa Llavor Foundation is very happy to announce that we have joined the support committee of the Binissalem “Ciudad Educadora” project.
For this reason, we are going to take part in some of the activities that will be held over the next few weeks to commemorate the Universal Day of the Rights of the Child (20 November), the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25 November), and the International Day of the Educating City (30 November), as part of the programme of events to be held in Binissalem as an Educating City.
But what does the “Ciudad Educadora” project consist of?
This project stems from the International Association of Educating Cities (IAEC), which the municipality of Binissalem joined in 2016. The mission of this organisation is for education to become a tool for social transformation through four fundamental axes:
- The population should be able to enjoy lifelong learning in all areas of daily life.
- That diversity and inclusion be guiding values in each of the educational actions carried out, recognising the great wealth that these values bring to the community.
- Citizen participation is promoted, involving the community in education-related decision-making, and generating a network of collaboration between all the agents and sectors involved to improve the quality of education.
- To encourage sustainable development by promoting educational practices that take into account respect for the environment and social responsibility.
This project strengthens the community’s ties of union with an educational purpose that aims to be implemented in all spheres of life; objectives that are perfectly in line with the educational principles of the Sa Llavor Foundation. And we are particularly excited to be able to participate in a community project of such magnitude, because our original impulse, as an educational community, also tends towards that social transformation that can only be carried out hand in hand with the educational processes of teaching-learning.
With great gratitude for being able to collaborate in this beautiful local and international initiative, we hope to nurture with flourishing seeds this space for meeting, dialogue and action that is unfolding before us, so that integral qualitative education becomes a basic right of all human beings and the engine of transformation towards a more harmonious, respectful, co-responsible, supportive, peaceful, loving and more connected to life society.
