XVII International Congress of Educating Cities in Curitiba
From May 21 to 24, 2024, Curitiba will host the XVII International Congress of Educating Cities, with the theme: "Sustainability, Innovation and Inclusion in Educating Cities: transforming the present".
The Municipal Secretariat of Education of Curitiba is the current coordinator of the Brazilian Network of Educating Cities (REBRACE), belonging to AICE, which is the International Association of Educating Cities, headquartered in Barcelona. Currently, the network has more than 500 cities in 36 countries, spread across all continents. Curitiba's membership in AICE gave the city the strength to expand innovative projects and implement public facilities for learning, leisure and quality of life, also contributing to reaffirm and legitimize the city's educational potential.
The international congresses, held every two years by AICE, represent the culmination of the sustainable and continuous work carried out by the cities and are an opportunity to deepen aspects of the Charter of Educating Cities, to disseminate, contrast and exchange good practices, as well as to provide new contacts and eventual collaborations between cities.
