Idea

Idea pitch

The aim of this project is to bring children closer to love of art, art history and, broadly speaking, beauty. The meaning of the project is to bring children and their families to places where they are surrounded by beauty to educate them to respect all that it contains inside within it, that is, the cultural, historical, archaeological heritage but also nature with flora and fauna that belongs to it.

Where will your project idea take place?

Rome, Lazio

What is the local challenge?

Rome is a city not suitable for children. We would like children and their families to take back the spaces of the city, get to know them better and be able to live them peacefully,through a self-help network.

How does your idea strengthen democracy and active citizenship at a local and community level?

Through the possibility of frequenting the spaces of one's own city, one learns to respect the spaces in which one lives.

Who are you doing it for?

Through the involvement of educators and
figures from the world of childhood and the family, cultural associations, heads of archaeological sites and museums, municipalities, families.

How do you plan to get there?

Through activities that help families get to know us, the use of public transport to get around the city and sustainable means such as bicycles, carts for children.

What are the expected results?

A collaboration between families will be born and the city will adapt to having to meet everyone's needs and to open its doors to children, who often remain excluded from historical and cultural spaces

How does your initiative contribute to strengthening democracy in Europe?

Making cities available with their beauty begins to sow that seed in children which will then lead to a great sense of civic and belonging to a community-

What is your story?

Having a city where children can be seen again fill the squares again.
