An interesting educational project has been set up using the Improve My City platform at Santa Maria da Feira, a city and municipality in Aveiro District in Portugal.
Aqui decides tu (Here you decide!), is a platform created by Centro de Recursos Educativos Municipal where young residents or students of the municipality, from 6 to 17 years old can participate to submit local problems. Then the Children’s Assembly, a learning community where children are encouraged to ask questions, reflect and debate on municipality related topics, is tasked with resolving the issues.
Here is the orientation video
We are very happy that our platform aids in a substantial educational effort and we hope more municipalities will follow the example set by Santa Maria da Feira.
