DIPLOCAT and Educació 360 organize a trip to London to learn about good educational practices

25 people will travel to the UK, representing Catalan municipalities that are part of the Educació 360 alliance and DIPLOCAT member organizations

DIPLOCAT and the Educació 360 alliance, through the Bofill Foundation, which is one of its promoters, with the collaboration of the Delegation of the Catalan Government to the United Kingdom and Ireland, have organized a trip to London from 14 to 16 March to get to know first-hand educational experiences outside the school environment. The visits will include interviews, round tables, exhibitions and small-format conversations with local stakeholders such as schools, activity providers and municipality leaders. With this activity, DIPLOCAT encourages the study, analysis and exchange of international good practice models that in this case may be relevant to the Catalan educational context.

The guiding thread of the trip will be to delve deeper into the right to education beyond the school institution, promoted in Catalonia by the Educació 360 Alliance, which works to guarantee this right based on the promotion of content, work spaces and thought. More than 300 agents are currently part of Educació 360, such as town councils, county councils, socio-educational organizations and universities, among others. They work together to increase the participation of children aged 5 to 14 in extracurricular activities and thus reduce educational inequalities.

During the trip to London, the Edunauta Passport project will be discussed, a programme focused on recognizing and expanding learning. This project is present in around thirty Catalan municipalities and has also been implemented in the United Kingdom through the Children's University, an organization that works in partnership with schools and municipalities to develop the motivation for learning among the youngest.

Among the delegation of 25 people who will travel to London are representatives of the following municipalities that are currently implementing the Edunauta Passport in Catalonia: Sitges, Vilafranca del Penedès, Cassà de la Selva, Tarragona, Tordera, Barberà del Vallès, Torelló, Viladecans, Palafrugell, Amposta, Maçanet de la Selva, Avinyó, Granollers, Sant Vicenç dels Horts and Barcelona. There will also be representatives of different DIPLOCAT member organizations such as the Catalan Association of Municipalities, the Federation of Municipalities of Catalonia, the Group of Entities of the Voluntary Sector of Catalonia, and the Government of Catalonia, through the Ministries of Education and Social Rights.
