Urban Academy programme is different, but really practical education through experience and work. And young people are the experts here.
Urban Academy has provided specific know-how knowledge on how the City works. Youth and adults learn from each other. Activities carried out within this project will include: co-creation of educational activities, a guide about Lublin, and perhaps mapping the city space and activities related to designing youth-friendly solutions in the next semester.
Civic education has the power to improve youth social activity, its influence and self-management. We care about relationship building and creating opportunities to take responsibility for development of the youth-friendly City – City of Our Dreams.

SCHOOL CIVIC BUDGET
School Civic Budget is “a process where a school community decides about objective part of school budget (most often determined by a school management or parents). Students, parents, teachers or other school employees introduce ideas, create projects and choose the ones they consider the most attractive and necessary.” (The School Participatory Budget – tips for beginners, The Field of Dialogue Foundation (Fundacja Pole Dialogu), Shipyard Foundation in Warsaw, 2019 (Fundacja Pracownia Badań i Innowacji Społecznych „Stocznia”, Warszawa).
We are carrying out the first edition of School Civic Budget within the European Youth Capital programme. This is the first step to create the programme about development of children and youth self-management.
