Knowing and building my neighborhood

It works by analysing different neighbourhoods in order to understand how they are made up, and what qualities and elements improve the quality of life using examples and ways in which citizen participation influences the improvement of neighbourhoods. The workshop presents the challenge of developing the capacity to understand, through observation, the composition of neighbourhood models. In this way, we will work on gathering information that will highlight the shortcomings, advantages and differences of different models, with the aim of agreeing on basic elements for the construction of an equitable neighbourhood, in different areas such as equipment, accessibility, transport, green areas, etc. The workshop will be relevant to generate awareness in the students of the capacity of the community for the development of residential neighbourhoods, and how important their presence is to ensure a better quality of life.
