What is C2City?
C2City is a VISION
The vision of C2City is to promote personal, communal, and urban development around the world through city-wide collaboration around education, such that all members of a community have the right to express and develop their uniqueness while respecting the right of others to do the same.
C2City is a CONCEPT
The C2City concept revolves around collaboration with cities and localities who believe in taking responsibility for the education of all their members throughout their entire lives. Using the C2City model, program, and methods, we guide cities in their journey towards realizing the transformative ideas of Education City.
C2City is a JOURNEY
C2City is a transformation process guided by the concrete needs of the city and its members as well as clear goals. It begins with strategic mapping and continues with the co-creation of a vision, a desired image of the future, a strategy to promote this Future Image, and a practical plan of action.
C2City is a PORTFOLIO
The C2City Knowledge Center is led by experts engaged in developing a diverse set of tools and materials, culminating in a knowledge portfolio that supports the set-up of a full-blown Education City. These materials explore the theoretical, pedagogical, economic, organizational, and ethical facets of the Education City concept.
C2City is a TEAM
The C2City team consists of an international set of approximately 50 education practitioners, researchers, and managers who believe in the transformative power of education and learning within cities. Two educational organizations have joined expertise, experience, and resources to promote the C2City vision and mission worldwide.
C2City is a GLOBE
Various cities around the globe are implementing programs that feature practices and values of the Education City. C2City is pleased to exhibit these cities on an interactive map and welcomes you to contribute stories from your city.
