The city environment for learning

The Union of Architects of Bulgaria and the Children’s Architectural Workshop of Sofia are organizing an international conference on 14 March 2016. This event will highlight the role of the city in teaching children about space and the built environment and will explore possibilities for interdisciplinary knowledge. The main goal is not to produce future architects, but to give children the opportunity to sharpen their sensitivity, their imagination, and their critical thinking abilities. Architects, teachers and construction professionals will meet to create pedagogic tools adapted to discovering the city environment. UIA Work Program members from Costa Rica, Egypt, France, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden and Bulgaria will take part in the conference. The annual meeting is scheduled for 15 and 16 March.
