The course aims to guide young people towards civic participation by showing associative contexts and measuring their technical skills in them.
In this sense, the course is not a traditional exploration of social theory focused on the forms of civic political participation, but rather a laboratory of reading the city as a set of social action contexts, as a set of breeding grounds for generative conflict, exchange between groups and institutions, collective efforts for the management of social change towards horizons of less inequality and so on. The main objective of the course is therefore that students learn to read the possibilities of participation offered in the contexts where they live.
Another very important objective is that students learn to distinguish between the different forms of participation not only for "problematic" addressed but also for social composition and internal relational modalities. In this sense, at the end of the course students should have the ability to read the plurality of forms (relationships, interactions, leadership) that animate movements, associations, collectives of political civic participation.
