Working Together to Build the Urban and Community Way
In this section you can find information about the path and different stages of the Urban and Community Way, which have been set out and are in progress, fuelled by the seeds that are grown by millions of men and women, thanks to solidarity.
The process of establishing the Urban and Community Way was initiated by the inhabitants organisations and social urban movements who have decided to take a decisive step to go beyond declarations and good practices by uniting themselves on a global level.
The focus is on a common arena and path, not a bureaucratic superstructure, where the networks of inhabitants, whilst maintaining their independence, can share their experiences, draw up strategies and platforms, strengthen solidarity with the g-local struggles, and have common tools.
The challenge is to determine the strategies and collective actions, involving proposals, a programme, an organisational model and the strengthening of alliances with a view to making revolutionary systemic changes. That is to say, restructure a Social Urban Pact for human rights, the environment and the responsibility of inhabitants to be builders and co-governors, not just consumers-users of their territories.
It is a proposal by the inhabitants, open and in progress, which also proposes a dialogue with others social players, as well as with local and national progressive governments.
