Urban challenges and resilient cities: A teachers’ guide (In Macedonian)

December 14, 2016
What happens in our cities is crucial to the sustainable development agenda, and education is vital in achieving a shift to sustainable and inclusive urban development. REC'S new educative tool is designed as a guide to help secondary-school teachers present Europe’s main urban challenges and engage their students in the quest for solutions. The materials are ideal for use with students between the ages of 16 and 18 to help not only to understand the urgency of today’s challenges, but also seek answers on what can be done to address them.

While 75 percent of Europeans are now living in cities, in a shocking number of countries, including Brazil, Japan, the Netherlands, Venezuela and Israel, the proportion of people living in urban areas is already over 90 percent. Europeans inside and outside metropolitan areas have adopted lifestyles that are deeply intertwined with the cultural, education and health services provided by cities, thus the line between urban and rural environments is rapidly blurring.
