Leaving behind its traditional perception as the context in which to elaborate, transfer and communicate knowledge, this book speaks of the evolution towards an appreciation of experiential, personal and collective learning located in the territory.
These learnings are under constant revision as a result of their resilience and permeability to the contexts in which they are generated.
Civic Design focuses on civic projects, like projects related to citizenship understood as a political collectivity; it is applied to achieve collective solutions designed for the good of a community.
