Summer course: "Diplomacy of the cities"

Curso de verano:

The Network of Houses of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation organizes the summer course "Diplomacy of the Cities", which will take place from July 3 to 7 in the Diplomatic School in Madrid. Each of the six houses under the authority of the network has participated in the organization of the course depending on their area of ​​action and influence.

Cities, as an urban space where more than 70% of the world's population lives, the city undoubtedly has great relevance for citizens. However, its international presence and connection with other cities in transnational meetings and networks of similar cities stand out these days to promote best practices on issues of environmental sustainability or the use of technologies, such as "Smart cities" or the Greencities network.

Cities are also protagonists in terms of public diplomacy as an international showcase of the degree of development and cultural richness offered by a country as a whole. The Network of Houses is, in this sense, an ideal instrument to carry out an approach to the various facets of the phenomenon of "urban diplomacy" from all geographical perspectives, which offers us the opportunity to study international activity and influence of the cities, and their impact and quality of life of the citizen.

Course open to civil society. Requirements: university academic level and knowledge of the English language, (some of the speakers will not speak in Spanish).
