Are Cities Any Place for Children

passeggino"To put the common good ahead of the demands of developers seeking to maximize profits in every possible way". It 's a brief reflection of Jay Walljasper from the pages of Shareable cities.

A new civic engagement for the city

follashareableWe often forget that our cities are living, breathing organisms that are constantly being changed to reflect the needs and demands of its citizens. In essence, we live in a Sim City – a city that is being built and maintained and developed constantly. Perhaps we can reengage citizens by creating an experience that reflects that.

Benedict XVI in Venice

Venezia_serenissima

The Pope Benedict XVI, met with representatives from the areas of culture, art, and economics in the Basilica of St. Mary of Health in Venice at May 8th.

The Holy Father offered a few reflections based on three words that he called "suggestive metaphors". They are "three words tied to Venice and, in particular, to the place in which we meet: the first is 'water'; the second is 'health'; and the third is 'Serenissima'" ("Most Serene", a title referring to the Venetian Republic).

Subcategories

Economy and Work

Our society is made up of people who are constantly building relationships: in the family, in places of recreation and even at their places of work where creativity, competence and commitment bring about that which is the “good” for all. Economy and work therefore represent two fields where the human and spiritual patrimony of every person can be put to the service of the community. These are privileged spaces where one can combine the needs and wants with the resources and opportunities.

Ethnicities and Cultures

One often hears of education towards awareness of being people of the same world and awareness of other cultures as a way of overcoming prejudices. Universal brotherhood takes on yet another dimension both on the theoretical level as on the level of social action: it is the appreciation of diversity as a value to be shared and “promoted” on the levels of ideas and experiences for the good of all.

Social Ethics

There is a bond between spirituality and social commitment that is summed up in ethics: the spiritual elevation of the individual guides it to responsible action in every environment. In the Gospel and in the Scared Books of the other religions there exists the so called Golden Rule, “Do to others what you wish others will do to you”: here is the proposal for a public set of ethics that is easy to translate into the ethics of history.

Health: Person, Environment

Thinking of “the common good” by thinking first of the well-being of the individual is a sure way of finding previously unimagined solutions, but also for sharing ideas and proposals to better the quality of life in our cities, even from the ecological point of view. From the global to the particular, the commitment to health and psychophysical well-being generates a good life which is part of a better society.

Social Harmony and Art

There is a profound relationship between space and society: the quality of the environment in which we work, live and relax also has a decisive influence on the kind of relationships and therefore on the quality of life of every person. Looked at from the angle of fraternity, human relationships and the inhabitants’ need of beauty can point to solutions and ideas that will have the whole person at the center and therefore ”furnish a house” that is good for all.

Education and Culture

The human and cultural formation both of the individual and of society is a fundamental richness for society. If fraternity is a way of thinking and acting seen from the pedagogical aspect, it can propel a united model of research that will bring out the direct relationship between theory and practice, between words and concrete life. This is because the idea of the common good also depends on the idea of the person who is being referred to.

 

Social Communication

It is necessary to communicate in order to live as a family. The means of social communication are instruments of a reciprocity which grows and matures every relationship between people and between cultures and favors a personal and common research into the truth and sense of the development of humanity. 

Politics and P.A.

Politics, which aims at bringing together the needs and the resources of a particular society, aims at the synthesis of the active forces, encourages the operations of the associations and brings about order in the multiple aspects of the lives of its citizens. New Humanity comes into play in order that every citizen becomes a subject of politics, recognizing the social ties that bring together the destinies of nations and people in the perspective of a more united world. It is a project that promotes fraternity as a political category where the principles, which cannot be renounced, of the dignity of the individual, of liberty, of fairness, of subsidiarity and of justice, find their realization.
