Giving access to everyone in the city to books and a friendly platform is a great way to promote literacy and social cohesion all at once. The project installs free mini libraries around the city, connecting poor districts with a funny and innovative libraries network. The project also promotes civic participation and democracy in Argentina (democracy was re-established in 1983 after decades of dictatorships).
Argentina recovered democracy 30 years ago, and the citizens still dont understand how the system works. After years of political parties monopolizing the country agenda, people don't believe that the system will resolve their problems. Creating awareness about public space and accesibility to all citizens to education and culture are positive and innovative ways to engage citizens in the country life.
Engagement of the civil society in the country's issues is key to create a future and build more democracy,therefore we will offer a platform where people can get involved and engage with different topics. The project will be executed involving specially youngsters from high schools and universities.
The long term effects are difficult to project, everything can happen basically. We expect to create more social committed society and reach around 300 students yearly and 4000 people with our actions.
