Espacios de Paz(Spaces for Peace) is an exercise of Participatory Design that attempt to activate processes of physical and social transformation through the self-construction of public spaces in conflicting areas.
Promoting a culture of peace that encourages peaceful coexistence, comes from redefining the territories. Ensuring that the “zones of danger”, areas with high presence of all kind of violence, are transformed into “zones of peace”, areas with the possibility of creating social dynamics that invite new ways of living in communities, transforming the basic categories that rule the daily life: the use of time and space.
An opportunity to work on the processes of learning and cooperation,based on the exchange and transfer of knowledge and experience, turning human and territorial potential into power, “the ability to do.” Ensure that individuals are involved all together and recognized as a whole in the site, being conscious that their own contribution is part of the general result.
