Anybody and everybody can succeed,

You will be acquainted with an “Education City” which breaks out of traditional school borders in order to create a growing and developing educational sphere – that is, an educational environment that becomes an inseparable part of the everyday lives of its residents. We will introduce the process of becoming an Education City, a city that attempts at creating an urban space that allows “Anybody Can” to fulfill his or her uniqueness in the community.

Our journey starts with an inspiring visit to the mayor in “Bat-Yam Education City” and at the “Product”: “The Bat-Yam model for Personal education” and ends at creating an exceptional and distinct “Education City” which stands out in its uniqueness and innovation.

An attempt will be made to understand the various elements of a municipal process that actually changes a whole urban culture while holding on its municipal characteristics. It will be discovered that creating an “Educational City” goes beyond changing the municipal educational system.

We will map the various incorporations needed in order to build our vision and succeed in manifesting an “Education City” that sustains a green community.

We will aim at specifying all the various challenges we faced before and after the assimilation of the program and will simultaneously convey the difficulties and successes along the way. We will also suggest future recommendations.
