This Programme promotes the creation of public spaces as meeting places to strengthen of community life, involves the difficult transition into a new institutional framework based on relations of proximity and shared responsibility between the government and citizens, and is based on the social organization of the low income sectors, as well as in the assistance offered by social and civil organizations and academics from various universities.
