Abstract

The research is focused on the description of the inside organization of educative networks (ENs) and the aspects that allowed their growth and success in the city of Barcelona (Spain). The ENs emerged over the last ten years in Catalonia, Spain, as a new way of facing the social and educative action in the territory. These educative proposals are based on the connection between the different educative institutions in the community, to tackle social and education challenges in cooperation through a common project. The intent of ENs is to create synergies between cooperating organizations, and to coordinate community action so as to avoid the overlaps that cause parallel work. Along these years and in spite of the difficulties found, the study shows how these educative structures take advantage of the context possibilities to improve educative impact and develop a new vision of organizing and conceiving education.
