Rio de Janeiro Law School supports collective civic engagement project Rio+
FGV's Rio de Janeiro Law School supports the project Rio+, which is an initiative by the Benfeitoria platform that seeks to launch in Rio de Janeiro a playful way of civic engagement towards municipal changes, with the participation of all social spheres.
The coordinator of the Legal Practice Center at Rio de Janeiro Law School, André Mendes, explains how the school will participate: The support will be through a Clinical Center of Legal Practice (NPJ). Students will undertake feasibility studies of ideas submitted, and then measure the impact of the ideas implemented, he says.
André also points out that students from all FGV Schools in Rio are eligible to participate. Just enroll at the Clinical NPJ responsible for the project, which will begin in the second semester of 2013. According to him, the society in Rio can also contribute by sending ideas. Everyone can make the experience of being carioca (from Rio de Janeiro) and living in Rio a better experience, the professor believes.
