The City of Rio, through the Department of Science and Technology, in partnership with Uniperiferias, inaugurated, this Monday (1), the Navezinha Carioca Rio das Pedras, in the West Zone. The space appears as an innovative initiative with the aim of promoting the democratization of knowledge, integration into the job market, exploring the potential of the technology segment, through courses, workshops and events for the population.

Navezinha Rio das Pedras is located at the headquarters of the Social Project Semeando Amor, at Rua Espada de São Jorge nº 405. The space has notebooks and audiovisual equipment for users. The Navezinha Carioca project, in partnership with Uniperiferias, foresees the implementation of five units offering at least 350 courses and workshops that will serve more than 5,300 people in one year.

– Navezinha Carioca is an important achievement for all Cariocas. This project offers free access to technology and training courses for the population. The idea is for the little ships to be present throughout the city of Rio – stated the Secretary of Science and Technology, Tatiana Roque.

The Navezinhas Cariocas are reduced versions of the Naves do Knowledge, which have nine units located in the North and West regions of the city of Rio, offering free internet access, workshops, lectures and qualification courses in various areas focused on professions of the future.

The action that offers courses is implemented in peripheral regions of the city in territories with levels of social vulnerability, with a focus on carrying out training strategies in new technologies, games and audiovisual, with the premise of democratizing knowledge, so that all areas of the city have access to the opportunities offered by digital technologies, through courses, workshops and events.

– It is indisputable that technology is a powerful tool for thinking about futures for the city of Rio de Janeiro, and thinking about the city from the favelas certainly contributes to a more plural and inclusive city – declared the director at Uniperiferias, Felipe Moulin.

The Rio das Pedras unit is the third Navezinha Carioca opened by the City Hall. The other units are located in Complexo da Maré, at Instituto Vida Real, and at UERJ’s Maracanã Campus, which will act as an extension of Navezinha, which will soon be opened on the Mangueira block. It is also planned to open a unit in Rocinha.
