Martí Casadesús participates in the seminar on the role of the universities and objectives for sustainable development

The director of AQU Catalunya, Martí Casadesús, participated in the working group on "Soft skills associated with education for sustainable development", which formed part of the seminar on "The role of the universities and objectives for sustainable development: towards universities that are critical and committed" held at the Sant Pau Modernist complex on 11 July.

The objective of the seminar was to make known and raise awareness of the wide range of concepts about and initiatives on Education for Development (EpD) and Education for Sustainability in universities at the global level and to bolster the network of actors who are working in and developing transformative education. This was the third time that a series of seminars has been organised, the aim of which is to integrate an approach to critical education in undergraduate studies at public universities in Catalonia.

This event formed part of the ESDU project, an initiative being promoted by EpD within the formal setting of the universities that aims at enhancing the role of the universities in producing critical knowledge and creating an active, committed citizenry that will take action in the face of unjust situations at both a local and global scale. ESDU is led by the Fundació Autònoma Solidària (FAS), in cooperation with the Catalan Association of Public Universities (ACUP) and is supported by Barcelona City Hall.
