I Global Symposium UNISERVITATE

The first event of this Programme, will be held next October 29th and 30th, it will be the virtual appointment for outstanding professionals of solidarity education.

In the framework of the global health crisis that forces us to rethink new ways of linking and committing ourselves to what will define us as a society from now on, this global event brings together leading specialists from different countries to reflect and exchange experiences around the institutionalization of solidarity service-learning and its contribution to the identity and mission of Catholic Institutions of Higher Education.

The Symposium, organized by UNISERVITATE – a program coordinated by Porticus with the collaboration of the Latin American Center for Learning and Solidarity Service (CLAYSS) – will take place next Thursday, October 29 and Friday, October 30, virtually and with free registration.
