Educational and cultural training have been shown to promote the development and preservation of mental capacities. It also helps us to understand the world around us, and facilitates our adaptation to its constant changes. An educated person is more aware of the world around him and therefore, they are more prepared to change it and improve their quality of life. The multigenerational programme in "Culture and Solidarity'"is designed to be an enriching space for personal fulfilment, open to any person at any time during his lifetime.
The programme "Culture and solidarity" that is offered at the University of Deusto was created in 1999. Its aim was to share its 100-year experience with those who were not able to benefit from it, either because they did not have the required previous qualifications, or because they could not find a course that was adapted to their individual needs and motivations.
This programme seeks to explore the global anthropological concept of culture that encompasses ways of life, the fundamental human rights, values, affections, traditions, arts and beliefs that characterise a community. Knowing them is essential to educate taste, aesthetics, feelings, creativity and respect for other forms of expression, as well as to examine, understand or take action over social realities.
With this multigenerational programme in "Culture and solidarity", the University of Deusto aims to contribute to making a fairer and more humane society, capable of overcoming discriminatory barriers. Thus, it seeks to promote a society based on respect, tolerance and solidarity.
The University is located in a privileged location, near the Guggenheim Museum, the Fine Arts Museum and the Euskalduna Congress and Concert Hall. Participants in this course will benefit from:
- Highly qualified teaching staff, with extensive research and teaching experience in the different subject areas.
- An intergenerational university context.
- Facilities available: library, study rooms, computer rooms, etc.
- Cultural activities
