“We represented the Sfera project, with a Spherical pattern, since it symbolizes a uniform and homogeneous set in which any radius of action is equidistant from its Centre. At the same time, it represents light as the sphere of the Sun and moon illuminate day and night respectively “.
To be launched in the 2020-2021 academic year
SFERA Experience is the UCJC Foundation’s online platform to promote socio-educational innovation at Camilo José Cela University. Its mission is to provide students with a unique international experience, through which they can collaborate in interdisciplinary teams in solving social challenges that contribute to the promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The platform will bring together universities from all over Latin America that will compete in solving these challenges through the development of social entrepreneurship proposals through a participatory action-research approach.
KNOWLEDGE VOLUNTEERING - RAC
Knowledge Volunteering puts the know-how and experience of the UCJC Community at the service of society, seeking the development of experiences for personal and social transformation. To this end, the UCJC Foundation, in collaboration with various types of organisations, has developed multiple lines of action both locally and internationally, through which UCJC staff and students have the possibility of collaborating in solving the needs of our glocal environment from the putting into action of our own knowledge of their disciplines.
In order for our international volunteers to develop the necessary skills to face the reality that they will live in these new environments, UCJC professors who are experts in the areas of nursing, psychology and sports sciences have created a Volunteer Training
