Greetings from the rectors of the Universities that coordinate the Programme’s regional hubs




Any experience of service involves an encounter with another person… I think two things happen… firstly we encounter the person of Christ in the other… and secondly, it’s impossible not to learn something about ourselves in that process. Sebastian Duhau

The involvement of young people in the process of updating the educational system, more specifically, in service-learning… as active collaborators can encourage, inspire and make them real protagonists of this change. Oksana Pimenova
