Welcome

The III Global Symposium Uniservitate is an invitation to make the Global Education Pact and universal fraternity a reality through service-learning. Students, teachers, researchers and leaders from the five continents will share experiences and reflections that show how to bring about the dream of being brothers and sisters and institutionalise the pedagogy of service-learning. 

Based on the Global Education Pact, this third edition will focus on the following thematic areas: 1. Dignity and human rights; 2. Fraternity and co-operation; 3. Technology and Integral Ecology; 4. Peace and Citizenship; 5.Cultures and Religions. 

This meeting will also be the ideal space to share with the protagonists of the winning experiences of the Uniservitate Award 2022 led by students, teachers and solidarity communities. In this way, the aim is to contribute to the promotion of a humanism of solidarity, the development of the spiritual dimension of service, and the strengthening of the identity and mission of Higher Education Institutions.
