INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IAUTA "U3A'S, CITIZENSHIP AND SOCIAL COHESION"

Logo AIUTA

The University of Alicante organizes of the I.A.U.T.A. International Conference on Thursday 11th - Friday 12th June, 2015  and  brings together the third age universities of all continents.

The theme of this International Conference: "U3A's, Citizenship and Social Cohesion" highlights one of the priorities for U3A’s in the 21st century, namely: the need to delve deeper into ongoing and lifelong training and to focus on senior training as a key aim in the reduction of poverty and social exclusion among the older segment of the population. Recognizing the value that corresponds to older adults’ experience together with the inescapable need for their social presence as active and integrated citizens in their own right appears as an unquestionable priority. In this respect, U3A’s have clearly assumed the role of spreading this message about the need of recognition for older adults, about the fact that their integration is an essential goal, and also about the commitment that this entails to promote seniors’ ongoing training.

It is an ambitious aim which requires the participation of all Universities of the Third Age, gathered in I.A.U.T.A during the International Conference at the University of Alicante. We thus warmly welcome you to our university and hope that our hospitality will help you feel at ease in your work during these days and also that this will lead to a fruitful outcome and to the fulfilment of the objectives proposed.

The next Sunday 14th of December is taking place the 5th HEALTHY WALK, organised by the University of Valencia, specifically by the NAU GRAN programme.

More than 600 hundred enrolled people in this edition will make a journey that will take us through the old bed of the River Turia, from the Botanical Garden to the Square of the “Rectorat”, where we will enjoy a “healthy lunch”.

The Healthy Walk is a familiar meeting, intergenerational, which aims to kindly claim the importance of the older adult's involvement in our society. Is an active but not competitive walk where people will be able to share public spaces, specially green areas. This initiative was created in 2010 by the NAU GRAN, the university programme for adults older than 50 years of the University of Valencia, and it has been consolidated in the official calendar of Valencia. From the start, it connects some university spaces with the “Rectorat” of the UV (first was from “Tarongers”, then from the historical building of the University of Valencia in La Nave/st), this year is the third time that it starts from the Botanical Garden, goes through the garden located in the old bed of the River Turia, and gets to the garden centre “Viveros” to finish in the Charles Darwin Square of the “Rectorat”.
