CAT/SP – News n. 45 – Manresa aspires to be the permanent location of the Catalan Summer University

Courses on sustainability, science and technology, health, history and literature. Midday and afternoon with debates of all kinds: economy, Big Data, education or cinema. And cultural evenings. This is the proposal of the Universitat Catalana d’Estiu (UCE) in Manresa. For the first time in its 50 years of history, it will have its seat outside the traditional Prada de Conflent (South of France).

It will be held from 5 to 10 July. During all these days, “the university campus will be the city,” the Mayor of Manresa, Valentí Junyent, said on Friday in the presentation of the activities program. It is made up of 6 university courses, 6 debates and round table discussions on current issues, 5 concerts and 4 movie theaters.
