In partnership with the UPC and the UAB, RCE Barcelona is organizing a conference entitled A new knowledge culture to face global changes, with the overall aim of maximising universities´ potential to address the needs of the 21st century.
A new knowledge culture is needed in higher education to enable universities to address the great challenges we face in the 21st Century (e.g climate change, unsustainable consumption and production, corruption, lack of transparency, explosion of urban populations and world poverty).
