Seminari PANIKKAR UdG
El Seminari Raimon Panikkar de Pensament Intercultural va néixer a finals del curs 2007-08. Vol ser un espai d’estudi i meditació, a partir del treball amb els textos de les grans tradicions de saviesa, com també del pensament contemporani dels diversos àmbits filosòfics amb una mirada intercultural. En sintonia amb la figura i obra de Raimon Panikkar, aquest seminari vol aconseguir un equilibri entre el necessari rigor acadèmic del treball intel·lectual, i una necessària i inevitable recerca interior i un creixement espiritual.
Upcoming project: MonTech (starting January 2021)
MonTech project will foster social inclusion and equity in multicultural schools across Europe through highly innovative and engaging activities based on a new approach that blends the Montessori method with cutting-edge Maker Education learning experiences. It has the double objective of adapting Montessori to the new context of multicultural schools (schools with a significant amount of children with refugee/migrant/minority background) and updating it with modern but affordable digital tools/methods for schools with few economic resources.
