Project in which education, sustainability, art and architecture are part of a knowledge system to understand and respond to new forms of organization. Theoretical classes and lectures will be combined
with practical sessions linked to programs like # Escóitasme? or #mestradeobra based on the transformation of educational spaces. We will visit realities of self-management of rural space that help to fix population to
territory and to recover the cultural historical memory of areas affected by the economic depression and industrial reconversion.
The different ways of knowledge that this course provides are connected with the prevailing interdisciplinarity in the contemporary world. Basically we seek to influence issues such as environmental, urban and territorial management; cultural management and production; digital culture and education. For this, sociology, architecture, art and pedagogy will have to be shelled and intercommunicated during this seminar.
