Agirre Lehendakaria Center (ALC) held on November 6 in Gasteiz a conference on the conflict in Western Sahara.

The conference, in view of the concurrence, evidenced the diversity and plurality of the people attending, as well as the opinions expressed there: Saharawi refugees, Colombians and people from other African countries took part in an interesting and enriching colloquium.

Agirre Lehendakaria Center (ALC) reaches more and more people every day. New e-learning technologies have made possible to materialize a successful experience with the University of Aconcagua (Chile). Thus, the Director of ALC, Juan Jose Ibarretxe, gave a lecture via ZOOM at this prestigious university with the participation of 19 students and teachers located throughout the Chilean territory where, among other arguments, the current need to “move from the education of skills to the education of sensitivities” was highlighted, in reference to the deficit that the system suffers.

Gorka Román Etxebarrieta. My six- month stay as a guest researcher at Columbia University in New York started in July, due to the agreement signed between Columbia´s University AC4 department, Agirre Lehendakaria Center and the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU). The main objetive for me to take part in this challenge, on both a professional and personal level, was to be part of a prestigious academic community such as the one at Columbia University. The signed program between ALC, UPV – EHU and AC4, was the ideal way to achieve this personal and professional goal. Up until now, the research and scientific objectives I settled and I travelled to New York City for, have been successfully met.
