Argentinian researchers promote Mobility and Health programme!
The Mobility and Health research project titled “Mobility, poverty and adolescent health in Argentina" will be among the many presentations at “The social needs and the university” conference organised on 27 and 28 September at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA). This conference is jointly organised by the Faculties of Philosophy and Linguistics, Social Sciences, Architecture, Design and Urbanism, Exact and Natural Sciences, and the Common Basic Cycle.
The activities of the UBA relating to the demands and interests of the popular sector have increased during the last couple of years. Among them are formal activities (like the recent calls for research projects on Social Urgency) and informal activities that involve teachers, researchers and students. Nevertheless, in a national context with a high degree of social inequality and lasrge portions of the population lacking basic necessities, this is still insufficient. To improve the relationship the interests of the popular sector are an important issue for the university community. Also, the ways to tackle this subject is very varied, it ranges from case studies and research to direct joint implementation.
The specific objectives of the conference are:
- To learn, to enrich and to harness the existing experiences.
- To share and to interchange points of view with the social organsations, NGOs, cooperatives and companies,
- To promote interested people at the university community by inviting other Departments or Institutes, and to increase the number and quality of activities.
- To discuss the mechanisms to strengthen joint teaching, research and extension within the university. To increase the interest and the motivation of the university community, and in particular of young people.
- To promote the interaction between different areas of knowledge
