The BIBA (Building Intergenerational Bridges in Arqus) Forum is an initiative organised within Action Line 2.8, Seniors’ Universities: sharing of best practices and short-term mobility, to build more inclusive societies by widening access and new transitions in higher education institutions.

With this aim, the Forum provides free and open 1,5-hour monthly discussions about the pertinent issues and ideas confronting us, in the world today, from an international and intergenerational point of view. These sessions are addressed to both young and senior students.

The BIBA Forum 2022 will consist on 5 interesting online sessions revolving around diversity, interdisciplinarity and societal challenges. Each session will be devoted to a specific subtopic, such as (but not restricted to) diversity in sustainable development, diversity in cultural heritage, diversity in digital transition, among others.
