Every April 23rd, the streets, squares, shops, houses and also universities from Barcelona are filled with books and roses to celebrate Saint George’s Day. A participative day in which the written and recited word are the center of the attention.

Saint George Day at Abat Oliba

Taking advantage of Saint George and Book Day, from 20 to 23 April, the Universitat Abat Oliba CEU held various solidarity days. Days in which the university community was able to collaborate and participate in the Saint George Solidarity Market. This market was located in the courtyard of the University.

The Vice-rectorate for Students, with the collaboration of the Volunteer Service of that university, saw the festivity of Saint George as a unique opportunity to promote a spirit of solidarity. Different associations participated with the sale of their products in the charity market. A great opportunity to collaborate with them on one of the most beautiful days in Barcelona.

We thought that this university was a perfect place to discover if young people are involving themselves and are more conscious of the problems that are happening around the world. Or if they can help in some project. A lot of associations were at the University trying to explain what they do to help people. They try to reclute some students for those projects. In that sense there is one of the projects, Trenks and Books, an association that helps people from Nepal. They organize travels for volunteers there.

Another one, Proyecto Benín, tried to seek funding for his educational project in Africa through the sale of products.

A project closer to us that wanted to give us its point of view is Asociación ASTE. They organized a workshop where they make roses for older people. Along with a phrase, which they deliver in the afternoon to different homes for older people.

Let’s see what the responsibles of every project told us about the involvement of young people. More concretely what young people from the Catalan university said.
