The new Centre for Studies on Planetary Wellbeing at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Centre de Estudis sobre Benestar Planetari) stems from the Institutional Initiative on Planetary Wellbeing promoted by the former Rector Jaume Casals.
The Centre functions as a catalyst for people who are interested in themes related to Planetary Wellbeing within UPF. We envision that through dialogue and continuous exchange of ideas, new opportunities will arise, in the form of collaborative research proposals, proof-of-concepts, creation of networks, artistic performances, etc.
The Centre embodies UPF's efforts to implement environmental stewardship into society and education. The Centre will convey and accelerate UPF's commitment to the SDGs and its institutional transformation, to respond effectively to the challenges of imagination, knowledge and social and political action posed by the climate and biodiversity crisis.
