Solidarity Fridge, the solution depens on us

I don’t know how many times I’ve told my children that they had to eat everything on their plate, that it won’t be me who throws food away, that it’s better to put just what you are going to eat on your plate, but I’ve also told them and others the great and simple idea of taking home the food “we can’t finish” after having lunch or dinner out, in bags or in tuppers. The thing is that some days ago I watched on TV a story related to these situations that also concerns me. I think that it needs, without any doubt, a special place on this blog. I’m talking about the Solidarity Fridge initiative. (more…)

WHAT REALLY MATTERS

A few years ago, when I wasn’t on a great moment of my life, one of my brothers in law gave me a book that, according to him, I was going to like because it was like the ones I usually like. He wasn’t wrong. In addition to giving me a gift, which I love, I must say that it was THE GIFT. A book full of STORIES, those where you want to be the protagonist.

A BIKE, A STORY AND A GAMUSINA: THE OPPORTUNITY

I admit that one of the projects this post is based on got to my heart last Tuesday the 26th of September when I was listening to the radio while I was having breakfast. Not only that, but speaking with one of the people who is behind it just made me even more excited. Maybe it’s professional deformation or just “personal deformation”. I only wish (and that’s where I make an effort) that my college students and my own children learn, also, from people like the one I am presenting you today.

I invite you to know this E.P. and some of his projects. (more…)

Contributing to the social transformation from social entrepreneurship

On Wednesday the 21st of June, my first doctoral student (already a PhD) Nerea Sáenz defended the thesis entitled: La formación en emprendimiento social en la educación superior: competencias, metodologías de enseñanza-aprendizaje e instrumentos de evaluación. Estudio de casos en dos universidades europeas. (Training in social entrepreneurship in higher education: competencies, teaching and learning methodologies and assessment tools. Study of the cases in two European universities).

Today not only I present you some of the main ideas of the thesis, but also her author, of whom I feel so proud. Why would it be? (more…)

WOPing around life

Do you know what a runner, an alpinist, a pianist and a neurologist do together in a room, surrounded by approximately 450 people, most of them between 15 and 18, coming from 7 different schools of Bilbao and surrounding area? You can think about it for a while or read this post and find it out.

The choice is yours. I can wait as much as you want.
