The Permanent University together with the Students and Alumni of the Permanent University Association have been working hard in this direction for more than a decade. We have been working non-stop both in the training field and in activities for the personal development, the promotion of active citizenship and the reduction of dependence. In the European Year we want to join the iniciative of creating a conscience on the different problems, the better ways of dealing with them and the opportunities of personal development that the older adults have in a society for all ages.

To reach this purpose we are going to promote different activities collaborating with institutions, professional groups and associations, all this managed by the Vicerrectorado de Extensión Universitaria. Today we present a series of conferences that under the title CONFERENCES OF ACTIVE AGING, PROMOTION OF THE CULTURE AND THE PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, show us the concerns and contributions of different authors that have been part of the Permanent University of the University of Alicante, and it is a proof of active aging itself .

Children at war. Collateral victims? by Romualdo Pérez Sánchez

The thousands of wars that have taken place along history had different people that were responsible for causing or triggering them, but none of these conflicts were caused by a child. However, children are the most defenseless ones and those who its consequences affect the most. At the beginning of the 20th century a process was started in order to create a conscience on the need to protect children and it resulted in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. The author invites us to get to know better that process and also the difficulties that children suffered during our Civil War and the evacuations that took thousands of them to different countries.
