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.


Conferences of Active Aging, Promotion of the Culture and Personal Development


Popular artistic expressions of our environment. The special case of Camp de Mirra and its "Tractat", by Michèle Giacoma and Vicente Aguilella.

Popular celebrations gather history and customs that remain alive in our memories and are part of our collective memory. Some of the most emblematic festivities of our close environment will be shown. The speakers will talk about artistic representations such as the "Auto de los Reyes Magos", of Canyada de Biar "; El Cant de la Sibil- la” d' Ontinyent; the "Episodios Caudetanos", of the Caudete; the "La Mahoma" phenomenon and the representations of the popular plays of Camp de Mirra: " El Tractat d' Almirra" and "El Naixement de Jaume I". These speakers, who are active participants in those celebrations, will encourage the attending people to participate in them.
