"la Caixa" Foundation has launched a call with the aim of fostering reflection and dialogue on the issue of human development and sustainability. It seeks to strengthen its role as a meeting point of the main social actors — organisations, associations, public authorities and professionals — to address the current changes holistically, overcoming academic and sectoral barriers.

We wish to be a meeting point for all these social actors and encourage them to work to establish priorities, detect innovative methodologies, and drive economic development and social transformation.

    The call for applications is based on four core areas of reflection:

    1. Human development and economic sustainability: constructing alternative economic models and policies in a global world.

    2. Human development and environmental sustainability: the environment, climate change, limited natural resources and their preservation.

    3. Human development and social sustainability: the evolution of problems of social exclusion and welfare systems in the present and future.

    4. Human development and thought: identity and a sense of belonging, forms of organisation and political regulation.
