Universities represent, in every epoch, the value society gives to knowledge. Modernity has considered its ideal wise person or sage to be the erudite and the specialist, in response to a period in history shaped by the needs of industrialism and by scientific and technological research. However, wisdom is not the sum of specific knowledge but rather the ability to reach human fulfillment in the midst of circumstances offered by any given era. This is the purpose of a university, to offer a space where, while taking care of the individual and their singularity, the paths shown and the knowledge imparted is an appropriate basis from which to act in the present.
To be involved in the creation of worlds, worthy of all beings, is the origin of this project, inspired by thinkers like Ivan Illich and Raimon Panikkar. It is supported by social movements which, across the world, are mining beneath the economic discourse and the values which guide it. It is part of the anthropological turn around which displaces human beings from the center of the planet and situates them on the brow of the network of living beings configured by the earth and the universe. More concretely in the field of education, it has as a reference point the Earth Universities established in Latin America.
