2knowbarcelona (2015)

2knowbarcelona is a community of students who share the passion for social innovation

At a glance:

Vision
An open, participative and dynamic university that works to reduce the gap between the world where we live in and the world where we would like to live in.

Mission

  • Updated agenda of social innovation events happening in the city.
