UMH students conclude on-site phase of the international Travel Transformation project for sustainable development


Students from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) have concluded the on-site phase of the Travel Transformation project, an international initiative that strives to raise awareness about sustainable development. This project, funded by Erasmus+, consists of two such stays, one in Karnitz (Germany) and another in Santiago de Chile and La Ligua (also in Chile), as well as an online portion, wherein the participants continue working.

The international group from the Travel Transformation project along with instructors and participants from the International Summer Diploma at the Academy of Christian Humanism University (Santiago, Chile).

The Travel Transformation goal is to bring together sustainable development, the realities of climate change, and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to young people everywhere through communication. To accomplish this, a group of participants from six different countries (Chile, Mexico, Ecuador, Greece, Germany, and Spain) work together in workshops that produce products in various formats, such as audiovisual elements, radio broadcasts, advertisements, paintings, photographs, television shows, animations, etc., all under the coordination of professionals on the subject matter.

Furthermore, the youngsters attended lectures by sustainable development researchers and activists that form part of the Summer International Diploma to Raise Awareness about Sustainability and the Culture of Sustainable Change held at the Academy of Christian Humanism University, and this methodology was equally employed by the instructors during the stay in Germany. Their first days in Chile were characterized by fieldwork carried out by the international group under the coordination of the consulting team at Transformas Chile. There, the students resided in a rural area and took various trips to see firsthand and internalize that country’s socio-environmental realities.

Throughout upcoming months, the international participants will continue working on the Travel Transformation project by organizing activities within their own surroundings. The products developed in Chile, which include various audiovisuals, radio spots, and an animation, will soon be available on the platform that Kolleg KMGNE (the project’s coordinating institution) is currently developing. The products that resulted from the stay in Germany during August can be consulted here.

UMH signs agreements in China with Shenzhen University and the Shenzhen Shuibei International Center of Business


Vice Rector for International Relations at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), Vicente Micol, along with a delegation of representatives from the Diputación de Alicante and business and academic sectors, attended the International Project Matching on Belt and Road Investment and Cooperation for Foreign Countries that was recently held in Shenzhen, China (Canton Province). During his visit, Vice Rector Micol signed an agreement with Shenzhen University and another with the Shenzhen Shuibei International Center of Business. This visit represents part of an agreement that was signed by UMH Rector, Jesús Pastor Ciurana, President of the Diputación de Alicante, César Sánchez, and University of Alicante President, Manuel Palomar.

 

The agreement signed by the Diputación and the public universities from the province of Alicante aims to open both academic institutions to Canton Province and the city of Shenzhen. This is one of China’s most thriving areas, undergoing tremendous economic development, and it is considered the Silicon Valley of China. These activities are intended to form part of the Belt and Road Initiative, which will receive investments from the Chinese government of almost one trillion euros. Likewise, the Diputación representatives presented the projects for the Tren de la Costa (coastal railroad) and the Alicante Port Economic Zone to Chinese construction companies and financial institutions.

During this event, the Alicante delegation visited the Shenzhen Enterprise Confederation (SEC), a group of more than 5,000 businesses in the Shenzhen area. With this in mind, UMH Vice Rector Micol Molina met with the executive president of this institution, Yu Jian, to initiate contacts for collaboration with the UMH Scientific Park and future Elche Technological Campus. Micol also spoke with Qiu Daoyong, the founder of Shenzhen Bay Sci-Tech Innovation Group and individual responsible for the generation of startups and spinoffs, to establish collaboration with the UMH Scientific Park and mobility activities between UMH and Chinese students. While pursuing a similar goal, Micol also visited with the managers of Shenzhen Bay Ecological Science and Technology Park, one of the six technological parks in that city.

The visit then continued at Shenzhen University, where the Alicante delegation met with its Vice President, Du Hongbiao, the director of its Institute of Languages, and that of its Office of International Relations. The UMH presented its academic offer and various possibilities for mobility were examined. Shenzhen University has students possessing basic knowledge of Spanish, and these represent potential incoming students for our university’s mobility and study abroad programs. The Chinese university, prominent in engineering fields, has very few agreements with other Spanish institutions of higher learning. Also attending the meeting was the Consul General of Spain in Canton, Marcos Gómez.

Furthermore, the UMH Vice Rector for International Relations reached an agreement with the International Business Center (IBC) that aims to collaborate in the development of new materials and the search for investment funding for UMH spinoffs and startups.

To complete the visit, the UMH attended a working meeting hosted by the Shenzhen Chamber of Investment, in which a group of 30 chamber member businesses participated. At this meeting, the UMH presented what it has to offer these businesses, which are involved in diverse sectors, such as biotechnology, waste management, agribusiness, hygiene and cleaning products, tourism, fiber optics, aerospace, drone manufacturing, and automation systems.

The visit culminated with the signing of all the agreements between Shenzhen University, the UMH, and University of Alicante. This agreement was signed during the annual dinner gala of the Shenzhen Chamber of Investment.

In addition to UMH Vice Rector Vicente Micol, the Alicante delegation also included the Vice President of the Diputación de Alicante, Carlos Castillo; former President of the Port Authority, Mario Flores; the head of the Presidential Cabinet and leader of the Partido Popular in Alicante, Antonio Peral; CEPYME President, Cristóbal Navarro; and University of Alicante Vice President for International Relations, Juan Llopis.

The Bachelor’s in Audiovisual Communication and the Cinematography Studies at the Fluminense Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) have laid the foundations for future joint collaboration projects to facilitate exchanges of students and faculty between both institutions, both academic and in the field of research.

The program coordinator for the Bachelor’s in Audiovisual Communication, Begoña Ivars Nicolás, along with that program’s area coordinator, Montserrat Jurado Martín, visited various Brazilian universities during the month of December to formalize exchange agreements to facilitate joint projects and study stays for both Brazilian and Spanish students.

Begoña and Montserrat presented the results of the International Student Film Project (ISFP) for the shooting of short fiction and documentary films in an environment of international coproduction, wherein students from at least three universities from different countries collaborate during the month of July on various productions. In particular, the Fluminense Federal University expressed strong interest in joining the ISFP project for upcoming editions.

Moreover, the two academics presented the undergraduate programs of Audiovisual Communication and Journalism, the Master’s in Innovation in Journalism program, the Study Abroad program by the Vice Rectorate for International Relations, and the Miguel Hernández Communication Journal (MHCJ) that is published by the Department of Social and Human Sciences. Their stay was funded by the Support for the Internationalization of Schools, Faculties, and Research Institutes program (AIEFI) organized by the UMH Vice Rectorate for International Relations in collaboration with the Audiovisual Communication and Journalism programs.
