25 years of Internacional Cooperation

The ”la Caixa” Foundation’s International Cooperation programme has been joining forces with the main organisations and foundations for the last 25 years in order to share knowledge and resources that will allow them to have a greater impact and be more sustainable, transforming the lives of thousands of people. To celebrate this with you, we have set up some extra special actions that we’ll be revealing over the course of the year.

Event to celebrate 25 years of International Cooperation

On Friday 1 July we’ll be holding an event to celebrate 25 years of the International Cooperation programme from 12 to 2 pm at CosmoCaixa. An event that will see hugely important speakers, with whom we’ll reflect on the present and the future of international cooperation in two panel discussions focussed on the challenges of development and global health. All of this shares one common goal: to keep on changing lives.
