The global crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has placed our systems under significant stress. Executive leaders had to adapt and use various crisis management tools to take charge of the situation and limit impacts on their operations and key stakeholders.
To assist executives involved in management and strategy planning, IFCU, UNIAPAC and Nordic Foresight have developed the following training program that will introduce participants to the benefits of foresight methodologies, emphasizing horizon scanning, trend assessments, and scenario planning.
With the aim of promoting a deep and thorough reflection on Catholic education, which can give meaning to the educational work of the institutions in the face of the changes that are to come, we invite you to participate in the UC Congress of Catholic Education, "Educating is an act of hope".
It is a space for dialogue on the contributions of education in times of change, to highlight the meaning of Catholic education and inspire young generations in the vocation for education.

Created in very diverse conditions, with a variety of religious sensibilities, our universities also evolve in extremely different contexts. One of the constants of their work, however, is always to question their Catholic identity, which is a matter of constituted traditions as well as of constituent traditions.
