The programme, which is part of the XXII international summer-autumn courses of the University of Extremadura, has been carried out since the end of June, over several weeks in July, September and early October in the afternoon in face-to-face and online format to enable the enrolment of more people from Europe and America. Thus, the data reflect the great reception of the proposals offered at Campus Yuste: 213 people have been awarded grants by Yuste Foundation to enrol in the courses; it has had two hundred and nine teachers and more than a thousand students in total from 26 countries, such as Argentina, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Germany, Guatemala, Italy, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Ukraine, United States and Venezuela.

Campus Yuste aims to stimulate debate and reflection by academics, researchers and professionals on the process of European construction and integration, as well as current European issues and other issues related to the history and memory of Europe and Ibero-America.

This edition of the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation’s programme has been composed of eight specialised courses and organised from a multidisciplinary point of view. In this manner, the courses offered were: “Iberian and Transatlantic Cultural Dialogues: The Spirit of the Avant-Gardes, a Century Later”; “Diplomacy in the Worlds of Charles V: Negotiation and Dialogue”; “The Future of Europe: Opportunities on Shared and Global Challenges”; “European Union-Latin America and the Caribbean Relations: A Renewed Agenda and a Programme for Recovery under the SDGs”; “European Citizenship, Identities and Values”; “The Future of Healthcare in Europe and the World: Challenges and Solutions to a Global Challenge”; “Universal Accessibility, Social Inclusion and the Lever of Change Towards Equality”; and “Economic Impact of Climate Change in Latin America and the Caribbean”.

The extensive follow-up of the different presentations through the Foundation’s live broadcast via its YouTube channel must be added to this, which denotes the support for the proposals presented and reinforces the holding of upcoming calls for Campus Yuste.
