We are now entering the second stage of the UOC&PLUGGED challenge where, thanks to participation from you and the judges, we will start to whittle down the best proposals. The fact that we have received over seven hundred ideas shows what we initially suspected: society is a never-ending source of talent and creativity.

To help foster these attitudes and develop their latent potential, we have prepared a series of talks, workshops and lectures from leading figures in the fields covered by UOC&PLUGGED. Our desire is to fill the months of June and July with events that will take place throughout the city: urban acupuncture.

The events are open to everyone. To register, visit Below are some of the events we have planned:
