On 20 February, coinciding with the exhibition “Living in the Mediterranean”, the RehabiMed project was presented at La Salle School of Architecture (Universitat Ramon Llull) as part of the talk by Xavier Casanovas and Montserrat Villaverde on Mediterranean Architecture: the Legacy of Tradition. On 11 March, the project was presented at the EPSEB in the lecture “International Rehabilitation Activity: the RehabiMed Project”, by Xavier Casanovas and Ramon Graus. These activities to publicize and disseminate RehabiMed denote universities’ growing interest in promoting rehabilitation and their social commitment to cooperation. Further education institutions are gradually introducing their students to the real potential and results that can be achieved in these sectors and our large common territory.
Project director Xavier Casanovas presented the interventions of RehabiMed, with particular emphasis on the importance of social cohesion in all the activities carried out and the promotion of an ongoing, integrative approach to this heritage, placing inhabitants and their needs, rather than strict heritage preservation, at the centre of analysis and interventions.
