Abstract: At UOC we critically engage with the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals which are embedded in our Strategic Plan. As SDG 4 proposes, we strive for educating global citizens. At the same time and in the framework of our Open Knowledge Action Plan we wish to convert our institution in a more porous university with stronger relationships with society. To contribute to both these goals we set up a pilot project called "Participatory Final Works" which offers students the opportunity to realise their thesis together with a civil society organisation on real social challenges. Presentation of the project at the ICDE Lilelonglearning Summit which took place in Lillehammer, Norway from 11 to 13 February 2019.
