The UAB Festa Major's slogan this year is "Climate Emergency: the UAB Acts!". As in previous years, the FM slogan forms part of a set of actions prepared by the whole of the university community (students, PAS and PDI) to convert climate emergency into the focus of interest of academic, research and student participation activities.

Ready to play Tabú?
Are you familiar with the game Tabú? How would you fare playing in a different language? Visit the Community Involvement stand from 3p.m. to 5p.m. and demonstrate how many words you can say in a limited amount of time and how many new words you can discover.
Words are the driving force behind change!
This year the university invites its students to act and step up to the fight against climate change. The UAB is committed to adding its grain of sand in making change possible and invites students to propose changes to politicians who can act and promote more sustainable universities. You can do it in the language of your choice! Visit the Languages Service stand at the Plaça Cívica on FMUAB and leave a message in our envelope.
