BUSTA: Building Skills Through Training Therapy Animals

BUSTA's final conference will host a networking lunch and a viewing of the project's documentary, and findings.

Thursday 22nd February, 13:00-15:00 CET

The final conference will share the project's activities and findings. The event will include a lunch, as well as a viewing of a documentary realised throughout the project's run.



In order to adapt educational processes to the challenges of the 21st century, schools need to rely on innovative and practical methods, involving students in challenging activities and combining new educational needs with existing educational curricula aimed at creating active, inclusive and responsible citizens. In order to put this approach forward, transversal skills need to be fostered in the school ecosystem to allow a more transdisciplinary, learner-centred and challenge-based approach. Therefore, teachers and school personnel need to reinforce the development of key competences. With the BUSTA project students will have the opportunity to have real life impact that goes beyond the boundaries of the school, on the lives of persons with disabilities: they will develop research and cooperative actions to integrate service animal training.
