For the 12th consecutive year, the universities of the Federation Wallonia-Brussels and the Flemish universities (UA, UGent) will mobilise during the month of March 2014 in order to make the university community more aware of North / South relations and the challenges of development.

This year's theme is 'Land'. This theme can be approached from many different angles (the right of access to land, the problem of land degradation, land grabbing, but of course, as well the relationship between the land and the sea... ).

At the Free University of Brussels (ULB), Campus Plein Sud will take place from March 10 to 21. During these two weeks, various activities / events will be organised. The goal is to revive the interest of members of the university community (academics, students, researchers, ...) for the problems of North-South relations.
