Principal,  “Moise Nicoară” National College, Arad

                              At the end of the previous year, on 7th December 2012, I signed a partnership that is very important for our college regarding further promotion of transdisciplinary methodology in the Romanian system of education and culture. It is the partnership between «TheCentre of Transdisciplinary Applications in Education» from „Moise Nicoară” National College – CATEMNA, coordinated by our teacher, Mirela Mureşan, and the prestigious  Institute for Transdisciplinary Studies in Science, Spirituality, Society – IT4S, coordinated by dr. Magda Stavinschi.

The aim of this partnership is the cooperation between the two institutions in view of rendering efficient the outcome of transdisciplinary education activities and of disseminating them nationally and internationally.

The common activities that are planned to be developed together include scientific and cultural manifestations, popularization activities, professional training, educational activities among students and young people. These activities will promote transdisciplinary principles and values, cooperation for development, and universal respect of human rights and of fundamental liberties for everybody. A necessary frame will be provided for development of creativity in education, culture, science and communication.

We are convinced that common activities conceived and organised within this partnership will significantly contribute to promotion of transdisciplinarity in education, rendering it more valuable.

I would like to thank Ms. Magda Stavinschi for her generous donation offered to the CATEMNA library, consisting of books from the CurteaVeche publishing house. The valuable collection Science and Religion that she coordinates together with the academician  Basarab Nicolescu has given our students and teachers the opportunity of coming in contact with a new system of values „founded on the transdisciplinary dialogue between science, religion, art and society”.
