Students and teachers from the Degree in Criminology at UCJC present a project against animal cruelty at the European Commission

The Department of Criminology and Security at Camilo José Cela University, part of the School of Communications and Humanities, took part in the new cultural and strategic project for Europe called “New European Bauhaus”, through its Criminology and Security Student Research Group (GEICS). Students and teachers from the Degree in Criminology and Security from UCJC presented a project to fight against animal abuse to the European Commission, and in this way promoting biodiversity and protecting our at risk ecosystems.

The New Bauhaus is an environmental, economic and cultural project whose objective is to contribute to the fulfilment of the European Green Deal. Because wildlife crime has increased by around 6%, respect for animals is a value that needs to be promoted in society. In addition, it is extremely urgent to preserve nature, as the climate continues to be an imminent risk as global cooperation weakens.

This initiative also shows the commitment of Camilo José Cela University to solving the climate emergency and, particularly, raising awareness among young people and students as part of the curricular programme.
