It is a matter of pride to welcome you to the website of Centre d'Estudis per la Democràcia Jordi Solé Tura, because it is the consolidation of an initiative of Mollet del Vallès that was started years ago and in which Jordi Solé Tura was actively involved, because he was born in Mollet and thanks to him the city was known worldwide.
So with these projects that we have implemented are well stablished: archival work to make available to specialists and researchers the documentary of Jordi Solé Tura; we have done three editions of the Jordi Solé Tura Award for a doctoral thesis on democracy, we have created the Group of Friends of Jordi Solé Tura, and we have published the materials so that they are known. But this is only a part of what we pretend to do and we will show it in the webs.
We want the Centre d'Estudis per la Democràcia to be a powerful virtual centre, because we want to be close to everyone, regardless of where they come from, and receive those people that are not only interested in the life and career of Jordi Solé Tura, but also in its vital legacy: politics as a way of achieving a society more just; the culture as a personal and collective tool for progress, and dialogue as a way for understanding.
Because from Mollet del Vallès we hope to contribute, modestly, to the public debate on the present and future of our society, and at the same time we express publicly our esteem for Jordi Solé Tura and our commitment with values of democracy.
