Welcome to Centre Placet, an international house for UCLouvain students from partner countries of the Belgian Development Cooperation

Multiple identities and commitment

In a mixed and multicultural world, this group brings together participants who wish to exchange their experiences and set up actions to raise the awareness of a wide public around research and the construction of individual identity. The activities are chosen and carried out freely by the group and can take the form of exhibitions, film screenings or reading of texts during evening events.

North/South and South/South exchange workshops (the video is only in French)

The North/South and South/South exchange workshops offer UCLouvain students from developing countries the opportunity to present a development issue to a wide audience. The workshop is followed by exchanges between the speaker and the audience. Under certain conditions, this activity allows doctoral students to obtain study credits. Admission to these workshops is free.

All public. The speakers are international students registered at UCLouvain.


Introduction to audiovisual tools

The introductory workshops on audiovisual capture and editing are built around one or more social topics, chosen by mutual agreement between participants. Their aim is to develop the participants' critical eye and reflection. The workshops take place over a week of 5 working days or over 5 Sundays depending on requests. Workshops are limited to 8 participants.

Registration is compulsory.


Interfaith dialogue

In order to question and act for a better living together in the town of Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve, a group of participants of all faiths meets several times a year with different actors active on the site (Interfaith Group or Kot-é-Sens, for example). In this context, various activities are organized, such as a "diversity walk" or workshops to create playlets for a forum theatre.


Collective and Citizen actions

Centre Placet organizes, on request, various workshops for reflection and awareness raising for people who wish to carry out collective citizen and solidarity actions aimed at combating societal and/or economic injustices.


Well-being and food choices

These workshops offer the beneficiaries of the solidarity grocery and food parcel distribution to learn how to cook the products on offer in a healthy way. Activities related to well-being and the preparation of organic household products are also the subject of workshops.

For the beneficiaries of food aid from the Centre Placet
