The kings have met at the Palacio de la Zarzuela with the members of the Board of Trustees of the Spanish Committee Foundation of the United World Schools, as well as with the sponsors of their scholarships and the scholarship students in the last edition.
United World Colleges (UWC) is a global educational movement that seeks to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.
