Welcome to the Jávea U3A Web Site.

The main purpose of the Jávea U3A is to encourage lifelong learning and friendship for those no longer
in full time employment, by providing Educational, Recreational and Leisure Activities for its members.

The Jávea U3A WebSite is the primary source of information about "what's going on" in our Association.  It contains all details of our upcoming events, trips and group activities plus selected local events.  The WebSite is constantly updated with the latest information.

The NewsFEED below contains a concise summary of all the current news items so that you can quickly scan them looking for things of interest to you. Each item contains a link leading to a full description.

Calling Notice   for the General Meeting
to be held on Wednesday 26th September from 9:30.
Meeting starts at 11:00

Why not join us at the General Meeting

Come to the Parador, meet old friends, make new friends. Have a drink or enjoy the gardens and the stunning views. Find out what is going on in the Jávea U3A. Meet the Jávea U3A Committee Members who are working hard to make the Association run as smoothly as possible. The meetings are fun and conclude with a short interesting and often amusing presentation from a special guest. We hope to see you there!

Guest Speaker

This month's guest speaker are Erica Meltzer and Sam Laird  who will talk on The United Nations and Issues in International Trade. What does the UN do? The ins and outs of trade deals. What happens if a country leaves an agreement, as in Brexit, NAFTA or even the WTO?


For more details of the talk and the forthcoming schedule, see speakers.

Executive Committee Candidates

It's that time again, when we have to prepare for the Executive Committee Elections to be held next Spring. The first step is to get Members to stand for the various Committee Roles.
