Manifestações pela Habitação a 22 de setembro


DN, 27 Novembro 2018 O apelo foi feito numa carta aberta às Câmaras, Assembleias Municipais e Juntas de Freguesia de todos os concelhos “diretamente afetados pelos contratos de sondagem e prospeção de gás e petróleo”, nos quais decorre, até hoje, o período de consulta pública referente às licenças para sondagem e prospeção de gás previstas para Aljubarrota (Alcobaça) e Bajouca (Leiria). “É responsabilidade das Câmaras, Assembleias Municipais e Juntas de Freguesia informar e defender a população da existência destes contratos, dos riscos associados às atividades contratualizadas e proteger o território, os recursos naturais e as atividades socioeconómicas”, defenderam hoje as associações ambientalistas. Na carta enviada aos órgãos autárquicos de 15 concelhos (Pombal, Ourém, Soure, Leiria, Marinha Grande, Batalha, Nazaré, Alcobaça, Porto de Mós, Caldas da Rainha, Santarém, Rio Maior, Figueira da Foz, Montemor-o-Velho e Coimbra), os ambientalistas apelam “à tomada de posição pública” contra a exploração de gás e petróleo.

Ambientalistas desafiam 15 autarquias a opor-se à exploração de gás em Alcobaça e Leiria



Oben im Video: Umfrage zeigt – Grüne sind größten Gewinner seit der Wahl, SPD der krachende Verlierer António Luís Santos da Costa ist ein Verlierer. Und als solcher die größte Hoffnung der Sozialdemokratie in Europa.  Im Oktober 2015 verliert Costa mit seiner Partido Socialista die Parlamentswahl in Portugal gegen das konservative Parteienbündnis Portugal à Frente (“Vorwärts Portugal”). Mit einem gewagten Schachzug gelangt er trotzdem an die Macht: Er verbündet sich mit der linken Partei Bloco de Esquerda und den portugiesischen Kommunisten und gründet eine von diesen tolerierte Minderheitsregierung. Es ist eine einmalige Regierungskonstellation in Europa. Und eine, unter der es überraschenderweise in dem einstigen Krisenland wieder aufwärts geht.  Costas Portugal ist damit nicht nur eine ungewöhnliche Erfolgsgeschichte in Europa – sondern auch ein perfektes Vorbild für die sieche Sozialdemokratie in Deutschland. Portugals Sozialdemokratie trotzt der Krise Dabei war Portugal in den vergangenen Jahren ein Land am Abgrund. ANMELDEN UND POLITIK-TEAM FOLGEN Erhalte die […]

Shortfilm In recent years, Lisbon has become one of the European Cities with the larger tourism growth. Each year, 6 million people come to visit the Portuguese capital: 200.000 tourists every day. Tourism brings opportunities in a city heavily hit by global crisis: about 15% of Portugal domestic product and 8% jobs in Portugal, nowadays are related with tourism. But in the meanwhile, the city is basically disappearing: over the last 30 years, Lisbon lost about 300.000 inhabitants, vacancy rate in the traditional centre is over 40%, about 5.000 buildings are disused, and today only 12.000 persons live in the city center. In April 2016, STADSLAB (Urban Design Laboratory of Tilburg University – Amsterdam) organized an international Masterclass on City Making & Tourism Gentrification for professionals and graduates: the urban intervention case-study was focused on Mouraria, one of the oldest Lisbon’s neighborhood. Originated as a 13th century Moorish neighborhood and […]

Documentary + shortfilm + book: Masterclass Tourism & Gentrification



 The common homophobia In this month of Pride, the LGBT community has been affected by the terrorism horror and homophobia — in Orlando 12th June 2016: 50 people died but also a lot of people injured. Our entourage often think it is getting better for this community. This tragic event shows that recent access to equal rights for LGBT does not erase homophobia, on the contrary. Without education of the tolerance and a vision of life where gender would not be the center of education, things will not settle. Citizen Academy invites you to support the LGBT community by participating in various upcoming events on the LGBT causes, as this gathering the 15th June in memory of the victims (Event Facebook). We also expect many of you during the pride march this Saturday, June 18th. We will come out in the streets in the proudest manifestation and visibility of the […]

Synthesis by Igor Marko Photos @ Academia Cidadã and participants of the Master Class   The highly challenging urban regeneration case-study was focused on one of Lisbon’s oldest districts – Mouraria.   Lisbon Masterclass #1 – Exploring Mouraria – site analysis, observation and mapping   Paula Marques, councilwoman for Housing of the Municipality of Lisbon, during the Master Class’s opening   Mouraria originated as a 13th century Moorish neighbourhood and remained a marginal downtown area. Nowadays, parts of Mouraria are affected by tourism, others are still deprived with high levels of migrant population and social housing. Cheap property prices and proximity to other tourist destinations (Alfama, Castelo) raise realistic assumptions that Mouraria will face large influx of investment in real estate and tourism infrastructure, resulting in gentrification.   Field trip to historic centre of Lisbon, promoted by Lisbon Sustainable Tourism   Lisboa Masterclass # 2 – Methods and Processes – […]

Master Class “City Making and Tourism Gentrification”


The film will be screaned with the support of Center for Responsible Travel.     The environmental impact of tourism is the main discussion topic, of our 4th session of Cine Café Turistificação (Cine Café Touristification), to take place in May 17 at 21h30, at the bar Lisboa Vadia, in Lisbon. The Goose With the Golden Eggs, a film produced by the Center for Responsible Travel, examines the environmental impact that resort and cruise tourism brings to the communities living in the Pacific Coast, Costa Rica. With an increasing number of private investments in these areas, as it is the case of the privatization of beaches or the construction of big multinational hotels and gated communities, this documentary’s main goal is to portray the difficulties the population of the Pacific Coast face in order to have access to resources like water (used mainly to “feed” pools and golf courts), access to the […]
