On the third Tuesday every month, at 21h30, in the Com Calma – Espaço Cultural (Benfica), we’ll launch new questions, based on a prejudice, stereotype or scapegoat propagated by neo-fascist movements.  “#neveragain (#nuncamais)Talks” are the first of many initiatives of the “#neveragain campaign”, thought and designed to fight the growth of the far-right in Portugal.  Join us to reflect, discuss and find strategies to deconstruct discriminatory, xenophobic and simplistic discourses.  All conversations will be streamed live in our facebook page by the PTRevolutionTV collective. You can also hear the episodes on podcast.  19th December 2019  Does the lack of housing contribute to the growth of the far-right?  Invitee: António Góri (Habita! – Associação pelo direito à habitação e à cidade) Moderator: Leonor Duarte (Morar em Lisboa / Academia Cidadã)  10th December 2019  Are refugees invading us?  Invitee: Miguel Duarte (HuBB – Humans Before Borders) Moderator: João Labrincha (Academia Cidadã)  21st January 2020  […]

República da Bolívia 5C, Benfica, 1500-475 Lisboa) Em Março de 2019, Portugal assistiu a um debate público, alimentado por falsas acusações e desinformação, sobre a endoutrinação de ideologias de género causada pelas formações do Projecto Educação LGBTI nas escolas básicas e secundárias em Portugal. O Estudo Nacional sobre o Ambiente Escolar, do ano lectivo anterior, revela que 61,1% das pessoas inquiridas afirma ouvir comentários homofóbicos na escola “de forma regular ou frequente” e três quartos dos estudantes afirmam que nunca assistiram a uma abordagem positiva sobre questões LGBTI nas aulas.No início do ano lectivo 2020/21 convidámos Tavares da Rede Ex Aequo para conversarmos sobre os 14 anos deste projecto educativo, o impacto desta formações e os desafios atuais.Vens conversar connosco?

Formações LGBTI em escolas subvertem as crianças? CONVERSAS #nuncamais



Quando: 20 de outubro de 2020, às 21h30Onde: Com Calma – Espaço Cultural (R. República da Bolívia 5C, Benfica, 1500-475 Lisboa) Moderação: FumaçaConvidado: Paulo Pena, jornalista do Diário de Notícias Há uma fábrica de mentiras e, dentro dela, um processo organizado para falsificar ou manipular intencionalmente aquilo que deveriam ser notícias. Não são, de facto. Fake news não são notícias, nem enganos. Em tempo recorde, o termo que antes descrevia um fenómeno de redes sociais tornou-se num clichê jornalístico e numa arma de arremesso político. O seu potencial de desinformação passou a atingir milhões de pessoas quando os seus produtores perceberam o quão facilmente podiam lucrar com isso: plataformas com o Google e o Facebook continuam a pagar uma verba em publicidade por cada clique que uma notícia falsa tem, alimentado o negócio de dinheiro fácil. E, à boleia dos algoritmos, a ficção viaja sem fronteiras. Desinformação, spin e enganos […]

Looking Back: No Day Without Us – 70 Years of Human Rights – 10th December


Rabat, Malta| 22nd- 28th April 2019 DESCRIPTION Life on a screen: Understanding Millennial Training Course will be addressing the gap which exists between young people and Youth Workers working within the non-formal sector of education. Young people are being brought up in an environment which is fast, instant and customizable. Therefore, they are being used to environments which are constantly engaging and stimulating. When young people are given something which is less attractive and engaging they have the tendency to turn back to their smart phones. It is very difficult for youth workers to compete with such environments where young people are continuously being stimulated. Therefore, the best way forward is not to compete, but to learn from what is happening on social media and adapt these characteristics and infuse them in the working methods used by youth workers. The Millennials are those born after 1985, thus they grew up in […]
