Quando: 19 de novembro de 2019, às 21h30Onde: Com Calma – Espaço Cultural (R. República da Bolívia 5C, Benfica, 1500-475 Lisboa) Convidado: António Góri (Habita! – Associação pelo direito à habitação e à cidade)Moderação: Leonor Duarte (Morar em Lisboa / Academia Cidadã) Os preços da habitação não páram de crescer em Portugal e em toda a Europa. As casas já não são para habitar mas para realizar investimentos financeiros. Muitas pessoas não atribuem a responsabilidade da situação aos governos e aos grupos económicos. Perante a perda, a escassez e a impossibilidade de encontrar uma habitação a preço acessível viram-se contra grupos sociais minoritários que julgam privilegiados ou consideram que a crise é fruto da corrupção generalizada. A precariedade na habitação é uma bomba relógio que favorece os objectivos da extrema-direita: desacreditar o sistema democrático e colocar os pobres contra os pobres. A Iniciativa de Cidadania Europeia “Habitação para Toda a […]

A falta de habitação faz crescer a extrema direita? CONVERSAS #nuncamais


On the third Tuesday every month, the Citizenship Academy will organise the #nuncamais [#neveragain] Talks, with questions based on a prejudice, stereotype or scapegoat theory propagated by neo-fascist movements. At 21h30, the “Com-Calma – Espaço Cultural” in Benfica, Lisbon will host the conversations, which will also be streamed live in our Facebook page by the PTRevolutionTV collective and later converted to podcast. Roma people do not want to integrate? Is “gender ideology” destroying the traditional family? Is Climate Change an invention? Do feminists hate men? Does political correctness limit free speech? These are some of the questions we’ll invite participants to answer. “We want to deconstruct simplistic discourses, that generate fear and hatred, therefore preventing the growth of neo-fascist movements in Portugal”, tells Joana Dias, from the Citizenship Academy. “The first #nuncamais talk will be held the 19th of November 2019. ‘Does the lack of housing contribute to the growth […]

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 […]

70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights What would society be like without non-governmental organisations? What is the relevance of Civil Society for the protection of Human Rights? The 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration is celebrated, but are all human rights guaranteed for all?
