BLUE BOW CAMPAIGN April 1st to 30th Location: Lagos Municipality Org .: CPCJ – Commission for the Protection of Children and Youth of Lagos The Blue Ribbon Campaign started in 1989 in Virginia, USA, when a grandmother, Bonnie W. Finney, tied a blue ribbon to her car’s antenna as a way of alerting the curious who questioned her about the ills. treatments suffered by his granddaughter, who had already brutally killed his grandson. Why blue? Because, despite being a beautiful color, Bonnie Finney did not want to forget the beaten and bruised bodies of her two grandchildren. Blue would serve as a constant reminder of her struggle to protect children from abuse. This story, in addition to demonstrating how the concern of a single citizen had an effect on awakening the consciences of the general public, became universal, giving rise to a campaign for the Prevention of Child Abuse, to which the National Commission for Promotion of the Rights and Protection of Children and Youth (at national level) and the Commission for the Protection of Children and Youth in Lagos (at the local level) have come together, with the aim of raising awareness of the care and protection of children.

Considered the biggest manifestation of faith south of Fatima, the Festa da Mãe Soberana returns, after the 2020 edition was not held due to the risk of spreading the new coronavirus. This year, with the ongoing lack of definition, the event will take place in a different format, without a procession, with most of the initiatives taking place at the Sanctuary and transmitted on digital platforms. Thus, from April 4 to 18, pilgrims will be able to experience this cult in cyberspace, through a religious and cultural program. In this edition, the image of Nossa Senhora da Piedade will not remain for fifteen days in the city of Loulé. You will leave your little Chapel just to stay, in the period between the two festive moments, a few meters away, in the sanctuary next door. In keeping with tradition, the celebrations will begin on April 4, Easter Sunday, the day that marks the Small Party. But this time, at 17:00, the Men of Andor will place the Image of Nossa Senhora da Piedade in the Sanctuary, where the solemn Easter Mass will take place. It is from there that, between April 5 and April 16, at 9:00 pm, the recitation […]

THE “NEW” OLD Opening: Maria Salomé Pais Panel: Pedro Pita Barros, Maria João Valente Rosa, Rodrigo A. Cunha Moderator: Alexandre Quintanilha Today we live more years and we also live better, with more quality. The investigation tries to understand the reasons for longevity and seeks to expand it, to limits that we did not anticipate. The advancement of age is accompanied by an increase in chronic pathologies, because “old age never travels alone”, which carries social costs and responsibilities, namely for future generations. People come to the end of “official” working time with physical and intellectual capacities that can be used in their social value. Thus, society has to find spaces, which it has not yet thought about, to integrate the “new old people”. The Meetings with Society seek to promote reflection on collective responsibility in ways of valuing the elderly through their active, qualified and experienced contribution to the tasks of the present and to think better about the future. Access is free, but subject to registration. Zoom access data will be sent by email. You can register here: https://forms.gle/mr2VBAUkJUjDuCnE8 The session will also be broadcast through the Academy of Sciences YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/academialx – The Lisbon Science Academy […]
