Palestras e Seminários
"Há Conversa" is an informal Tuesday afternoon that takes place on the third Tuesday of each month and where guests are in close proximity to the audience in order to enable a 'conversation' with the local population. The aim is to bring people together and speak openly about pressing issues for the environment, citizenship and sustainability by promoting scientific culture latu sensu, environmental awareness, the dynamization of local traditional activities, and many more, in an integrated and interdisciplinary way.
As guests, we have already counted on personalities from various quarters of the community, such as the Mayor of Albergaria-a-Velha, António Loureiro; Prof. Rosa Pinho, curator of the herbarium of the University of Aveiro; the Councillor for Culture, Sport and Tourism of the Albergaria-a-Velha City Council, Dr. Delfim Bismark; the Priest Querubim, from the parish of S. João de Loure e Frossos; Mrs. Delmira Gomes, Vice-President of the DonAldeia Association; the Councillor for Education and Social Action of the Albergaria-a-Velha City Hall, Catarina Mendes; the archaeologists Drs. Paulo Morgado and Sónia Filipe; the researcher and biologist Victor Bandeira, among several others!
Every year, BioLiving organizes the BioFórum, a seminar dedicated to the debate of current and relevant topics that aims to gather the opinion of experts, but also of the community, resulting in a rich and constructive discussion. We intend the BioFórum to also be a platform for the dissemination of innovative projects and a networking space, where participants and speakers can share experiences and ideas and foster collaborative partnerships and the resolution of common problems.
The first edition of the BioFórum, in 2017, was dedicated to Sustainable Forest Management, addressing challenges and opportunities for the Portuguese forest. In 2018, the forum focused on the theme of Active Citizenship and Sustainability, with inspiring associative projects and high environmental and/or social impact. In 2019 the main theme was about Circular Economy, presenting projects and initiatives that promote the sustainable use and reuse of different types of materials.
Every year we hold and participate in dozens of lectures and conferences where we present the Association's work. In addition, we make communications within the scope of some of our projects, as well as on topics related to environmental sustainability and nature protection.
