Do not miss another issue of RadioActive101 METAS E5G Project in collaboration with Rádio Manobras!
“Young people and the 20th anniversary of ADILO”, broadcast live on April 18, 2015, http://pt.radioactive101.eu/no-ar and http://radiomanobras.pt/ouve/
To celebrate the anniversary of the Integrated Development Agency of Lordelo do Ouro (ADILO), this program included contributions from several people who are a major part of the institution’s history over the past 20 years.
On 21st April 2015 we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Lordelo do Ouro. We heard from various institutions and of the need to develop a different social response to a community marked by great imbalances and vulnerabilities. Since 1995 it has focused its intervention in the creation and promotion of structures and social support services and the design and development of intervention projects in various areas. These include employment and training, psychosocial support for children, youth, adults and families, promoting citizenship and preventing the use of psychoactive substances, etc.
Over the years their work has been fundamental to the implementation of active and innovative methodologies. Currently, ADILO is developing 4 projects (community center de Lordelo do Ouro, METAS E5G Project, RSI Protocol and CLDC) involving a significant amount of the population and local institutions.
We are thrilled to report that RadioActive101 in Portugal has been awarded a very distinguished prize by the FCT, the National Funding Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation. The prize acknowledges the tremendous work by the project team in Portugal and the funding won will now support the expansion of the project in Portugal right through until the end of 2015.
RadioActive is a project financed between 2012 and 2104 by the European Commission through the Lifelong Learning Program aimed at the promotion of engagement, informal learning and employability of at risk and excluded people across Europe through internet radio and social media.
The project is led by the University of East London in the UK, with partners from Wales, Germany, Portugal, Malta and Romania. In Portugal, the project is implemented by CIMJ – Research Centre for Media and Journalism. The Portuguese team, coordinated by Maria José Brites, also includes Sílvio Correia Santos, Ana Jorge, Daniel Catalão, Catarina Navio and António Granado. This award will support the expansion of the project in Portugal in cooperation with the governmental program Escolhas (Choices) throughout 2015.
Our congratulations to the Portuguese team and to all of the European radio-activists who helped make this happen!
We are delighted to report the RadioActive101 Practices publication is now complete (in both PDF and EPUB versions) following consultation with all our partners. The report contains many of the common practices developed and refined by participants and RadioActive researchers across this European partnership over the last two years. And there are several examples of the significant impact felt by some of the individuals who became ‘radio-activists’ along the way.
RadioActive101/Choices Program took part in a workshop discussing the implementation of the project in Portugal. The session was directed towards social workers, teachers and others wishing to implement radio in a non-formal learning context. The workshop promoted an exchange of experiences between the four Portuguese centres that participate in the RadioActive Europe project.
The event took place on 19th November 2014, at Auditório do CNAI, in Lisbon.
