With the theme “The Sustainability Revolution – Are we ready?”, this event in partnership with NOVA SBE, will take place on the 26th of October and will feature speakers from the most varied national sectors. In addition to the in-person guests, there will also be full live broadcasting on the Green Savers website and on social media.

Sustainability has long ceased to be a buzzword. The voices in favor of promoting green stimulus measures aligned with climate goals come from multiple sectors of society and from the most varied fields of action. It's not just about saving the planet. It's also saving our way of life. This will be the motto for the first Green Savers conference.


The 3rd Sustainable Campus Conference (CCS2021) is an event promoted by the Rede Campus Sustentável, Portugal, organized by the Politécnico de Lisboa, which will take place on October 28 and 29, 2021, at the Escola Superior de Tecnologia da Saúde de Lisboa, online.

CCS2021 is a forum for discussion and reflection on the latest advances in research, innovation and practices in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Higher Education Institutions in Portugal and in Portuguese-speaking countries.

Under the theme "SUSTAINABLE CAMPUS: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES", this event also aims to serve as a platform for collaboration and exchange of ideas between students, academics, researchers and specialists, in the search for intelligent and innovative solutions for a more sustainable future.


"The knowledge at the service of classified areas"

From 1st to 4th December, the 20th National Ecology Meeting (20th ENE) returns to its in-person format and wants to take national ecologists to one of the most beautiful places in Portugal, Ponte de Lima. After a pandemic that stopped the world, scientific knowledge proved to be the best way to manage crisis situations. It is urgent to remember that knowledge in ecology is the basis for environmental protection and safeguarding human health. The organization of this congress invites all ecologists to share their knowledge and show how their role is essential for a changing society.

With the theme "Knowledge at the service of classified areas", the scientific committee invites the submission of papers in all areas of Ecology until October 15, 2021.


The Lisbon Library Network launched the Citizens' Laboratory “Pieces of Garden”. The eChanges group of cE3c - Center for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Change participates in this initiative.

Submit your idea until the 24th of October 2021.

Up to two sustainability projects will be selected for the spaces of the future Jardim da Estrela Library, to be developed in a collaborative laboratory at Espaço Ripas - Creative Workshop for 10 days in November 2021.

Projects must have a strong component of reusing materials and promoting inclusion from the perspective of diversity, integration and respect for others.

There is room for any idea that can be designed, built or developed, in a first version or as a prototype, which is carried out in a collaborative way.

The RotasZer0 Project aims to make consumers aware of the importance of agroecological practices. This project aims to inform about the importance of circularity and biodiversity in agricultural systems, namely in the context of waste management practices such as composting.

Around 20 routes will be carried out, from Ponte de Lima to Castro Marim, where, in each one, a small group of local consumers will visit between 2 and 3 agricultural productions.

During the visits, participants will have the opportunity to get to know the producers, their practices and production, recording on video some moments of their Route. The captured images will be edited by the project team, resulting in the realization of:

  • short videos about each of the routes taken;
  • a final documentary, compiling all the information collected on the routes taken.

The RotasZer0 Project is the result of a partnership between TAGIS - Center for the Conservation of Butterflies in Portugal and the Caravana AgroEcológica, and is financed by the Environmental Fund.
