  • A obra analisa duas vertentes complementares que caracterizam a cadeia de valor agroalimentar: fundamentos e estudos de caso.
    As trajetórias multissetoriais dos 11 coautores desta obra, conferem ao livro, uma assinatura capaz de clarificar, desmistificar e definir as tendências agroalimentares em Portugal.
    O aumento das preocupações demonstradas com a agricultura, biodiversidade, bem-estar e alimentação, aliadas às exigências provenientes da alteração dos padrões de consumo que os portugueses vêm dando sinais, e à reduzida produção literária relacionada com o setor agroalimentar e silvo pastoril, constituíram o ponto de partida que motivou a edição deste livro.
    O objetivo deste livro é analisar e refletir sobre diferentes realidades de consumo dentro do setor, orientando os seus profissionais para um melhor entendimento das realidades e consciencializar para a necessidade de repensar a felicidade e as emoções que envolvem a agricultura e a alimentação.

  • The second edition of Right to Remember incorporates some small revisions into the original publication. Since it was first published (in 2014), Right to Remember has been widely used, by both Roma and non-Roma youth groups. The response has been almost overwhelmingly positive, but inevitably there have been some suggestions for clarification, amendments, or inclusion of additional material. Certain groups or individuals working on the Roma Genocide have also been kind enough to respond to a call for feedback on the publication.

    Right to Remember is a self-contained educational resource for all those wishing to promote a deeper awareness of the Roma Genocide and combat discrimination. The handbook is based on the principles of human rights education, and places remembrance as an aspect of learning about, through and for human rights.

    Strengthening the identity of Roma young people is a priority for the Roma Youth Action Plan of the Council of Europe. This implies the creation of an environment where they can grow up free from discrimination and confident about their identity and future perspectives, while appreciating their history and their plural cultural backgrounds and affiliations.

    The Roma Genocide carried out before and during the Second World War has deeply impacted on Roma communities across Europe and plays a central role in understanding the prevailing antigypsyim and discrimination against Roma. Learning about the Genocide is very important for all young people. For Roma young people it is also a way to understand what was perpetrated against their communities, and to help them to com to terms with their identity and situation today.

    Involving young people, including Roma youth, in researching, discussing and discovering the meanings of the Roma Genocide is a way to involve them as agents and actors in their own understanding of human rights and of history.

    Right to Remember includes educational activities, as well as ideas for commemoration events, and information about the Genocide and its relevance to the situation of the Roma people today. It has been designed primarily for youth workers in non-formal settings, but it will be useful for anyone working in education, including in schools.

  • Promoting young people's access to social rights as a means for their inclusion and participation in society!

    In and around many cities, social and economic imbalances have led to the development of disadvantaged neighbourhoods, where diversity is also accompanied by poverty and often marginalisation or exclusion. This is sometimes combined with different forms and levels of de facto social segregation, discrimination and violence.

    At times of economic and social crisis, feelings of powerlessness and anxiety about the future risk deepening local tensions and underlying conflicts. Young people are often at the centre of these tensions because they are more vulnerable and insecure, and because they are more directly affected by uncertainties regarding the development of their autonomy, as well as participation in society and contribution to its development.

    The Council of Europe has challenged itself to respond to these situations by adopting recommendations for its member states that encourage and support them in finding adequate policy responses to situations of exclusion, discrimination and violence affecting young people in disadvantaged neighbourhoods. In early 2015, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted a policy recommendation with proposals for policy measures to member states in order to promote access to social rights for young people.

    Proposals concern:
    - the provision of accessible, affordable public services;
    - overcoming segregation;
    - promoting the participation of young people;
    - combating discrimination;
    - recognition of youth work and non-formal education;
    - promoting gender-sensitive approaches to the elaboration of youth policies.

    This publication is an accompaniment to this recommendation, and aims to bring its content closer to policy makers, youth work practitioners, youth organisations and youth workers, and provide step-by-step information and guidance on the implementation of the recommendation. The publication also offers advice and examples of actions to take and policies to develop so that the social rights of young people are taken seriously by all the actors concerned by social inclusion and social cohesion.
