Call for applicants for the

Intensive Programme on Cultural Integrated Landscape Management for Sustainable Development and Global Understanding

9-18 March, 2016

Mação,Auditório Elvino Sequeira, Portugal

The main theme of the intensive programme in 2016 is Social Matrices. Yet all the remaining topics remain under consideration. Essays should include reference case studies, namely on social matrices and sustainability dilemmas.

The topic of social matrices refers to the fact that most knowledge transfer across generations, i.e. education, is conveyed through basic organic structures in society (e.g. families, schools, associations, churches, etc.). Tese make together a complex matrix of social networks that differ from one society or culture to another. Today, most of these structures are experiencing a severe crisis, which affects significantly the resilience of societies and leads, potentially, to the loss of acquired knowledge.

This topic will be particularly discussed as part of a collaborative project with CIMT (the Middle Tagus Inter-municipal Community), focusing on issues like culture and social inclusion, ageing, knowledge and socio-cultural transformations or quality management of cultural heritage.

The IP is open to 3rd year undergraduates, Master and PhD students from the partner institutions of APHELEIA, and is worth 10 ECTS. Each university selects its own students considering at least the following criteria: cursus results so far, motivation letter,complementary CV data, language preparation (English + another EU language at least).

Students from other Universities may also apply, but will not be eligible for financial support.
