I Intercultural Seminar at FEUP
May 21st, 2021

To mark the World Day of Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, the Faculty of Engineering of the U.Porto (FEUP), through iPoint – Intercultural Contact Point, joins the Espaço T Association and launches the I Intercultural Seminar of FEUP, to be held on May 21, 2021. In order to promote and share the values of cultural diversity, the session will take place in the FEUP Auditorium, at 16h00, with live broadcast on Youtube FEUPTV channel.

The initiative aims to raise awareness and make known the importance of diversity and inclusion, within the richness of world cultures, as strategic priorities for sustainable growth and development at social and cultural levels.

The first panel of the event, dedicated to “Social Interculturality”, will have the participation of Pedro Calado, Deputy Director of the Gulbenkian Sustainable Development Program, and Cláudia Costa, Head of the Municipal Division of Social Network Management of the Porto City Hall, representing the Project of Municipal and Intercultural Mediators of Porto.

In a second moment, “Interculturality in Higher Education” will be introduced, with the presence of Amélia Lopes, Full Professor of the Faculty of Psychology and Education Science of the U.Porto (FPCEUP), president of the Scientific Council and vice-director of the Center for Research and Educational Intervention of FCPEUP, and Catarina Castro, Assistant Professor of FEUP and Coordinator of Mobility of the Integrated Masters in Mechanical Engineering of the institution. The themes to be addressed focus on the importance of adopting measures to support interculturality through actions that combat polarization and stereotypes, contributing to the enrichment of the academic community.

The initiative ends with the presentation of the Casa do Mundo – Porto Intercultural, a project born from the hands of the Espaço t Association, a space where the richness of heterogeneity shows a differentiating and inclusive character. The “t” means everyone: an open space that uses art as a tool to develop artistic, personal, social, cultural and formative skills, promoting the inclusion of all.

With Casa do Mundo – Intercultural Porto a space is created where a wide range of institutions and associations work with different areas and audiences for interculturality, the inclusion of immigrant communities, the awareness and acceptance of migration and the fight against discrimination and xenophobia.
