Educação ambiental nas escolas

Conselho Nacional de Educação propõe mudanças na abordagem que é feita nas escolas à educação ambiental. Partindo do pressuposto de que a despolitização da discussão dos problemas ambientais não é só um exercício artificial, como também uma forma de desvalorizar esta problemática enquanto “questão cívica”, o Conselho Nacional de Educação (CNE) exorta a que se admita “a inevitabilidade de uma dimensão política da educação ambiental” que é proposta nas escolas. Numa recomendação que foi agora divulgada, aquele órgão de consulta do Parlamento e do Governo frisa que na Estratégia Nacional para a Educação Ambiental 2020, lançada pelo Governo em 2017, “a expressão ‘política’ parece apenas referir-se aos decisores e às medidas do lado do Estado, não sugerindo explicitamente a existência […]

Divisão celular e o cancro

Trabalho de investigação durou seis anos. Acaba de ser identificado um novo mecanismo utilizado pelas células que, ao garantir a correcta distribuição dos cromossomas durante a divisão celular, evita o desenvolvimento de anomalias associadas ao cancro. A descoberta é de investigadores do Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde (i3S), no Porto. Em entrevista à agência Lusa, o investigador Carlos Conde, explicou que o estudo, publicado na revista científica Journal of Cell Biology, destinava-se a “perceber como é que as células, quando se dividem, transmitem correctamente o material genético”. “Queríamos identificar os mecanismos moleculares que garantem que, quando as células se dividem, a separação do material genético ocorre de forma correcta”, disse o investigador do grupo Divisão Celular e Estabilidade […]

Alterações climáticas na Madeira

A especialista alerta que a subida do nível médio do mar promove a erosão de toda a região costeira e uma maior ocorrência de períodos de chuva, que podem depois desenrolar-se em cheias. A ilha da Madeira está “particularmente vulnerável” às alterações climáticas, devido à “maior incidência” de eventos extremos e aos “perigos” associados à subida do nível médio do mar, alertou esta segunda-feira a cientista da ONU Joana Portugal Pereira. “Esta subida do nível médio do mar promove também a erosão de toda a região costeira, eventualmente deslizamentos de terra, e maior ocorrência de períodos de grandes precipitações, que podem depois desenrolar-se em cheias”, explicou Joana Portugal Pereira, numa conferência organizada pela presidência da Assembleia Legislativa da Madeira, no […]

Musical education

I studied in Puolalanmäki Upper Secondary School for three years and graduated in 2018. It’s one of the Upper secondary schools in Turku, which is a city on the southwest coast of Finland. The main reason why I wanted to apply to Puolalanmäki was that the school offers a great music oriented programme. The programme also ended up being the reason why I was motivated to go to school every day. Alongside normal subjects I had a lot of music courses, for example music history, theory, singing lessons and classes on how to express yourself with music and how to get better in performing songs. I was one of the singers in our school’s choir, which consisted of more than […]

Citizen of the EU

I’m proud and happy to be part of EU. Finland joined the EU in 1995 together with Sweden and Austria. It gives me so many opportunities, one of them, which I’m experiencing right now: the European voluntary service. What can I do to help the EU to survive and grow better? An obvious way is voting. It’s important to vote in your own country’s elections, and in EU elections. Decisions and changes made in one country might lead to other countries making the same kind of changes, in better direction. What I really like about EU, is that the borders are open. It makes travelling easy, and motivates me to travel more and see the world. That’s how EU brings […]

Kari Hotakainen

A very well known writer in Finland. Kari Hotakainen started his career as a reporter and became a full-time author in 1996. He has written many novels, poetry books, children’s books, radio dramas, newspaper columns, plays, and one TV-series. He has received some literature prizes for his work, for example, the Finlandia Prize for the novel Juoksuhaudantie (Battle Trench Avenue). The same book was later made into a movie. For me, the most meaningful book written by Kari Hotakainen is Satukirja (Storybook). The book is considered for children and young adults, but I think that it suits all ages. All the stories are very imaginative and different. It is a huge possibility, that after reading one story you become addicted […]
