Na sociedade do século XXI o clima deve ser considerado numa perspetiva bottom-up ou top-down? - Monteiro, Ana
This contribution discusses the reasons why despite the persistently interrogations about what will be the real weight of our role, our choices and our lifestyles on the results / answers of the climate system that we watch daily, we are not yet sufficiently responsive to its intrinsic variability and especially to its natural impulsiveness.Supported in the vast information available it seems obvious to conclude that one of the reasons of the failure is due to the deep climatological illiteracy severely degraded by the systematic adoption of a top-down approach instead of the bottom-upnin all explanations that seek to justify the...

Studies on the Douro Demarcated Region (DDR) usually focus on its landscape, its wines and especially on Port wine. However, there is also an exceptional economic, social, cultural, architectural and winegrowing heritage that justified its distinction as World Heritage.Despite the region#8217;s unquestionable potential and attractions, the obstacles to its development are manifold, including physical aspects but above all anthropic ones, amongst which we can mention an aged local population in decline, the lack of workers, or poor land use structure of the farms.

Today, the use of still and moving images are present in the Geography lessons of student-teachers in...
