Summer Term 2022
With the official launch of the CareLab on 02/02/2022, we start the first agenda about the CareLab’s initiatives planned for the months February – June 2022. A few activities are specifically directed at the community of NOVA School of Science and Technology / FCT NOVA, but others can be joined by anyone interested.
Due to stormy weather forecast, the Deep Time Walk – planned for the Earth Day 2022, was postponed to 04 May 2022.
Join us for a walk of a different kind…
Have you ever noticed life around you? Have you ever thought about your life on this planet? In Deep Time Walk we will dive into the story of the Earth and travel across the 4.6 billion-year timeline at a rate of one million years per step. Starting at the formation of the solar system and the creation of Earth, Deep Time Walk covers significant events in Earth’s deep history, including the formation of the Moon, plate tectonics, the early evolution of life, dinosaurs and much more. The walk will put into context humanity’s rich ancestral heritage and give you an insight into the interconnectedness of all life.
This walk allows gaining new reflections about Planet Earth and the global climate emergency. Furthermore, it can surprise us about the place where we are working, studying and/or living, connecting us to the land in a different way we might be used to and discover new miracles at our footsteps.

The CareLab joins forces with researchers from CENSE to experiment with participatory methods and co-creation on campus. Here you can access the project’s presentation prepared for an internal competitive call for inter-and transdisciplinary research. Currently, we are in the preparation phase.
The outreach event is expected to take place at the end of September 2022.
