Research & Education

(This section is being updated, since we could not put here yet in a more systemized way our many different research activities and materials. More infos soon!)

One highlight of Antje’s academic reading list in 2020 was the article by Temper, McGarry & Weber (2019) who created a set of archetypes for “scholar-activist ” researchers.

Inspired by their cards, we wish to explore further the characteristics of the slow and care-full scholar (and educator, and student, and any other role we might be currently in).

Sources that inspired this research

Please feel free to download here the preliminary reading list that inspired creating and designing the CareLab for People & Planet and that will be continuously updated along the research.

Furthermore, the CareLab was presented at the International Sustainability Transitions Conference 2021 and at the 4th conference Sustainable Campus within the Portuguese Network Sustainable Campus (Rede Campus Sustentável).

Photovoice Project at NOVA School of Science and Technology

In Summer 2021, the CareLab carried out a photovoice project at our campus about two questions:
What do I do to take care of myself?
– What helps me to take care of the planet?

See and listen the video that compiles some of the answers received!
