5 Years of Fundação Vasco Vieira de Almeida

15 February, 2023

Fundação Vasco Vieira de Almeida held, on 7 February this year, the celebration of its 5 years in an event that brought together the social, corporate and foundation sector. On this occasion, the intervention of the Fundação Vasco Vieira de Almeida in the Community, in pursuit of education for citizenship, and its impact on the construction of a fairer, inclusive and free society, was shared.

Additionally, the second edition of the Professor Francisco Vieira de Almeida Award, worth 20,000 euros, an initiative in partnership with the Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa, was also awarded at the event. The Awarding Panel, composed by Vasco Vieira de Almeida, António Feijó, Miguel Tamen and José Pedro Serra, selected two entries ex aequo, by Ana Rita Barros Figueira and Tomás Maria Tavares Diniz Neves e Castro. The event closed with an intimate concert by Os Músicos do Tejo.

Vasco Vieira de Almeida took the opportunity to reinforce that "Citizenship is our daily ability to contribute so that problems are solved, it is our daily ability to allow us to come closer to each other and it is our daily ability to give meaning to what it means to live in society. It's an endless battle."
