The Global Platform for Syrian Students will organise an International Workshop on “Setting up a Rapid Response Mechanism for Higher Education in Emergencies to deliver more, better and faster”, initially scheduled for 2nd December, has been postponed to January 20, 2020 at the same venue, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, in Lisbon, Portugal.
We apologise to those of you who have already booked for the Workshop. We very much hope to see you on the new date, Monday, January 20. Come and join us to help advance the agenda of higher education in emergencies!
The Rapid Response Mechanism for Higher Education in Emergencies (RRM) will be featured at the Paris Peace Forum (PPF) to be held in Paris from 11th to 13th November 2019 at la Grande Halle de La Villlette, in Paris, together with about a hundred of creative governance projects from around the world.
The platform Português mais Perto, a partnership between Camões, I.P. and Porto Editora, has dozens of interactive lessons to teach the language, allowing the student to learn autonomously, or as a second option, the student will have the support of a tutor. It has two possibilities: Portuguese Mother Tongue, for students who have studied in Portugal and have the goal to go back to school in Portugal, and Portuguese as Heritage Language, for students who have always studied abroad.
