A quarterly electronic magazine that intends not only to promote the activities developed by AITECOEIRAS - with the goal of divulging the technology clusters, but also to be a sample of what best is made in the county in terms of companies, universities and institutes in the ICT areas and Biotechnology, Health and Tropical technologies.
Oeiras International School and the Portuguese Rugby Federation have established an interesting partnership that allows our students to know more about the energy and charisma that characterizes this sport.
Prémio Infante D. Henrique / Duke of Edingburgh Award is an international social and individual development Programme, targeted to people from 14 to 25 years old. This initiative encourages its participants to be active citizens, with the goal of having a positive impact on society. This will enable the participants to have lifetime learning experiences that will make a difference on themselves, on their communities and on the world.
The Programme exists in more than 100 countries and although the name can vary, its philosophy and basic principles are the same. Until now, more than 6 million youngsters have participated.
At OIS... We have a Gardening Project!
Our garden is a part of an initiative with the International Award in Portugal (Duke of Edinburgh Award) and has been included, along with 5 other schools in a National Project and an International one too. Quite simply, the vegetable and fruit that we produce is given (donated) to poor families in the Barcarena district. Our garden is big enough to feed between 20 to 30 families.
What is really exciting about our garden though is that we are now a listed company and you and I are now able to buy shares in the garden. Our garden here at OIS, for example will now be known to people investing in the Stock Market in Wall Street, USA. Unbelievable!!
You can only buy shares, you can't sell them but what you are doing if you buy shares, is helping feed people in this locality who are in real difficulty. The money invested will be used to finance the garden.
So, at OIS, for example, it can be used to invest in a watering system, a greenhouse, etc. It will allow our garden to produce better quality vegetables and fruit and more of it, which will feed more families.
I have already bought 5 shares (5 shares at Euro 1 each is the minimum that you must buy) to see how the system worked and will be buying more for Christmas. And what a great Christmas present they are. Not only will the recipient of the shares that you buy for them be receiving a present but they will also be giving as well. I'm going to give my wife a Xmas surprise - 25 shares in our garden. She wins, I save money because she wanted a Luis Vuitton bag (Who's he?) and we're both happy.
