It is co-financed by the Citizens Ativ@s Program, component of the EEA Grants and managed by the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian and Fundação Bissaya Barreto.
It's main objective is to contribute to the strengthening of democratic culture and citizen awareness in Portugal. Specific objectives of this project are: to promote the strengthening of civil society organizations as political actors and to sensitize and mobilize citizens around the issue of the asymmetries of the national territory.
In this second meeting of the project, 16 people linked to 13 different organizations, contributed to the problematization of limitations on the right to the city. Returning to the problems identified in previous moments, the participants reflected on the difficulty of an increasing number of people in accessing housing in Lisbon.
