MODSCAPES at ASTROCAMP 2018

In August 8th, 2018, the Landscape Observatory – a CEAA collaborative project – was present at the Astrocamp 2018 – Summer school, an initiative of the Planetarium of Porto – Centro de Ciência Viva, in partnership with the Center of Astrophysics of the University of Porto and the support of the Municipality of Paredes de Coura. In addition to several sessions dedicated to astronomical observation with naked eye and with telescopes, a series of public lectures was also held that allow Portuguese and foreign youth to become more involved with the local community. Thus, with the participation of the architect Isabel Matias, CEAA researcher, in a night talk, the students got to know better the landscape of the Terras de Coura and the history of the Agricultural Colonies of Vascões, Portugal, and also the European project MODSCAPES – Modernist Rural Lanscapes
