Marta de Sousa e Silva
Membership activation, DCSs (local groups) & cooperation with movements
Lawyer and recruiter at Amnesty International - from Cascais
Grateful for the opportunity to be in touch with members and with associative movements and organisations, especially at a time when civil society feels so alien to the political process.
Events and campaigns
Anthropologist, translator and collaborator in art projects as a freelancer - from Lisbon
I believe in grassroots democracy, achieved through the empowerment of individuals and groups
Creativity and campaigns
With an artistic background, I’m a sound director and teacher - from Oeiras
I have 3 daughters and, serving as an example to them with this volunteering, I want to extend to them the concept of “WE”: from the family to the inhabitants of the Earth (and some great ambitions are worth it). With dialogue, imagination and without fear of trying, I want to creatively help the movement to grow.
Contact with partners in Portugal; GNDE contact point within Portugal with scientists and academics
Environmental Engineer - from Parede
I want to participate actively in a movement at European level that corresponds to the destruction of austerity policies and the end of impunity of banks and institutions responsible for the economic crisis. DiEM25 meets these expectations.
Events and campaigns
Nurse and teacher – from Porto
I saw in first line the devastating effect of austerity during the crisis times, the prevalence of financial interests over human value. I did not hesitate to join and contribute to DiEM25 when I first heard of it namely due to its aims of unite for the values of solidarity, humanism, transparency, ecology, the fight against established powers and, very importantly, focusing on grassroots democracy.
Contact between the CC - NC and general support
Collaborating with NGOs, translator, proofreader, conflict mediator- from Lisbon
Creating bridges, dialogue and grassroots democracy are my motivation to join DiEM25 and to keep on putting most of energy in this project daily.
Contact with civil society
Communication and international relations professional - from Porto
I have a particular interest in areas related to education, migration, gender equality and organic food.
Volunteer Coordinator and Portuguese GNDE coordinator of the GNDE (Green New Deal Europe)
Medical and biomedical science student and activist from Marinha Grande
I am Portuguese, but at the same time European, in my opinion one does not exist without the other. I have had the opportunity to see and live throughout Europe and there are few systemic problems that we face that can be solved with a purely national approach. As a habitable planet we only have one, I have a great attachment to this Earth that we have, but which we have destroyed in the name of excessive greed and capitalist short-sightedness!
Cláudia Maria Borges
Communication & Diversity
Journalist. Specialist in public relations and communication - from Lisbon
I believe in the power of a stronger and unified Europe, where every single human being is equal and has the same rights. It's our social responsibility to contribute to a positive change in Europe, a solid, plural and cultured Europe. I want to be part of it and add my contribution in DiEM25!
Social media support
Accounting and administration student - from Lisbon
In this fragile situation in which Europe and its institutions find themselves, all help is welcome. I joined in for that, wishing to contribute in some way. More democracy and transparency are needed for a prosperous future in Europe.
