Building partnerships to improve lives

Official Reception, Monday 6 July 2015, 1930 - 2100 hours

Address: Castelo de S.Jorge

R. de Santa Cruz do Castelo, 1100-129 Lisboa

Telephone: +351 919 356 414

Getting there
The City of Lisbon will provide some buses to take delegates to the castle. These will depart from the conference hotel at 19.00. The drop off point is at the bottom of the castle grounds which means that there is a short uphill walk to get to the Praça d’Armas where the Reception will take place. Please note that the ground is very uneven so we do advise sensible footwear (no high heels!). You are however welcome to make your own way to the venue by taxi which will drop you off just outside the venue. There is disabled access – please contact the conference team directly to organise this.  

Delegates will be expected to make their own way back after the Reception – the centre is a short (downhill) walk away!

Journey Time: 30 minutes

Local showcase: “Fado Dançado” Project
Batoto Yetu Portugal (BYP) is a non-profit youth and culture organization supported by the Luso-American Development Foundation, the Oeiras City Council, Oeiras Child Protection Agency and Caxias School District. It is financed by the High Commissioner for Immigration and Intercultural Dialogue and co-financed through European Structural Funds.

BYP’s philosophy is based on the conviction that despite people’s diverse socio-economic situations, the (re)discovery and appreciation of their cultural roots constitutes a fundamental factor for the consolidation of their self-esteem, sense of belonging and social inclusion.

Dress code: smart
