description of organisation

Associação Viver Telheiras – Centro de Convergência de Telheiras is a non-profit, non-governmental organization which facilitates community dynamics in the neighborhood of Telheiras, in Lisbon, interconnecting local population, institutions and economic activities’ interests and needs.

Our regular activities and action are divided in several (interconnected) projects:
-“Parceria Local de Telheiras” (Local Partnership) is a community network that encompasses 20 institutions (non-profits, local authorities and privately owned socially oriented institutions), who work together by sharing information, developing new projects together and organizing events. It is also worth noting that the “Parceria Local de Telheiras” network is being implemented in partnership with a PhD action-research project.
-“Viver Telheiras” (Living Telheiras) is a web-based communication platform, composed of a website and a facebook page, in which news about the neighborhood are shared with the population.
-“Comércio de Telheiras” (Telheiras’ Retail) is a project, co-promoted with another non-profit and local authorities, which aims to stimulate local businesses and local economy, and also contributing for the association’s financial sustainability.

All these activities and projects are aimed at achieving a better overall quality of life of tour main target group, the local population of Telheiras's neighborhood.
