Transformers

Transformers is a Global Movement of people who make a difference through what they love to do.
What Is The Transformers Movement?

Transformers is a Global Movement of people who make a difference through what they love to do. We were born with eyes fixed on the world, with a very open heart, and with an indomitable will to participate, collaborate, and transform.

It is our goal to connect talented people to young people in different communities across the country for at least9 months. These talented people become mentors for these young people, who gain a reference figure and the opportunity to learn and practice something that they love for at least 9 months. At the end of the program, each young person is challenged to use the talent he/she has learned to transform his community. When this mission is accomplished, the young person officially becomes a transformer - someone who uses what he/she most likes to do to foster positive transformation in society.

Among us, you will find b-boys, skaters, poets, musicians, dancers, footballers, chefs, programmers, painters, fighters, chess players, actors, illustrators, cyclists, explorers, tennis players, inventors, and much more.

The founders:

João Rafael Brites, Nova SBE’14

António Mesquita

Harriet Smith, University of Vienna’21

Who are the poorest and most vulnerable? And what are the options to endure the very cold winter that is coming?

In this 5th episode of the Zona de Impacto podcast, we talk about poverty in Portugal, which has increased in the pandemic, and energy poverty. This subject will be felt again this winter in a significant way in the homes of many Portuguese due to the bad thermal conditions and the vertiginous rise of energy prices. Listen to the analysis by Nova SBE Economics Professor Susana Peralta, together with students and researchers Mariana Esteves and Catarina Pintassilgo

Populism: Will it stay in lockdown?

In periods of economic distress, politicians who find scapegoats for the current situation are usually acclaimed by citizens that once might have felt discouraged to vote. However, the rhetoric used works as an attempt to divide the population into native members and non-native members and minorities (cultural populism); honest members of the working class and big business owners (socio-economic populism), and victims of corruption and politicians (anti-establishment populism).

THE CHOICES OF

Zona de Impacto: Mentalities evolved; however, women are still discriminated in the job market. Why?

Statistics are known. Women have a higher qualification rate than men, but they receive less (for the same jobs) and are more precarious. When it is time to reach roles of responsibility, they have a harder life (and, as the companies get bigger, the worse it is). The topic is old, solutions take a long time to produce effects, and this worries the youth. Marta Everard and Rita Mendes, students at NovaSBE and members of the club Women on Board, explain how they perceive their labor’s future
