Project Brama

Introduction

Bramar {portuguese verb} = roar, howl

Project Brama is a learning platform, sharing information through several pathways.

Despite arising within an Environmental Conservation association, the scope of the Project being broader, disclosing topics related to different areas of knowledge.

Encouraging critical thinking and providing citizens with tools to enable them to make informed decisions – this is Brama.

Objectives

The objective of Project Brama is to communicate Science and Culture in a simple informal, but rigorous way, promoting meetings between those who know and those who want to know more.

We believe that knowledge sharing is easier when available to the entire population. So our effort is to make apparently complex topics accessible to anyone, in order to promote a more enlightened social conscience and to be able to look at our world through different perspectives.

Our commitment is to educate, clarify and stimulate an informed critical thinking, assuming that there are no barriers when a desire to learn and teach is present. 

Mission

Why? To facilitate understanding and contact with areas of knowledge within Science and Culture, enlightening citizens in favor of a more informed social awareness.
