About the author
The promoters of this campaign are the Academic Federation of Porto (FAP) and Magnum Consilium Veteranorum - Academia do Porto .
FAP , founded in 1989, has emerged as a representative representative of the largest Academy in the country. Composed of 27 Student Associations, FAP is the faithful representative of more than 70 thousand students from all subsystems of higher education in Portugal.
“For a Priority in Education” is the main purpose of FAP, which has guided all its activity that is not limited to political action at the level of higher education. We recognize and value the role that young people must play in society and we believe in inclusion, culture and sport as factors of social cohesion.
We believe in a single and cohesive Academy, capable of promoting actions of this kind and where everyone is called to participate, which capitalizes on the academic tradition for the values of inclusion and the common good.
