Location


The workshop will be held at Instituto Geográfico do Exército (IGeoE) in Lisbon. See the map at the end of this page for the location of IGeoE (blue pinmark).

Workshop: will be held at the British Council in the central area of Lisbon. The address, if you need to ask directions, is:

British Council
Rua Luís Fernandes, 1 - 3
1249-062 Lisboa

Since most of the participants are staying in the Parque das Nações area, there will be a bus ready at Hotel Olissippo Oriente at 8 AM to take everyone to the Workshop. In the afternoon there will be no bus back to Parque das Nações, we believe that most people will take advantage of being in the old part of Lisbon, and go sightseeing.

One way of going back to Parque das Nações from British Council is by subway. From "Rato" to "Oriente" you will have to change lines. Check out the subway network diagram here.

The British Council is marked on the maps bellow with a blue pinmark. The second map shows the details of the streets between the Rato subway station (blue train in a tunnel) and British Council.


Meeting: will be held at the facilities that the Instituto Português da Juventude (IPJ) has in Parque das Nações. The address, if you need to ask directions, is:

Instituto Português da Juventude
Via de Moscavide 47.101
Parque das Nações
Lisboa

If you are staying in the Parque das Nações area, it is a 10 minute walk from Oriente subway station. See the map at the end of this page for the location of IPJ (yellow pinmark) and the details of the streets between Oriente and IPJ.
