Tavira finds in tourism an important component of its economic tissue, but also has in its environment a factor of economic richness, associated to biological production, namely, the excellence of its agricultural, fishing and shellfish production. José Manuel do Carmo, Project Coordinator
The capacity to attract visitors has depended, largely from the quality image of its landscape, natural spaces and the richness and specificity of its biodiversity.
Moreover, by the colours given by traditional activities and the flavours of gastronomy rooted in popular culture, based in the local land and sea activities.
Project Rio begins a communication process of a new type. It considers scientific culture as the competence of a community to participate in relevant issues in an informed way at several levels, both, individual and organizational. Project Rio begins a communication process of a new type. It considers scientific culture as the competence of a community to participate in relevant issues in an informed way at several levels, both, individual and organizational.
An innovative experience of communication and collective reflection within the community over an important issue for its development, that make possible participative elaboration by the several stakeholders/actor: citizens and their organizations, political decision makers, scientists and technical experts, enterprises and cultural and academic institutions, in the building up of a vision that might allow a road map to medium term action plan.

Project Rio aims… …To initiate a public debate around the river, equating problems, potentialities and projects and turn these into community heritage, opening trails for the future. …To make recognizable the global context that makes the river a protagonist. …To highlight the river as the key element that articulates past and future, the economic activity with knowledge and the environment.

The Project will focus in the search for understanding on the ways how economic development might articulate with environmental qualification.
We will look forward to promote the river as an object of collective reflection, considering its role as a leisure but also a living space needing qualification and the consideration of potentialities to raise opportunities of work and rent. empowering the cooperation and reflexion among the local agents by the communication and sharing of the different visions in the search for common understandings and agreements in essential processes. acquisition of pertinent information, research and reflection. to collect experiences, good practices, and innovative strategies. Exigency and accuracy that characterize scientific production. a wide and interested involvement of the population in a fertile debate as the practice of a democratic society oblige.
In summary, the development of a multidisciplinary and multiparticipated reflection aiming at building a socially shared understanding, articulating communication in science with citizen participation in the reflection around a local meaningful issue.
Operational actions/Land marks 1. Survey of Science Communicators and contributing stakeholders. Identification of existing scientific research around topics associated with the river. Identification of existing interests, ideas and projects related to the river. Identification of persons that might bring key contributions. Promotion of knowledge mobility and potentiating partnerships able to produce new knowledge in context.
Outcomes 1. Survey of Science Communicators and contributing stakeholders. - From June 2011 a questionnaire and a brief presentation to the project is sent to a large list of possible interested people and organizations. - In January 2012 begins the collection of relevant documents and information on the river and Tavira, including a list of possible stakeholders. - From 10 to 16 de February the first field work for interviews with local actors and register of images for the video to be produced. - A second field work will occur in March 2012 to complete the list of contacts and structure participations in the first seminar. - A first report with a list of stakeholders and the contribution they may bring to the Project will be produced by the end of May.
Operational actions/Land marks 2. Production of Information We will collect existing, scientific, economic and cultural knowledge, and incentive production of new one, systematizing the information in pieces of simple and accessible comprehension. Inquiry will be conducted in two directions: - Collect and organize existing documentation relative to the relation of Tavira and its river. - Field work to identify local social, environmental, cultural and economic dynamics; -Identify more accurately problems and potential protagonists aiming at the seminars to be organized. -Promote a climate of interest toward the seminars and events. -Identify the issues to be addressed in the small video to be produced.
3. Organization of Seminars/Encounters Informal platforms of debate or think tanks, will pop out specificities and opportunities, with a look at landscape, natural resources and biophysical values, but also at the social, cultural and economic framework, and will trigger a debate among distinct actors, to enhance creativity, innovation and development. Encounters and seminars will have an active role in incubation and genesis of ideas assuming a format of a laboratory of participation and knowledge. Seminars will be of open participation, confronting actors than normally dont confront: Planners debating with fishermen; Researchers debating with tourism enterprises; City counselors debating with salt producers. Promoting debate out of the normal comfort zone, we will open a gap for the genesis of ideas and synergies, as well as for unblocking impasses, many times impairing local development. Seminars have the ambition to be a source of multiple knowledge, including a public reflection on development and sustainability.

2º Seminar moment: October 2012 - Based on the results of the first seminar, this seminar will address de definition of concrete strategies for development focused on the river. a) Structure of the Encounter: - Guided field trip to selected sites of contention. - Presentation of study cases (national or international) related to the identified needs. - Application of methodologies /knowledge to specific cases in Tavira (work groups). - Presentation and discussion of group work conclusions. - Publication of conclusions on the Project site. - Launching of the ideas contest – Tavira Prize. 3º Seminar moment: May 2013 – This seminar will aim at put to public debate concrete projects arising from the second seminar with participation of political decision makers.

Operational actions/Land marks 4. Realization of Events. From acquired knowledge and issues raised from debates, concrete and actions will be organized as an interaction of specific actors. These will be organized by the project team or in a bilateral way by specific organizations involved in the global project as a result of contacts made possible through the project network of contacts. They will be announced in the site of the project as they come to occur.
