On Saturday, February 17, the Faculty of Human Sciences will be holding its first Alumni Day at 10 a.m. in Auditorium 1 on the campus of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa. On this day, we want to celebrate the achievements of our former students and create an opportunity for them to make new connections and see old friends and colleagues.

During the event, there will be a panel with five former students, each of whom will share their journey after graduating from FCH. This will be followed by the talk "Will it be as bad as it looks?" by David Dinis on some of the main challenges and threats to our society and way of life, focusing on what the next few years hold for Portugal (and the world), given the political crisis we are going through. To round off the morning, there will also be a networking lunch.
