The city of Évora (Portugal), which belongs to the territory certified as Touristic Destination Dark Sky Alqueva, hosts the 15 and 16 September 2020, the “I Meeting of Starlight Guides and Monitors and III Starlight Astrotourism Meeting”.
It is the first time that the official meeting takes place with all the people trained by the Starlight Foundation, which entails an excellent opportunity to share experiences and life lessons and to establish guidelines regarding the future.
This meeting, which will take place in the Lecture Hall of the School Espírito Santo of the University of Évora, will happen at the same time as the third edition of the Astrotourism Meeting, in which the intention is to continue progressing in the search of a response to the several challenges which arise in the field of the astrotourism, as well as to continue establishing guidelines for the defense of the night sky and the disclosure of the astronomic knowledge.
The session of the day 15 September will include little presentations of 5 minutes maximum length, where the Starlight Monitors and Guides will be able to display their main works and lines of action.
