ASSIST addressed an important facet of the contribution of IST to sustainability, that of the potential for the substitution of IST analogs for material consumption (virtualisation or immaterialisation). Most consumption is unrelated to basic needs but is to satisfy non-material needs. Consumption substitution by IST thus offers a powerful route to sustainability. However, design of substitution techniques necessitates both a good knowledge of the reasons for consumption and -inter alia- of the sensory and ontological aspects of IST. ASSIST surveyed existing multi-and cross-disciplinary work in the area, making recommendations for future work and proposing new parameters for product and service design.

SchoolSenses@Internet children as multisensory geographic information creators through the use of information and communication technologies
Accordingly to primary education pedagogical principles learning experiences should be active, meaningful, integrated and should promote (...)
Accordingly to primary education pedagogical principles learning experiences should be active, meaningful, integrated and should promote socialization (Ministério da Educação, 2004). In Portugal, that is not the case for a considerable number of children, as it is recognized by the Government. The potentialities of information and communication technologies (ICT) in education, in what concerns the access, sharing and construction of knowledge and the promotion of learning with the mentioned characteristics, have long been recognized. Several efforts have been developed: project Enlaces (Chile), project Minerva, program Nónio século XXI, Internet@eb1, European Schoolnet, Netd@ys, eSchola. The evaluation report of the Internet@eb1 program realizes the need to create motivation identitary factors for teachers and students, as well as contexts that ease the harmonious integration of technology in the pedagogical practice (Figueiredo, Afonso e Ferreira, 2004). The main objective of this project is to improve the quality of primary education learning, making meaningful the needed complexity approaches. ICT will be explored to develop inclusion and to (re)discover curricular themes, in real contexts. It will be used transversal and interdisciplinary approaches, searching for an effective ICT curricular integration, that will explore multi-sensory communication to promote educational success (a bridge to concrete experiences, to different learning and expression styles, to complexity and real learning). It will be pursuit in this way the development of fundamental competences to the knowledge society, like cooperation and collaboration. For that purpose, challenges will be launched periodically that should lead to collaboration and collective creation of
identitary contents. A collaborative system will support the production of geo-referenced multi-sensory web contents by primary school children. In the contexts created by the challenges, the primary education community will disseminate and share knowledge, experiences and projects, establishing relations and meetings. Diverse actors will be mobilized to build an identity space of
primary education in Internet. As examples of challenges, it could be mentioned the creation of patrimony itineraries of a region, or the decision-making process relating to environmental risk management. <br>New interfaces, models and tools will be created and used: multi-sensory communication interfaces, as well as modelling and simulation tools, will allow children to explore and create geo-referenced multi-sensory concepts and contexts; inclusive and iterative evaluation methodologies will consider the subjacent complexity of these collaborative learning processes. Evaluation and interfaces guidelines will be produced to contribute to the concrete and abstract learning developed in the creation of geo-referenced multi-sensory web contents by primary school children.

This action plan, addressing the environmental risk factors that most affect the health of European children, was adopted by European Ministers in 2004 at the Fourth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health.

The CEHAPE highlights the main commitments on children's health and environment focusing on four regional priority goals (RPGs) for Europe:

  • RPG I: ensure safe water and adequate sanitation
  • RPG II: ensure protection from injuries and adequate physical activity
  • RPG III: ensure clean outdoor and indoor air
  • RPG IV: aim at chemical-free environments

By addressing environmental risk factors, the CEHAPE covers two of the seven priorities within the comprehensive WHO European strategy on child and adolescent health and development.

The Isare project was carried out on the initiative of the Fédération Nationale des Observatoires Régionaux de Santé (FNORS) within the framework of the Health Monitoring Programme from European Commission.

The first phase, Isare I (1999-2001), made it possible to identify for each country, the most appropriate sub-national level ("health region") for the exchange of health indicators within the European Union and to assess the extent of data availability at those levels.

The second phase, Isare II (2002-2004), made it possible to test the feasibility of collecting regional data in each European country. A database demonstrator, built to illustrate the interest of this work is presented on this website.

The third phase, Isare III (2005-2007), made it possible to extend the Isare I and II project to the new countries of the European Union and to develop the data base.
