Amigos d'Avenida

Amigos d’Avenida are a civic movement from Aveiro which has been meeting informally since November 2008 to discuss the future of the city, following a public discussion launched by the city council on the future of the city’s main artery.

Initially, the group revolved around its most visible face, the blog (, and a mailing list. Both have become forums where people meet and discuss different and often divergent ideas and where knowledge and best practices in local public policy are presented.
