Fátima Matos Almeida
We regret to inform you that last night a great Caretaker, Vice-President of CEI, Fátima Matos Almeida, passed away. This message plunged us all into deep sadness. We share the pain after Fátima passed away with Her family. Fátima will remain in our memory, as a radiating memoir.
Fátima was the spirit of Caretakers. Her intelligence, friendliness and beauty affected all of us deeply for so many years. Her commitment to youth and the environment was unmatched and inspiring; thousands of young people from all over the world were touched by her presence. As a co-founder of ASPEA, the Portuguese Environmental Education NGO, she became a key figure in the Portuguese EE movement.
