Searching for Protagonist in Portugal

Hey Everyone :)
We are a group of Filmmakers from germany and also members of an eurpean project called "Young Faces of Europe".
The focus of the project are the little storries of different young Europeans who spoke up for a better society. We are searching for persons in PORTUGAL who do little projects to set a sign and make the world a bit better. I think everything is possible, for example in slovenia we are in contact with a young man who reactivate an old hiking trail across the border between Italy and Slovenia.
The Persons we are searching about can do their projects on their own or in a small groups or organisations and it can be something positive but also negativ. Each film stands for a European face. The topics could be politics, environment protection, religion or any other important subject what are responsible for our society.
For Example: This Spring we visited Lenny in Italy, he showed us how he draw comics and talked about his engegement in publishing a sociocritical magazine together with friends....and we went around with him and he told us his thoughts about socitety, europe and so on .
So in the end we want to edit a film like a Mosaic wich shows a lot of facets of our young european generation.
Maybe you already know someone who maybe could become a "face of europe" in our project or you know other people who can help us to find some Protagonist.
 
I really look forward to hear from you!
 
Thanks and best regards,
 
Julia
