On May 29, 2019, a heartfelt homage was paid to Prof. Catarina Ramos, who died on April 25, 2018.
The tribute session, held at the Auditorium Orlando Ribeiro at IGOT, had testimonies about Prof. Catarina Ramos’ great generosity, uprightness and mission spirit. One of IGOT’s workers, in integrating the Installation Commission and the 1st Director of the Institute, Prof. Catarina Ramos marked several generations of geographers, not only for her scientific work, but also for her enormous taste and commitment to teaching.
The homage counted on the launch and presentation of the book “Water and Territory. A Tribute to Catarina Ramos “, and, of course, with a student tribute, Carlos Esperança, who, in his first solo album -” The Sky Is Blues “- dedicates a song to Prof. Catarina Ramos , which he performed live at the ceremony. At the end of the session was presented a small exhibition that will be visible in the lobby of the IGOT building during the month of June 2019.
The longing for Prof. Catarina Ramos, of her good sense and her smile that guided this tribute also remind us that, as Prof. José Manuel Simões and Prof. Maria José Roxo, despite his departure, Prof. Catarina remains alive in our hearts and in his work.
