David Lubans

NHMRC Senior Research Fellow DPhil, MSc, BEd (Human Movement and Health)

David Lubans

NHMRC Senior Research Fellow DPhil, MSc, BEd (Human Movement and Health)

An early career in Physical Education teaching sparked David’s commitment to his research passion - the design, evaluation and dissemination of successful school-based physical activity interventions.

His work is an antidote to the global pandemic of physical inactivity, the importance of which is reflected by his involvement in almost $30 million worth of research projects.

An NHMRC Senior Research Fellow, David has been a chief investigator on more than 40 school-based physical activity interventions that have benefited large numbers of children and adolescents in Australia and abroad.

Interventions are based on behavioural science theories and socio-ecological models to support behaviour change, and chances of success increased by close inter-sectoral partnerships with government and non-government organisations.

One of these interventions, the current iPLAY study, is being delivered in 135 primary schools in NSW. At a conservative estimate, this program will be delivered to more than 20,000 children.

“Ultimately, my high level goal is for all Australian schools to implement comprehensive school physical activity programs that provide opportunities for all children and adolescents to be physically active within and beyond the school day,” David explains.

Inês Afonso Marques

Psychologist and Psychotherapist

Inês Afonso Marques

Psychologist and Psychotherapist

I like reading and writing. I like laughing and playing. I like the simplicity and authenticity of children. I like the crossroads of adolescents. I like the fascinating  way of the themes of parenthood.

It was early that I decided that it was with children and adolescents that I wanted to grow as a professional. I believe that each child and adolescent has within you a huge potencial and I believe that I have a lot to learn with them.

All future flowers are today’s seeds.

I believe (and experience daily) that each child has within them a set of valuable seeds that watered with attention, love and affection  give the most beautiful flowers. As a psychotherapist I feel an immense satisfaction to, everytime each flower in development need help, contribute, based on strict science for their well-balanced growth.

I face each flower with their own self characteristics as a special and unique challenge in therapy. I seek to translate what so many times it hard for them to put into words. I seek that parents and children feel connected emotionally and full-filled, reducing the impact of  growth “little pains” or “pranks” that the mind and body decide to do to the little ones. One day the garden will be filled with more confident, resilient and happy flowers.

“Já me apontaram uma caçadeira, facas, já me tentaram atropelar e apedrejar, mas nunca conseguiram impedir-me de fazer o meu trabalho”

A citação parece retirada do guião de um filme de acção, mas descreve o lado menos visível do trabalho do jornalista Luís Maia. Nascido a 15 de Outubro de 1976, na Póvoa de Varzim, licenciou-se em Comunicação Social no Instituto Superior de Ciências Sociais e Políticas, a mesma faculdade, onde neste momento está a fazer um mestrado em Política Social.
Em 1999 trocou um emprego em part-time, num call center, por um estágio pago apenas com senhas de refeição, na redação da TVI. Iniciou aí uma carreira que o levou a produtoras como a Duvideo, Teresa Guilherme Produções, Comunicassom, e Fremantle, para além do jornal 24 Horas, de estações como TVI e SIC, bem como a colaborações esporádicas com imprensa estrangeira.
Entre 2008 e 2009 viveu em Angola, onde contribuiu para um momento histórico, ao coordenar os conteúdos de entretenimento do primeiro canal privado daquele país, a TV Zimbo.
Como locutor, empresta a voz a canais como História, Odisseia, Discovery e Crime & Investigation. Como autor, já assinou nove livros de não-ficção, sete deles em co-autoria com o também jornalista Hernâni Carvalho.
Actualmente trabalha para a produtora Coral Europa e faz reportagens em directo no segmento de análise criminal, do programa Casa Feliz, da SIC. 
Profissional determinado, decidiu ser tempo de partilhar com outros aquilo que aprendeu ao longo de 21 anos de carreira, através de Palestras, bem como de formações em Media Training e Public Speaking.

Master in Development Studies in Social and Educational Sciences and recognized specialist in the field of ​​social and behavioral sciences, he works mostly in socio-educational areas in thematic domains that includes fighting poverty and promoting social inclusion, with particular attention in the links between children's rights, poverty and exclusion. Over the last 20 years, in these domains, he has designed, monitored and implemented several projects based on research-action dialectics, particularly in critical urban territories in the Porto metropolitan area, seeing some of these actions recognized as examples of good practices by external entities.

He has always developed his professional career in a trans-European context. He has participated in numerous high-level meetings, including editions of the European Commission's European Forums on the Rights of the Child; The European Expert group on the transition from Institutional to Community-based Care, formally known as the Ad Hoc Expert Group on the transition from institutional care to community-based care; high-level conferences organized by presidencies of the Council of the European Union...

He makes his own Kant's assertion, which he likes to quote from memory: theory without practice is empty, practice without theory is blind.
