The theme of this year’s event will be “À Flor da Pele” and roughly means “Nerves on edge”. It is an idiomatic expression that are impossible to translate from Portuguese into English.
It doesn’t mean “skin deep”, quite the opposite. It has to do with strong emotions and visceral feelings. Anything that makes one feel on the edge will most likely be very deep rather than skin deep. We are looking for themes such as economics, (in the sense that countries like Portugal, Spain, Iceland and Egypt are/have been on the brink of collapse); social entrepreneurship; the individual (love, fear, strong emotions, anything that distinguishes us or brings us closer), technology, environment, sustainability, sports, among others.
