The “Learning Madeira” project

The “Learning Madeira” project – Encyclopedic Dictionary of Madeira will gather all existing information on the archipelago, the Madeirans and their diaspora, focusing on various fields of knowledge (from Geology to Biology, including History, Environment and Emigration, etc.), since the Island of Madeira emerged from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean until the present day.

This project is bridging the gap that exists since the publication of Elucidário Madeirense (Father Fernando Augusto da Silva and Doctor Carlos de Azevedo Menezes, 1921), which is not updated since the 1940s, and it is part of the celebrations of the 500 years of the discovery of Madeira by João Gonçalves Zarco.

This project will present the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Madeira by publishing its 10 volumes with 700 pages each, also with the objective of creating this online platform with multimedia contents, which will include an e-learning component and will make all the knowledge about Madeira on all its fields of study available worldwide.
