Luis Plácido dos Santos


Luis Santos (Portugal)

I have a background in management, having attained both a BA and MSc in this field, and a postgraduate degree in Grant making, Philanthropy and Social Investment. I am based in Lisbon and have studied and worked in the UK. My main interests are philanthropy, the science of happiness and politics.

Why I joined FutureLab Europe? Thanks to FutureLab Europe I started to believe again in the possibility that honest and compassionate politics can lead citizens towards a meaningful and fulfilling life.

Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? I believe Europe needs active citizens because without it, failed states and a failed Union is just a few decades away.
