The Termas do Centro network ensures the extension of its activity until June, so that the activities made impossible by the pandemic in the last two years can be carried out, the coordinator of the Termas Centro network, Adriano Barreto Ramos, announced this Wednesday. This extension allows the implementation of initiatives that could not be carried out in 2020 and 2021, with the closure of spas due to the pandemic situation.
“This has made it impossible to carry out actions already programmed and contracted, but which will now be implemented, namely those referring to the cycle of animation events of the Viva Termas Centro network, the Innovation Project and the communication itself,” he adds.
Adriano Barreto Ramos explains that in the field of innovation they intend to complete and test a tool called PRO – patient reported outcomewhich is being developed with the Escola Superior de Saúde do Instituto Politécnico de Viseu, and which will achieve results Thermal cures from the point of view of the spa.
“In the anchoring project of Aldeias do Conhecimento there is also an ongoing project collection of souvenirs from our spas, which are displayed on our website. We already have a lot of them available, which have been collected from the population who live near the spas,” he explains.
In the animation project, “some actions will be concluded”, namely the “art for children”, “jazz in spas” and “poetry with melody” initiatives, which aimed to “call people to spas”.
“We also have three other big actions to do, one of which we called ‘sacred bath’, for the official day of the spa. Our idea is to make the hot springs open, so that people have very favorable conditions to experience it, because we know there are many hot spring people who have never entered the spa,” he reveals.
Another novelty, “perhaps the greatest action of all”, is the regional roadmap for healthy food in Termas Centro. “Let’s invite a chief and endogenous products from spas will be used. The idea is to take traditional recipes and make upgrades“, to be continued. Also in the activities of the animation plan that remained to be carried out, “As Termas Centro on two wheels” stands out, in collaboration with the Medical Club of Mototourism, in which “doctors will visit the spas on two wheels “.
The Termas Centro network coordinator also mentioned that they intend to energize the network “geocaching», carry out a live painting activity and narration and even workshops dance, with galas in the baths.
