Nit Jove to fill Sant Jaume celebrations with music crafted by Formentera youth

The Formentera Office of Youth is pleased to report that as part of celebrations for the feast day of Sant Jaume, the 2022 Young Night (Nit Jove) will take place Friday 22 July. "This gathering of Formentera bands and musicians is specially designed for the young people of the island", said Vanessa Parellada, councillor of youth, who after two years of proliferating restrictions on such celebrations hopes that "everyone can enjoy these concerts". The show starts at 9.30pm in Plaça de la Constitució, in Sant Francesc.

The first to take the stage will be Camilo Puerta, A.K.A. Babymilo, a young man known for rhythm, rhyming and talent in improvisations on the microphone. Next, Tur, Lu, Flaco Fer and DJ Day-N will present their own collection of songs written, produced and recorded on Formentera. Regulars at the Casal de Joves rehearsal room and open mics, the four are united by friendship and music in an urban music project that promises to ignite Nit Jove.

Casal de Joves unveils July activities calendar specially tuned to stay cool

The Formentera Office of Youth Services has presented the Casal de Joves' July programme. Vanessa Parellada, councillor of youth services, described the activities proposed at the youth drop-in centre as "100% summer-friendly" and encouraged local youngsters to "enjoy the programme and enjoy summer".

Activities kick off Saturday 2 July with a karaoke contest. On two Wednesdays, 7 and 27 July, films will be shown on topics of interest to youth at the Casal. Friday 8 July, a table football tournament will be held with prizes for the winners.

The hot-weather activities start Saturday 9 July with an afternoon of water games; on Wednesday 13 July there will be a soap bubble activity; Saturday 16 July, there will be a bike ride and picnic on the beach, and Wednesday 20 July, a cooking workshop in which participants will craft refreshing ice cream treats.

One of the most eye-catching proposals on the July calendar is also part of Sant Jaume celebrations: Young Night (Nit Jove) will take place on Friday 22 July at 9.30pm in Sant Francesc's Plaça de la Constitució. The concerts will feature young artists from the island. To close out the month, on Saturday 30 July there will be a creative nail workshop.

The course on Japanese comic illustrations enters its fourth month in July, taking place every Thursday and continuing through August. The Casal de Joves is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 4.00pm to 10.00pm.

Formentera convenes children's and youth council for second session this year

foto 2022vi consell joventutThis morning, members of the Children's and Youth Participatory Council (Consell de Participació de la Infància i la Joventut, CPIJ) gathered for the second plenary session so far this school year and the first face-to-face plenary since the start of the pandemic. The meeting was chaired by Ana Juan, president of the Consell de Formentera, and co-chaired by Vanessa Parellada, councillor of youth. With representatives of the island's primary schools unable to attend due to scheduling conflicts, pupils at Marc Ferrer Secondary School (IES Marc Ferrer) were the only other attendees.

The president welcomed plenary councillors and praised their good behaviour during pandemic. For her part, Councillor Parellada drew attention to the fact that the CPIJ plenary assembly had been at the origin of proposals such as the skate park.

The youth councillors proposed changes to improve the skate park's functionality, highlighted potential upgrades at the high school, and asked about formentera.eco security cameras. They also asked about outdoor facilities for archery training, a project on which the Consell de Formentera is already working.

Plenary attendees were also reminded that people under 18 can ride the bus for free and that they will soon be able to practise calisthenics at a dedicated space at the new Espai Cultural de Sant Ferran.
