Youth gather for second annual plenary sesion

foto 2021 ple infanciaParticipants in the island’s participatory youth council logged on this morning for a full-house assembly that was chaired by Consell de Formentera premiere Alejandra Ferrer and co-chaired by Formentera Department of Youth head Vanessa Parellada. Additional attendees included pupils from schools in Sant Francesc, Sant Ferran and la Mola and Marc Ferrer high school.

As President Ferrer welcomed plenary participants she drew attention to the key part they play representing voices of island youth. “We’re taking note”, she insisted. “The skate park young islanders pressed for is about to open in Sant Francesc, as is the children’s play area in Sant Ferran.” And the island’s schoolchildren earned praise for what Ferrer described as “the tremendous sense of responsibility you’ve displayed”.

Grabbing the spotlight among the issues plenary attendees brought before cabinet members in attendance were sustainable mobility, housing, subsidies for electric vehicles, kids’ play areas and the new skate park, among others.
