Castalla presents the first Childhood and Adolescence Plan in the history of the municipality

  • The presentation of this initiative will be made telematically and will be broadcast on Friday 2nd October on the Council’s Facebook profile

Castalla Town Council has presented the first Childhood and Adolescence Plan in the history of the municipality. The Council continues to make progress in the implementation of projects that promote citizen participation with the design of this programme, as it did with the drafting of the Equality Plan. The project has the collaboration of the Department of Participation, Transparency, Cooperation and Democratic Quality and the consultancy firm EQUÀLITAT, participation and equality, together with the staff of the council.

Due to the context in which we find ourselves because of the COVID-19 and the health crisis, the presentation will be made telematically. Therefore, the corporation is calling on all residents of the municipality to the presentation of the initiative, which will be broadcast on Friday 2 October through the Castalla Town Council’s institutional Facebook profile. As the Department of Social Welfare and the Department of Youth have pointed out, it is important that citizens attend this event virtually in order to achieve the greatest number of agents participating in the design of the Plan.

The Councillor for Social Services, Maite Gimeno, has insisted on “the importance of creating regulations that respect the intergenerational principle of our youth. We want to implement sustainable and efficient development policies that do not harm today’s young society in the future”. Currently, the city of Castalla has a population of 1,530 people between the ages of 0 and 16, which represents around 15% of the residents of the capital of La Foia. With the Children’s Plan, the head of Social Services said, “we will be able to tackle the different problems that affect young people and their environment, know what affects them and diagnose a possible solution”.

For his part, the Councillor for Youth, Román Sáez, has focused on the responsibility that the current generations have with those who are to come: “the intergenerational principle, sustainable development and solidarity must guide the public policies that we carry out”. In this sense, the head of the area pointed out that “our ultimate objective is that future generations can live in optimum conditions”.

The session will be moderated by the coordinator of the Social Services Area, Mónica Martínez, and will be given by the EQUÀLITAT project coordinator, participation and equality, Lorena García. It will also be attended by the Councillor for Social Services, Maite Gimeno, and the Councillor for Youth, Román Sáez.

The Children’s Plan is partially funded by the Regional Ministry of Participation, Transparency, Cooperation and Democratic Quality, which recently awarded a grant of 5,000 euros to finance the project.
