Formentera joins Nena i Esport platform to promote gender equality

The Office of Sport of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce that it has begun preparing the Values Plan for the 2023-2024 academic year, including the launch of Nena i Esport, an online platform that architects of the project hope will work in tandem with local schools. Paula Ferrer, sports councillor, explained that the goal is "to use sport and [the] platform as tools to promote gender equality".

The platform will be used to propose activities encouraging girls, boys and actors around them to debate, investigate and reflect on gender equality in sport. The proposal supports teachers by offering practical and interactive activities designed for years five and six of primary school and years one through five of secondary school.

To encourage teachers of PE and other subjects, homeroom teachers and school administrations to participate, the Office of Sport has sent a letter with all the information and a form to schools.

Escandell gave an overview of the four axes of funding to modernise and improve tourist destinations:

- One: green and ecological transition, €600,000. Create a rural interpretive centre and self-sustainable farm on Casa Ferreres estate in La Mola and rehabilitate the Casa Ferreres home. Es Garroveret defence tower will also be rehabilitated and its hiking trails improved.

- Two: energy efficiency, €1,000,000. Install photovoltaic panels and recharging points in public car parks.

- Three: digital transition, €200,000. Invest in digital transition; through the Data Observatory, collect information for tourism big data to enhance the destination and digital marketing.

- Four: competitiveness, €200,000. Promote local agri-food products. In this way, the primary sector, which generates a circular economy, will continue to be supported and promoted.

These plans are part of the state programme to modernise and improve tourist destinations. The programme has been prepared by the Secretary of State for Tourism with the participation of the autonomous communities and island and town councils. To that end, at the proposal of the Department of Economic Model, Tourism and Labour, the Governing Council has approved €36.3 million in direct subsidies for the island councils of Menorca, Formentera and Mallorca and various Balearic town councils. Formentera will receive €2,000,000.

Representatives had first reviewed a related report prepared by the Studies and Planning Service of the Directorate General of Water Resources of the Balearic Government.
