From Fons Pitiús de Cooperació, Formentera welcomes Giramón

Next Monday, 17 January at 6.00pm, the "Ajuntament Vell" exhibition space will open its doors to Giramón, an exhibition which will remain on view until Thursday 27 January.

This exhibition is designed to teach children in early-childhood education about other places around the world. Torta, a travelling lizard, brings together five children from various countries and continents and leads on an active discovery of each other's daily activities.

During one-hour guided tours, groups of four and five year olds from Formentera schools take it in turns visiting the exhibition. Pupils from Mestre Lluís Andreu, Verge Miraculosa, La Mola and Sant Ferran will discover a more positive image of other countries and ways of life. According to the Fons Pitiús de Cooperació, "The exhibition teaches children about all they have in common with people in other parts of the world, as well as the essential roles that women often play and the importance of community in the lives of featured individuals: whether in decision making, conflict resolution, project development or elsewhere; children will also grasp the importance of nature and continuous contact with it, and the ability to live with few material things".

The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday from 11.00am to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm. The Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" is closed on Sundays, Monday mornings and bank holidays.

foto 2021xi ple infanciaAvui al matí s'ha celebrat el Ple del Consell de Participació de la Infància i la Joventut de manera telemàtica.

La presidenta ha agraït a tots els alumnes el gran esforç que han fet des que va començar la pandèmia, i ha recordat que amb el confinament es varen suspendre les classes i quan es varen reobrir les escoles varen haver d'anar amb moltes restriccions i amb l'ús obligatòria de mascareta que encara segueix vigent. "Us volia agrair el vostre comportament exemplar, gràcies per ajudar-nos a tots a complir amb les mesures covid, ja que gràcies al bon comportament de tots, avui estam en una situació més o menys bona i esperam que puguem celebrar les festes de Nadal amb la família i amics i poder avançar per tenir una normalitat quasi com la d'abans", segons ha explicat Ana Juan.

D'altra banda, la consellera de Joventut, Vanessa Parellada, ha mostrat la seva satisfacció per celebrar el primer Ple de la Infància i Joventut amb el Parc de Patinatge en marxa, ja que era una demanda que va néixer en aquest ple. En aquest sentit, Parellada ha destacat que "des del Consell es treballa per crear nous espais i equipaments perquè els puguin fer servir els infants i joves de l'illa, com la nova escola i escoleta de Sant Ferran, o l'antiga escola, on ara s'està creant un nou Espai Cultural que també podran fer servir els joves i nens i nenes de l'illa".

A la sessió s'ha visualitzat el vídeo sobre la intervenció dels i de les representants del Consell de Participació de la Infància i la Joventut de Formentera al X Parlament Infantil celebrat el dia 19/11/2021.

Formentera hosts second "Vívete: Lives inspiring lives" for island youth

foto 2021 vivete AThe Formentera Office of Youth is pleased to report that today Friday 19 November, pupils at Marc Ferrer secondary school sat for "Vivete: Lives Inspiring Lives", a conference featuring Paralympic athletes Enhamed Enhamed, Diego Ballesteros and hometown windsurfer Sergi Escandell.

Councillor of Youth Vanessa Parellada said the Consell de Formentera-backed event was about "giving young islanders models of perseverance that inspire and transform us". While the event was previously staged as a joint function between Eivissa and Formentera, this is the second Vivite to be held exclusively on Formentera and the first time local organisers opt for an in-person format.

Speakers

The crowd at this year's Vívete heard from the winner of the Royal Gold Medal for Sporting Merit, Enhamed Enhamed, together with Diego Ballesteros, who wrote "12.822 km de Zaragoza a Pekin en bicicleta", an account of his experience in perseverance cycling from Spain to China in 2008. A new challenge presented itself in the form of a car accident that left Ballesteros in a wheelchair, but the athlete continued to tackle an array of sporting challenges in his quest become a Paralympian. Mateo Sanz could not attend, but the audience heard from Sanz' colleague and Spanish Windsurfing Champ Sergi Escandell.

In addition to hearing their inspiring tales of perseverance and self-improvement, attendees had the chance to converse with speakers as well. Journalist, presenter and conference M.C. Maria Roig took pains to ensure that the showcase of life stories was permeated by a dynamic of active participation between audience and speakers.

Vivete is sponsored by the Consell de Formentera with additional support from the Balearic government, Apartamentos El Puerto and Baleària.

Vívete

Vívete started in 2017 as a way to leverage pre-eminent figures in the field to promote human values, empowerment and tools to help young people toward conscientious personal development.
