Family-friendly presentation of Alessandra Rossin's "El bosque mágico"

The Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that at 5.00pm, Wednesday 14 December, the Marià Villangómez Library has scheduled a presentation of El bosque mágico, a book by Alessandra Rossin, at the Reading Spot (Punt de Lectura) in Sant Ferran. The presentation will be given by the author and will be combined with a workshop for families.

El bosque mágico is a project in emotional education with the aim of helping primary school children recognise emotions and understand how to express them and, above all, manage them. "Developing empathy and resolving conflicts with oneself and with others are at the heart of this work", the author explains. "The book is tailored so it can be read in different ways and fit whoever reads it", Rossin adds.

Alessandra Rossin has lived on Eivissa since 1994 and trained as a counsellor with the acclaimed Dr. Wayne Dyer and Dr. Brian Weis. She is also the author of works of poetic prose like Sentir (2017) and of self-help, like Atrévete a ser feliz (2015) and ¡Hola! Soy tu niño interior (2019). The latter was presented at the Marià Villangómez Library the year of its publication.

The presentation on Wednesday 14 December will be followed by a workshop based on the book which will offer families easy and fun tools to manage basic emotions.

Ana Juan calls for democratic coexistence to enact policies that protect rights of islanders

foto 2022xii dia constiToday Formentera hosted an official commemoration of the 44th anniversary of the Constitution in the events hall of the Consell de Formentera . In a speech, President Ana Juan pointed out that "democratic coexistence is essential if we are going to keep improving the quality of life and the rights of our residents", and pushed for "the civic conscience" that characterised the generation of politicians who drafted the Constitution. "We must remember it and push Formentera in 2022 to the fore", she said.

She stressed that "at times like these, marked by the pandemic and the energy crisis stemming from the war in Ukraine, it is essential that there is a democratic union and that governments invest in policies to protect their citizens and strengthen the social safety-net safeguarding the rights which our Constitution enshrines".

President Juan noted that regional spending in 2023 on Formentera -"expected to grow 57%", she said- and the local municipal budget "are focused on social and environmental policies, circular economy, preserving our heritage and social sustainability. This is our goal and our demand: working to improve the quality of life and the rights of our residents".

"We are managing to be heard, to make our own decisions and, as a local administration that is close to people, to act for the good and the improvement of our neighbours. As political representatives it is our obligation to make it so and if we want to leave future generations with a better and fairer Formentera we must continue working together", she said. Juan offered that "the Spanish Constitution must adapt to new realities" and that "here on Formentera we've continued to call for a senator for the island as a figure that channels the actions and decisions that affect Formentera".

The event ended with a musical performance by Xumeu Joan, teacher of the School of Music and Dance of Formentera, and student Hugo Escandell. The two played La Calera and La Llarga.
