THE CHILDREN and adolescent council of Teulada-Moraira met with the councillors of Teulada-Moraira last week as the municipality strives to be awarded Ciudad Amiga (Child Friendly City) status by UNICEF.
Mayor Carlos Linares and Councillor Daniel Ibanco – amongst several other councillors – listened attentively to the council’s suggestions as it presented ideas and results from workshops held since its inauguration.
Suggestions were made in regard to public spaces, how to improve the environment, culture and leisure activities, education and sports and members of the council even suggested improvements in their own schools.
The elder councillors assured the council they would follow up and assign suggestions which cannot be solved by them to the entities in charge.
In an excerpt from their website, UNICEF describe: ‘with the Child Friendly Cities Programme, we want to contribute to improving the living conditions of children and adolescents through the promotion and implementation of effective municipal policies that guarantee their integral development with a rights approach.’
