Yesterday, Tuesday, the final session of the Children's Council for the 2020/2021 academic year was held in the Library of Dénia; a meeting in which the councilors and counselors, representatives of the 5th and 6th grade primary school students from the city's educational centers, informed the members of the Municipal Corporation of the list of requests drawn up by the boys and girls .
Among the main demands, those related to the demand for leisure activities for their age group, such as, for example, a varied program that includes 'scape room'; an alternative to Dissabtes Joves for a smaller audience, from 11 to 14 years old; cineforum in summer for children; more excursions through natural landscapes; and they asked about the execution deadlines for the 'pumptrack' approved in the Participatory Budgets.
The concern for the environment of the youngest is also evident in the list of proposals: they were interested in whether the city council foresees any measure to clean Dénia and the beaches of cigarette butts and bet on the promotion of volunteering for beach cleaning.
In the area of accessibility, they called for the expansion of the bike lanes "so that they reach somewhere and not cut off"; more off-center car parks in good condition; and traffic lights for the blind.
Mayor, Vicent Grimalt, thanked the little ones for their contributions and invited them to a next meeting, in a period of approximately one month, to offer them concrete answers about the viability of each demand.
Analysis of the parks of Dénia from a children's perspective
On the other hand, the Children's Council presented the survey that the councilors and counselors have prepared to assess the state of the parks and, based on the opinions of the children of Dénia, present proposals for improvement.
Among the questions: if the way to get there is safe, if the installed appliances are in good condition, what novelties would you incorporate, if it is adapted for people with functional diversity or if there is a sink and a drinking water source, among other issues.
