The "IX Sustainable Development Awards" of the regional government distinguish Torreño City Council (09/04/2018)

The mayor of Las Torres de Cotillas Isabel María Zapata picked up Monday, April 9 the award that the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment has awarded to its City Council in the framework of the 'Sustainable Development Awards'.

The consistory Torreño has been awarded in the category of environmental education initiatives at the municipal level for its project 'Good urban environmental practices'.

The event took place in the Archaeological Museum of Murcia and was chaired by the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment Javier Celdrán.

"We are very grateful for the recognition of this work that we have been doing among our youth," says Zapata, who highlights the importance of raising awareness among young people about aspects such as this.

Various stages

"This initiative has completed its fifth edition, is aimed at 5th grade schoolchildren and about 250 students participate each year," explains the councilor for Environment, Inmaculada Fernández, who points out that these are educational actions to promote among the school population the acquisition of values, knowledge and practices that enable them to act and make decisions before future problems of urban behavior. The project 'Good urban environmental practices' consists of three stages.

The first is a test of environmental sustainability, where students analyze their respect and care for the environment and then evaluate the results.

Then, the children are asked to make an analysis of the noise they suffer in their life, in order to make them aware of the levels of hearing impacts that can affect their health.

Finally, a visit is made to the Wastewater Treatment Plant (EDAR) of the municipality to see how it works.
