This Thursday, 18 February, the first activity of the Youth/Green ImPACT project will be concluded, with another virtual session. The meeting will bring together political representatives and 13- and 14-year-olds from the Council of Adolescents and five of the city’s public schools.

The Youth/Green ImPACT project is an initiative by the City Council, framed within the European Commission’s Erasmus + programme and developed with support from the National Youth Institute (INJUVE), which has organised a structured dialogue between young people and the administration to apply the European Green Deal locally. Its purpose is to improve the knowledge that youth have of the Green Deal, creating spaces for debate with their political representatives on the actions and measures that can be adopted, and strengthening their local and European civil participation capabilities. To achieve these objectives, Rubí will organise up to five activities during 2021, which will see the involvement of some 700 young people from 13 to 30 years old, along with representatives from the local administration and European politicians and experts.

This Thursday’s session will continue the debate started on 21 January in greater depth surrounding the ecological transition and the measures that must be adopted to have more sustainable cities. The meeting will have a special appearance by Javier López Fernández, member of the European Parliament since 2014 and a member of the Committee of the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety. The politician will take part in a round table with some 50 young people. Further attendees include Mayor Ana María Martínez Martínez; the city councilman for the Environment, Ecological Transition and Animal Welfare, Andrés Medrano Muñoz; the councilman for City Promotion; Moisés Rodríguez Cantón; the councilman for Education, Víctor García Correas; and the councilwoman for Youth, Annabel Cuesta Fabre.

The virtual meeting will be held this Thursday starting at 6.15pm and, like the previous session, everybody who is interested can follow it online with no need to register in advance.
