Rincon de la Victoria marks World Environment Day.
This Saturday 5th June, the Environment Department of the Rincón de la Victoria Town Hall will host seminars and information booths as part of its Annual Environmental Education Program 2021. Children will be able to participate in plant-related workshops.
Rincón de la Victoria will celebrate World Environment Day on Saturday, 5 June, with two new activities as part of the town council’s 2021 Annual Environmental Education Program, according to Borja Ortiz, the councillor responsible for the region (PP).
There will be two activities. The first, from 12.00 to 14.00 hours at Plaza ‘Pepe El Boticario,’ will focus on the importance and value of plants, with many workshops for children on how to plant and care for a species, as well as learn about the various components of a plant and what plants require to survive. Children who bring an empty yoghurt container to this activity will get a seedling as a present.
“We will continue to conduct these activities as part of our annual program, but they are particularly significant because they coincide with World Environment Day and the critical importance of everyone being informed about alternative energy sources and the importance of environmental education,” Ortiz explained.
It is critical, according to Francisco Salado (PP), mayor of Rincón de la Victoria “to maintain this level of initiative. We are committed to environmental protection, as seen by the countless tree plantings we have undertaken throughout the municipality and the execution of our Annual Environmental Education Program. I hope that local residents will seize this chance “‘.
The second exercise will emphasise energy conservation and the advantages of a more sustainable lifestyle. It will take place in La Cala del Moral’s Plaza Gloria Fuertes, where an information booth will be set up to educate locals about the benefits of energy conservation and the usage of renewable energy sources.
Additionally, there will be information on the various financial assistance programs offered by governments to encourage the transition to a more sustainable energy source. Additionally, for those who choose, information will be supplied on how to interpret an electrical statement, assisting individuals in comprehending their household energy usage and determining the true cost of electricity at their residence, as well as the various tariffs.
This information point will be open from 18:30 to 21:00 on Saturday, 5 June. All activities are adapted to the health authority’s current safety standards.
“We invite all residents to participate in these activities to raise awareness of the importance of more responsible and sustainable energy consumption in order to reduce pollution, as well as for economic savings that directly benefit the neighborhood, as well as to teach our children the value of environmental stewardship,” the mayor said.
