Javea City Council has begun the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Spanish Urban Agenda, to be followed within the next few years. 

Following these policies, Denia´s UNED (Universidad Nacional de Educacion a Distancia) were hosted in Javea´s Town Hall on May 15, with the project, “Her voice, her power, our future! Women leading the way to sustainability” in collaboration with 8 other cities in Poland, Romania, Latvia, Italy, Slovenia, Ukraine and France.

The project emphasised the need to increase women´s participation in civic life and the development of sustainable agendas, focusing on the UN´s Sustainable Development Goals in the Cities Network.

The deputy mayor of the local UNED, Mavi Perez, highlighted that this plan “becomes the guide that the local government will have for the coming years,” and will be followed to improve the “quality of life of the residents, as well as the care of our environment,” placing the Marina Alta region higher on the global list of sustainable and equal societies.
