The Councilor for Multiple Services María Dolores Ruiz participated in a round table on municipal experiences, organized in the Day "Libera, Unidos contra la Junlezaleza", organized in Madrid by the FEMP, Ecoembes and the NGO SEOBirdlife that was held in Madrid last 23 October.
The Day, to which the City Council of San Javier was invited along with other local administrations, is part of the project of the same name "Libera, united against the trash" that aims to combat human-generated waste in nature, through the promotion of the circular economy through the recycling of containers, as well as the public's awareness of the importance of keeping natural spaces free of garbage.
María Dolores Ruiz, who participated in the round table together with other representatives of other local administrations in Spain, transferred the importance of pedagogy and awareness through workshops and campaigns.
In this sense, he related the experience of the City Council of San Javier with the implementation of continuous campaigns, both specific with schoolchildren, and other social groups, as well as general ones.
Ruiz stressed that "we are all part of the solution" a message that has been worked through talks, thematic workshops for children, storytelling, organized visits to municipal ecoparks, beach campaigns, cleaning of seabed, and always with recycling as the protagonist .
San Javier joined this project last year when schoolchildren from Nuestra Señora de Loreto School participated in a waste cleaning activity at Castillico Beach, in Santiago de la Ribera, in which they characterized and separated the different wastes found, studying the problems that could carry in the environment.
Through this activity generated by the "Libera, united against trash" project, schoolchildren became generators of a general database with which to study the causes and consequences of "trash" in our environment.
