SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, June 11. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The CC-PNC group of the Cabildo de Tenerife held a sectoral meeting today, Saturday, in which some 150 professionals and experts participated to analyze the state of the island of Tenerife and collect their contributions. The event is part of the policy of dialogue and consensus established by the formation with the aim of learning in depth the problems of each sector of Tenerife society.
The CC-PNC spokesman, Carlos Alonso, explained that the work dynamic was articulated through a dozen tables in which different topics were addressed such as the fight against poverty, active aging, mental health, housing, sustainability, mobility , primary sector and water, economic development, education and culture, sports promotion and tourism.
Each director made a preliminary analysis of the current situation and from there a debate was generated with specific questions for the professionals, technicians and experts of each of the tables to intervene.
For his part, the insular general secretary of CC de Tenerife, Francisco Linares, thanked “the participation of independent people who want to altruistically contribute their grain of sand to have a better society”.
“We are talking about the Island that we want for the next 10 or 15 years and it is necessary to listen to all sectors to find possible solutions to the problems. Obviously, the COVID-19 pandemic has marked a before and after and it is precisely It is necessary to be next to the people who work every day in each of the sectors that we have addressed because they can contribute their experience and knowledge to us”, he added.
Also present at the event were Fernando Clavijo, José Manuel Bermúdez, Rosa Dávila, Cristina Valido and Socorro Beato, among other authorities, who also participated in the tables to learn about the specific problems of each sector.
In this sense, Carlos Alonso pointed out that they are reflections and proposals on the future of Tenerife that are made with the society of the Island. “We have always been attached to the territory and we defend Tenerife and we want that defense to come from the people here , what he thinks and what he thinks and wants for his Island,” he added.
“We are concerned about the problems that have to do with social exclusion. Poverty rates have skyrocketed after the pandemic, to which must be added the effects that inflation and the war in Ukraine are generating. We want to make a comprehensive proposal , that attacks the problem from all fronts, from housing, gender violence, issues that have to do with social assistance, employment and education,” Alonso said.
For the nationalist spokesman, “the role of education and training for the development of society is important. It is something to which we gave great importance in the previous mandate through the Tenerife 2030 strategy, something that has been abandoned by the current government group. We want a more capable island to have a better future”.
In the same way, Carlos Alonso influenced another basic axis such as that of the elderly, “who have been abandoned in the last two years.” “They have been the most fragile in this pandemic and we want to resume the effort we made at the time through the active aging programs through Ansina to give an adequate response to the elderly and to integrate them into society. They are people who They have a lot to contribute and what needs to be done is to put resources so that they have a good quality of life because they have earned it by hand,” he said.
The nationalist politician explained that they also want an island that is committed to values, entrepreneurship, innovation and that would also do so on creativity. “That was Tenerife 2030 and we want to take it back. 2030 people are creative, innovative, entrepreneurial and have a point of difference to be more capable in a globalized world.”
“The world is more open than ever and that is why we launched the linguistic immersion scholarships that allow more than a thousand young people to study abroad each year. We also bet on a training that we call the ‘last mile’ that It allows people to improve their ability to enter the labor market, that is, that this training is a training one, in the company, that it is dual, which facilitates labor insertion,” said Carlos Alonso.
