The emerging talent and entrepreneurial initiatives of the new generations of Tenerife will be the central axis of the events of the International and European Youth Day, which will be held on August 12 in an “ambitious” conference.
From 6:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., the Tenerife Auditorium will host a complete program that “will combine discussion tables, concerts, Freestyle exhibitions with the development of the Pechakucha project that promotes the development of entrepreneurship and young talent”, as announced by the Island Councilor for Education and Youth, Concepción Rivero.
The Pechakucha will become an area to make visible the emerging talent of artists, creators, musicians, designers, technologist entrepreneurs and influencers. “All those initiatives that are growing and that are why they are linked to innovation from all points of view,” added the counselor.
Behind the work tables, music will take over from Oretnac and Edey, Endyel and Mascareño Dj set. During the day there will also be a youth information stand and a gastronomic tasting offer through foodtrucks.
“Our young people come first,” highlights the first vice president and Minister of Culture and Innovation, Enrique Arriaga, who insisted that “they are the future of our island and if they are not sufficiently trained, they will not be able to respond to all those needs that we face in the future.” Hence, the island corporation has opted to focus on promoting the training of young people.
The future objective is to “generate and attract wealth in other sectors”, as Arriaga stressed. To this end, he considers it “essential” that all the companies that want to establish themselves on the island “have the necessary talent here to carry out their work.” “For this reason, we have focused on many activities, and also in a transversal way, to ensure that our young people are as well prepared as possible, from very young to very old,” he said.
