TORREVIEJA Town Hall is set to sign an agreement with the University Miguel Hernandez (UMH) to promote the activities the two have been developing for years.
Torrevieja’s mayor was joined by councillor for Culture, Alejandro Blanco, as he explained the agreement “aims to give a definitive boost to the relationship of the council with the UMH, solving once and for all the organisational chaos we have seen from several years ago.”
Councillor for Education, Jose Hurtado, said that the ‘classrooms of experience’ scheme and summer courses had not been full and that by signing a formal agreement “it guarantees the effectiveness of these activities as well as the responsibility and obligations of both Torrevieja and the university.
The Town Hall said this would also allow citizens to benefit from the information and knowledge with interesting activities lined up for the general public who, because of age, had generally been excluded from training programmes and workshops.
The councillors added they intend to give more importance, if possible, to this relationship and expand and diversify the presence of the UMH in Torrevieja “signing soon the necessary agreements and the precise terms that are suitable for the formation of our citizens and opportunities for access to knowledge.”
The University also plans to help provide new equipment at the headquarters of the Virgen del Carmen Cultural Centre.
