THE City Council of Vélez-Málaga have made a firm commitment to a range of cultural and social issues in the community.

At a plenary session held last week, the council approved several motions related to gender-based violence, children’s rights and the municipality’s festive traditions. 

The meeting began with a recital of an institutional manifesto to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, where initiatives will be introduced in Vélez-Málaga to fight against gender violence and enhance the network of support to women affected by the crime.

Three proposals were also approved to support the ‘International Children’s Day’ and the 30th anniversary of the ‘Children Rights Convention’. As Vélez-Málaga has been recognised as a ‘Child Friendly City’ by UNICEF, the council have promised to renew their commitment through a framework that will continue to protect children.

Finally, the council declared Vélez-Málaga’s nativity scene as an ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.’ This was at the request of the Association of Belenistas, who asked for a commitment to preserve one of the most important traditions in society.
