Velez-Malaga marks Universal Children’s Day (November 20) by awarding schools and educational centres that took part in a Unicef initiative “Greetings Without Contact’.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the traditional Local Children’s Plenary has not been held and instead the contactless greetings activity was carried out.
Students were asked to explore different alternatives of greeting friends and family in times of a health crisis, “with the aim of maintaining and strengthening social relations at school while respecting the necessary prevention rules”.
Councillor for Social Rights and Equality, Víctor González, gave each participating educational centre €100 to be used for educational or school material.
He said: “The initiative highlights the relevance of being aware of the need and importance of recognising the voices, ideas and opinions of our children, of considering and making their contributions visible, of providing free-contamination meeting spaces and games and of making them see their high capacity to participate in social and cultural events”.
