The City Council of Redován wanted this year’s celebration of World Environment Day to focus on the work carried out in this area by the Colegio Sagrados Corazones, and, therefore, this day was celebrated with the students and teachers from college. The school center has been developing the project ‘RedovánpolisGo! The sustainable people’ that has just received the first prize at the national level in the category of health, well-being and food in the XII School Contest ‘Let’s take care of the Environment’. The Councilor for the Environment, Ramón López, has assured that “it was worth delaying the celebration of this day that took place yesterday, Sunday, to be able to share it with such an important asset in caring for the environment in Redován, such as the school ”.
The mayor, who has been accompanied by the Councilor for Education, Rebeca Martínez, and the mayor, Nely Ruiz, as well as management personnel from the school and those responsible for Redovánpolis, added that these workshops and activities “we want them to serve as a token of appreciation from all the people of Redován to the work that is carried out in the school, since it is very important that we contribute to improving the environment from childhood and in our homes, through recycling, the reuse of objects and with this, we reduce the waste that we generate. In this sense, he has recalled that on many occasions it is the boys and girls who take home everything they have learned and encourage their parents to recycle.
During the morning, different activities were held, among which the presentation of the ecological municipal school garden stood out, “which comes to enrich that environmental and sustainable project of the school and for whose implementation the City Council has also collaborated”, he said the concilor.
For its realization they have had the collaboration of the Vega Baja Sustainable Consortium, which has developed the recycling workshops and the boys and girls have had the opportunity to see closely the truck that is in charge of the equipment collection service, as well as the sweeper of the latest generation that is used in cleaning the streets of Redován “which we have labeled with the logo of the school project, so that it can be made known throughout our town”, indicated the mayor.
