La campanya “Vidre per Posidònia” es tanca a Formentera amb una entrega de premis

foto 2020 vidre per posidonia 1El conseller de Medi Ambient del Consell de Formentera, Antonio J Sanz, ha assistit avui a l’acte de tancament de campanya “Vidre per Posidònia” d’Ecovidrio, que ha tengut lloc avui en el camí de sa Guia de Formentera. A l’acte també ha assistit el gerent de zona d’Ecovidrio, Roberto Fuentes, el conseller de Medi Ambient d’Eivissa i el coordinador de l’àrea Marina del GEN-GOB, entre d’altres personalitats i representants d’entitats i clubs premiats.

Ecovidrio és una entitat sense ànim de lucre encarregada de la gestió del reciclatge de residus a nivell nacional. El Consell de Formentera i el Consell d’Eivissa en col·laboració amb els Ajuntaments d’Eivissa, Sant Antoni de Portmany, Santa Eulària des Riu, Sant Joan i Sant Josep varen posar en marxa el passat mes de febrer la campanya “Vidre per Posidònia”, una iniciativa de sensibilització i comunicació dirigida als clubs esportius de futbol, perquè els esportistes prenguessin consciència de la importància de reciclar els residus d’envasos de vidre.

Per a la posada en marxa de la campanya, que es va desenvolupar durant el mes de febrer i al març va quedar aturada per mor de l’estat d’alarma, es varen col·locar dos contenidors en forma de pilota de futbol a les dues illes. A més, es varen decorar contenidors amb la imatge de campanya a les rodalies de les instal·lacions esportives dels clubs perquè els esportistes, entrenadors i familiars dipositessin els envasos de vidre.

Entrega de premis
En total, segons ha explicat el gerent d’Ecovidrio, s’han recollit 7.000 kg d’envasos de vidre durant el temps de durada de la campanya. Els beneficis de la campanya s’han destinat a uns premis que s’han repartit avui en aquest acte. Per una banda, s’han donat 1.000€ per aportació de material de submarinisme per a l’associació GEN-GOB, entitat que treballa en la conservació de les praderies de posidònia d’Eivissa i Formentera.

D’altra banda, s’han donat xecs per valor de 200€ per a l’adquisició de material esportiu als següents clubs: Penya Independent de Sant Joan per “Vidre al contenidor”; el CD Ibiza Islas Pitiusas per “Pitiuso de cor”; la SD Portmany per la difusió que va realitzar de la campanya en xarxes socials; i el Rapid CF per la iniciativa “Pinta el teu escut i recicla l’ampolla”.

Per part seva, el conseller de Medi Ambient del Consell de Formentera, Antonio J Sanz ha agraït a Ecovidrio la realització d’aquesta campanya que consciencia als boixos i al·lots dels clubs entorn a la importància del reciclatge del vidre, “ja que és una les fraccions que més capacitat de reciclatge té, i el seu correcte reciclatge és vital per la protecció del medi ambient”. A més, el conseller ha destacat que la campanya tengui caràcter pitiús perquè han de ser les dues illes les que protegeixen un recurs tan important com és la Posidònia oceànica.

Formentera incorporates details on mandatory masks into retooled covid-19 educational push

Cartell 2020 anticovid part 2The Formentera office of tourism unveiled today the revamped version of a campaign to educate tourists and remind islanders about the pillars of the local plan to stem the spread of covid-19. President and tourism consellera Alejandra Ferrer explained that “new rules requiring masks to be worn in the vast majority of public spaces meant we had to tweak our educational approach”.

“Protect Formentera, for you and for everyone!” is the slogan of the campaign highlighting the ground rules to stopping the spread of covid-19 on the island:

1. Mask must be worn
2. Members of different households must maintain a safe 1.5-metre distance
3. Frequent hand washing/sanitising.

A general infographic outlines the primary exceptions to the face covering rule while a second poster is geared toward minutia. Exceptions include beaches, pools, outside towns, during exercise and while eating or drinking, and the rule is not applicable for children under 6.

Educational posters can be found at display cases around the island, as well as restaurants, hotels and other establishments. Additional information is available on the tourism office website at formentera.es/covid. Text is in Catalan, Spanish and English in a bid to ensure the message reaches islanders and tourists alike. Commending the implication of both residents and business owners since the start of the public health crisis, President Ferrer called on the island’s visitors for similar assistance in the effort to keep Formentera safe: “The pandemic hasn’t gone anywhere, and a spike on our island could mean us starting all over again.”

As it did during the easing of lockdown restrictions, the Consell de Formentera has printed posters highlighting new guidelines in the wake of publication in the regional gazette, yesterday, of recently adopted measures on mobility, trade, restaurants and more.

On view: TRES

Cartell 2020 TresOn the activities calendar for Festes de Sant Jaume 2020, the Consell de Formentera presents TRES.

The exhibition is the product of the dialogue between artists Enric Majoral and Jordi Sarrà and the island of Formentera—one that, years in the making, is based on friendship and mutual esteem.

For the next three weeks, two venues —the Sala d’Exposicions “Ajuntament Vell” and “Far de la Mola” Centre for Education and Culture— invite the public to visit two synchronous displays (visitors to the latter will have until autumn to make the trip).

Sant Francesc’s Sala d’Exposicions “Ajuntament Vell” does the honours with the first of two staggered openings. The gallery’s doors open at 7.00pm on Tuesday 14 July, with the show staying open during normal hours until Saturday 1 August. Doors of the “Far de la Mola” will open at 12 noon on Wednesday 15 July, and the exhibition space will remain open during normal hours for the next three months.

An accompanying catalogue contains graphics and text prepared by Maia Creus, who holds a doctorate in Art History from the University of Barcelona’s College of Geography and History and is a member of the Association of Art Critics of Catalunya (ACAC). Creus, Majoral and Sarrà are, together with designer Martín de Azúa, currently working on a book titled Enric Majoral: La joia expandida.

TRES, a production of Trampolí Mecànic with support from the Consell de Formentera, was curated by Manolo Oya.

New enforcement guidelines for covid-19 containment in islands

foto 2020 regulacio covidConsell de Formentera president Alejandra Ferrer met today with the Balearic minister of public administrations, Isabel Castro, to discuss safety measures to prevent the spread of covid-19 on Formentera. Other attendees of the gathering included environment and inspections conseller Antonio J Sanz and chief of interior Josep Marí.

In the words of Formentera’s premiere, the Govern’s new orders, which come against the backdrop of the pandemic and are meant to ensure compliance with hygiene, distancing, face covering and other safety measures, “are as crucial as the coordination that’s emerging between forces of security, inspectors, lifeguards, Civil Protection and other volunteers”.

Ferrer pledged cooperation at every level of government, and voiced fresh praise for the responsibility displayed by islanders and island businesses that rallied to stem the spread of covid-19 on the island. “Now we’re asking our visitors to be responsible too”, she said. “Please, take heed of educational campaigns that will be ongoing.”

Castro, for her part, detailed the new Balearic guidelines on infractions of public health rules aimed at containing the pandemic. The minister said the goal was to develop “a unified and coordinated approach to enable expedited processing and resolution of fines for non-compliance with covid-19 rules”. “What we can’t abide is that a handful of irresponsible individuals jeopardise the fruits of a collective effort”, she said.

Offences and fines are classed as minor, serious and very serious based on the nature and circumstances of a particular infraction. Citing officers will also take into account factors like whether an individual deliberately violated rules, caused disproportionate damage or risk to public health, how many people were affected, if there were benefits to the offence in question, whether it was the first time, (if the offender is a business) the establishment’s place in the local business community and the nature of the business and commercial activity. Minor offences carry fines of €100 to €3,000; serious offences fines of €3,001 to €60,000 and very serious offences fines between €60,001 and €600,000.
