70 young people from the Adeje secondary schools took part in an inter-cultural visit to find our more about different peoples living peacefully and side by side in the Adeje borough.
The Adeje council, via the department of youth, and in collaboration with the ‘Together in the Same Direction’ collective, took the students on what was called an intercultural tourism route with 70 students from IES Adeje secondary school. Youth councillor Zebenzui Chinea Linares said, “we are designing activities that continue to underline the importance of harmonious co-existence and respect for good practises as the fundamental pillars of our society, a society that recognises the importance of different cultures as tools for the evolution of better and more responsible citizens”.
The activity consisted of a series of visits to different cultural centres, one group to the Al- Ihsan Mosque in the Calle Piedra Rodonda, and the other to the local Hindu temple, in San Eugenio. In each they were met by representatives of the relevant cultures who explained a little bit about their beliefs, their role within the community and how they were integrating.
The last part of the day was a meeting of the groups together in the Avenida Palon Mayor, in El Galeón, where they shared their experiences and impressions of the visits.
