Citizen participation workshops

 

Adeje’s Muslim community offer social harmony events

Adeje’s Muslim community, through the offices of the Canarian Islamic Federation and with the collaboration of the Adeje council and other bodies, are organising a series of social harmony events in Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Councillor Zebenzui Chinea Linares, who is in charge of the borough’s school for security and social harmony, announced details of these “days for the promotion of citizen participation”. He commented that “the school of security and social harmony is a training centre and a meeting place where we work to encourage active citizen participation through forums and debates, all designed to enrich peaceful co-existence and a fruitful exchange of ideas, contributing to the better evolution of our local society”.

The working days will be presented by expert psychologist Abdelkader Masfene, who will deal with issues under a number of themes, such as educational values, emotional challenges to social harmony, and respect and discipline. His presentations will be on November 8th, 9th and 10th at 5.30pm in the security school centre in Los Olivos.

There will be a round table discussion on citizen participation on Friday November 10th, with María Victoria Contreras Ortega, Eva Luz Cabrera García, Abdelkadre Masfene and Housein El Ouriachi, and the moderator will be Sergio Pau Hernández.

In parallel and from November 8th to 12th, a number of mosques in El Fraile, Los Cristianos, Vecindario and Maspalomas will be hosting workshops on education, co-existence, respect and citizenship.
