| From Izquierda Unida-Verdes they denounce that the lack of aid for young people and the absence of future prospects is causing an exodus of these to the big cities | The left-wing party presents before the ordinary plenary session in October a proposal for the City Council to draw up a municipal youth plan through a citizen participation procedure IU-Verdes warns that the situation of youth in the medium term in Yecla is unsustainable.
Several generations have endured the previous crisis that frustrated the future expectations of hundreds of young people from Yecla and, foreseeably, many of them will be affected once again by another crisis that will delay their vital projects, they comment from the left wing.
. Thus, Alberto Martínez explains that “the remoteness of Yecla, the lack of leisure options, the absence of financial aid and the little diversification of the Yecla economy mean that many young people from Yecla cannot emancipate themselves or plan a life project in our city .
So, many choose to emigrate to never return and others, who decide to stay, cannot become emancipated because they cannot access a home.
" From IU-Verdes they believe that a town in which its young people do not want to stay has no future.
For this reason, they propose that a medium and long-term strategy adapted to Yecla be collectively drawn up that includes public actions in areas such as housing, employment, training, family and leisure.
In addition, they add that you have to plan according to the stage of youth, since a 16-year-old person does not have the same needs as a 28-year-old.
They point out that the problem is not just what young people can do in their spare time, but is a cross-cutting issue and affects multiple areas. According to Alberto Martínez “the youth plan must consist of a collective analysis of the situation and needs, in order to establish what actions the city council should carry out in the future and, also, know what issues must be claimed before the administrations public authorities from other territorial areas to solve the lack of help suffered by youth ”. Therefore, from the left-wing party they propose that this strategy be developed through citizen participation initiatives in which young people and the associative fabric of Yecla in general are involved.
Thus, they defend that within the framework of this procedure a multitude of actions can be carried out such as surveys with scientific rigor to young people of all ages, personal interviews with the associative fabric, sectorial round tables and the document can even be submitted to public exhibition so that anyone can contribute ideas.
"The more transparent the procedure is, and the more people participate, the better the future project that the youth of Yecla needs," says the IU-Verdes spokesperson.
