Young people from Churriana de la Vega participate in a socio-educational project for inclusion

A group of young churrianeros participated in a program by the Department of Social Services and the Elderly of the City Council of Churriana de la Vega. Participants aged 14-17 years have been taught how to recognize problems and situations in their immediate environment and then communicate these issues via the radio. They also valued the important aspects of inclusion, equality, and empathy with the older residents.

Participants have been interested in taking control of a radio station. Interviewing great athletes has allowed them to step into the shoes of journalists for a day. This includes Francis Sanchez, former Spanish wheelchair basketball player and now a member the CD Churriana-Granada Integra. He was able to tell Federico Garcia Lorca, IES student, about the motorcycle accident that left him with limited mobility and how he managed to travel the globe playing basketball.

Young people who use a shelter for minors had the opportunity to interview Tony Perkales, Granada trap singer, to find out how he achieves his musical dreams despite the stigmas associated with the urban music industry.

They also learned about the history and management of some unique women such as Esther Lopez, the Councilor for Health, or Susana Duran (Director of the Home Assistance Unit), who spoke at the microphones about their experiences during the past state of health alarm. Rosa and Luis, a home worker and health worker at Churriana Residence were among those who shared their most intimate stories with us.

Luis Rodriguez, the Councilor for Social Services of Churriana de la Vega explained that this workshop had "helped our young people to develop empathy with their elders but also with the rest of their municipality", as he learned about the stories of wheelchair basketball players or the efforts made by managers of assistance units. This highlighted important aspects for their training such as the inclusion of persons with disabilities and the importance of women in management positions.
