The San Fulgencio Town Council launches its Urban Agenda and Agenda 2030, the result of which will be the design of a local strategy that will reflect the model of municipality for the next decade and which will align municipal policies and projects with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), highlighting the sustainable management of the Town Council.
These goals aim to achieve equality among people, protect the planet and ensure prosperity. The Urban Agenda 2030 will identify and prioritise the needs of the residents of the municipality. To this end, a process of citizen participation has been designed to gather their vision.
This strategy for the future is based on the work developed during the last years where the government team of San Fulgencio has begun to implement sustainable development measures in a cross-cutting manner in all municipal areas. The Council Chamber was the setting for the presentation of this project which, as indicated by the mayor, José Sampere Ballester, “the Urban Agenda 2030 will be the roadmap for San Fulgencio to become a sustainable municipality where all our neighbours participate in its creation”.
Along with the drafting of these strategic documents, the San Fulgencio Anti-Fraud Plan will be drawn up in parallel. The drafting of these documents means being prepared to be able to access supra-municipal aid and European Funds to help finance any type of project.
In this first meeting, the Steering and Monitoring Committees have been set up, the participatory process has been validated, which will take place in September, and the basic lines of action have been designed that will serve to draw up the strategic framework and future action plans of the Urban Agenda 2030 of San Fulgencio.
The drafting of these three plans is subsidised by the Provincial Council of Alicante, so the municipality will not have to use its own funds to draft these actions.
The specialised consultancy firm in charge of drafting these documents, Omawa Huella Ecológica, works around the decalogue of the Urban Agenda 2030 that includes the planning and rational use of the territory, the revitalisation of the city, the prevention and reduction of the effects of climate change, the sustainable management of waste and the promotion of the circular economy; promoting sustainable mobility, fostering social cohesion, boosting the urban economy, guaranteeing access to housing, leading digital innovation and improving participation and governance.
