ICTS SOCIB gives workshops on climate change in Cala Millor to raise awareness and involve young people in the framework of the LIFE AdaptCalaMillor project

Within the framework of LIFE AdaptCalaMillor, the workshops have been held in five educational centers in the municipalities of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Son Servera, as well as in four summer schools in the area, involving 731 participants.

During 2023, the ICTS SOCIB has carried out several workshops on climate change perception in four kindergarten and primary schools (CEIP Punta de n’Amer, CEIP Sant Miquel, CEIP Jaume Fornaris i Talavull and CEIP Na Penyal) and one secondary school (IES Puig de Sa Font) in the municipalities of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Son Servera. In addition, the ICTS SOCIB has given workshops in the four summer schools in the area (Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Son Servera, Sa Coma and Cala Millor). Altogether, these workshops have involved up to 731 participants between 7 and 14 years old. The main objective of these workshops is to raise awareness and increase the participation of young people in the decision-making process to select and prioritize strategies to adapt to climate change on the beach of Cala Millor. Through multi-response surveys, participants have shared their thoughts, concerns and visions about climate change and its effects on Cala Millor. This activity has not only allowed to collect valuable data, but has also led to a deeper understanding of environmental awareness in primary and secondary school students. In addition, through the “Photo Game”, participants have traveled back in time, exploring historical images of Cala Millor, thus stimulating conversations about the changes in the environment and the impacts of extreme weather events.

“From the ICTS SOCIB we encourage actions that promote the participation of a committed and informed society in the municipalities of Cala Millor, with the aim of actively involving them in an open decision-making process to select and prioritize strategies for adaptation to climate change, taking into account social needs and demands”, said Aida Pericás, PhD student at the ICTS SOCIB and member of the LIFE AdaptCalaMillor project. In this sense, during this period, ICTS SOCIB has also met with four local associations (Associació de la Tercera Edat de Son Carrió, Associació de Jubilats i Pensionistes de Cala Millor, Associació de la Tercera Edat de Son Servera and Associació de Famílies d’Alumnes del CEIP Sant Miquel a Son Carrió), with the participation of a total of 29 people. In addition, 44 representatives of local, insular and autonomous public administrations have been interviewed. The purpose of these meetings and interviews is to involve the interested parties from the beginning of the project.

In the future, in addition to involving more primary and secondary schools, local associations and representatives of public administrations, “these types of actions will also be extended to the tourism sector, by involving both tourists visiting the area and employees of the tourist sector of Cala Millor in these surveys and meetings”, said Aina García, transfer and innovation technician at the ICTS SOCIB and member of the LIFE AdaptCalaMillor project.
