The counselor for Women, Equality, LGTBI, Families and Social Policy also bets to listen to young people to know what they need to stay in the village of their parents and grandparents
The vice president of the regional government, Isabel Franco, will attend the Night in Vela de Aledo, which at one of its stops contemplates the possibility of making a wish in the wish tree.
"Tonight, our desire as a Government is for the youth to travel again in a more evident and visible way through the streets of the municipality, thus attending to one of our strategic political lines that is to develop policies for the emptied Spain," said the counselor of Women, Equality, LGTBI, Families and Social Policy.
Isabel Franco considers it important that young people enjoy all the attractions that Aledo has and that is why she will support the proposal of the local mayor, Francisco Javier Andreo, to promote the promotion of public housing, but understands that it is also essential to develop another type of initiatives such as "promoting investments, favoring entrepreneurship and, above all, listening to the youngest population to know what they need to stay and live in the village of their parents and grandparents."
Aledo is one of the five municipalities in the Region threatened by depopulation.
According to data from the National Statistics Institute, it has gone from 991 inhabitants in 1996 to 945 in 2017.
La Noche en Vela is an event that boosts indoor tourism, has been awarded as the best sustainable development project by the University of Murcia for being an example of collaboration and neighborhood community and also constitutes a socio-economic impulse that helps to stop depopulation in the town.
