COPT sets 2023 marketing calendar and agrees to start work on new strategic tourism plan for 2023-2030

foto 2022xi COPTFor the first time since summer's end, today the Organising and Promoting Tourism Committee (Comissió d'Ordenació i Promoció Turística, COPT) convened for a gathering chaired by Alejandra Ferrer, vice president and councillor of tourism, and Carlos Bernús, head of marketing of the Consell de Formentera. Also on the COPT are representatives from the local tourism sector, like the Hotel Association of Formentera, Chamber of Commerce, PIMEF, CAEB and political groups, including President Ana Juan on behalf of the PSOE.

Attendees reviewed occupancy data from the season and agreed on the date of a presentation of the tourist barometer, which will take place on 22 November.

Councillor Ferrer presented Formentera's proposed 2023 marketing plan, which is based on "promoting the island at fairs, workshops and presentations where we will highlight sustainability and showcase made-on-Formentera products, local heritage and cuisine, family tourism, and all the pre- and post-season programming". This proposal also includes the calendar of trade shows to be attended in Spain, Europe and other locations.

Attendees adopted the proposal, which envisions ongoing presentations of the destination to consolidate Formentera's two main issuing markets, Spain and Italy, and promote the low and mid-season. The proposal also involves reinforced efforts to boost the Portuguese, French and Dutch markets. Likewise, following the positive results of online campaigns in 2022, promotional actions will renewed across a variety of digital platforms.

In the last item on the agenda, attendees were briefed on the start of work on the new strategic tourism plan for 2023-2030, which will set marketing strategies, new tourism products and activities and tools to diversify and lengthen the traditional tourist season, all framed within the 2030 Agenda and the importance of circularity and sustainability.

Formentera pupils trained on child abuse prevention

foto 2022xi abus AThe Formentera Office of Social Welfare has hosted a training on preventing child sexual abuse conducted by the Support Network for Abused Children (Red de Ayuda a Niños Abusados, RANA). A series of sessions were geared towards years five and six of early-childhood education and years one, two and three of primary education at the La Mola, Sant Ferran and Mestre Lluís Andreu schools.

Children in early-childhood learning read "Kiko and the hand" (Kiko i la mà), which uses plain-spoken language to explain how to avoid inappropriate physical contact, how to react if necessary and how to ask for help.

The primary education sessions took place under the umbrella of "Shout Loud" (Crida ben fort), a programme built around Isabel Olid's story "Crida ben fort, Estela!", in which children learn to demand respect and take action in situations of sexual abuse.

RANA is a non-profit foundation in the Balearic Islands which works to prevent child abuse through education and networking activities.

Consell performs upkeep and conservation work at Sa Senieta

foto 2022xi senieta AThe Formentera Office of Heritage is pleased to report on recent work to maintain and preserve the Sa Senieta building.

In late August, part of the flat roof of this listed building was waterproofed, and in recent weeks, crews applied lime mortar in targeted consolidation work and whitewashed facades with lime to protect and preserve the walls.

These operations, part of a technical proposal prepared and led by a specialist in cultural asset restoration, were supervised at all times by the Formentera Office of Heritage. The approximate cost of the operations is €33,000.

Raquel Guasch, councillor of heritage, cast the actions as "necessary to maintaining and preserving Sa Senieta" and "a key step before we can draft plans to convert the former home into the future headquarters of the Museum of Formentera".

Funding is expected to come from the Balearic government, which currently has use rights to develop plans to convert Sa Senieta into one of three future headquarters of the island's museum.
