Attendees of the session were briefed on how local associations voted on 20 projects presented as part of the initiative, known in Catalan as Pressupostos Participatius.

Ana Juan, President of the Consell de Formentera, praised associations' efforts to participate in this process and described the selection of projects as "a reflection of our local society". For her part, Vanessa Parellada, Councillor of Citizen Participation, stressed that the projects in health, social inclusion, environment and culture demonstrate the importance of solidarity for the people of Formentera.

Formentera associations will choose from among 20 projects for participatory budgets of 2022

foto 2022 pressu parti BAt 7.30pm yesterday, attendees of the second meeting on participatory budgets in 2022 reviewed the list of the projects that have been presented. All told, 35 projects were reviewed, 13 from among the projects presented in 2022 and 22 from those projects which were interrupted in 2020 due to COVID-19. Of the 35 projects, four from 2022 and eleven from 2020 were not voted on because they are either already being implemented in other ways or are not viable for a participatory spending initiative. In the end, therefore, local associations must choose from among 20 proposals.

Ana Juan, President of the Consell de Formentera, praised "the broad participation of all associations that have submitted projects" and encouraged them to "relay the proposals to their associates and vote for those that best suit their preferences".

The Consell de Formentera has set aside €325,000 to develop the projects that the associations rank the highest. Vanessa Parellada, Councillor of Citizen Participation, stressed that most of the projects "deal with sustainability, youth, sports or health - proof that Formentera's associations are concerned with the good of society as a whole". Associations have two weeks from today to cast their votes. The related form is available online and must be filled out and submitted to the OAC or OVAC.

Voting ends on 26 April 2022. The results of the vote will be presented at the final session of Pressupostos Participatius 2022, to be held in the days ahead.

Practical e-government workshops for associations

The Formentera Office of Citizen Participation is pleased to report that during the months of April and May there will be practical workshops to give participants the tools to access government services online.

Workshops will mainly focus on obtaining and using the certificado digital used to sign official documents online, as well as other important points on how associations can engage virtually with government. As such, the classes are intended for board members, who are authorised to take such steps.

The workshops will be for small groups and programmed based on demand in the morning or afternoon/evening. Registrations must be completed by 8 April and are handled via e-mail at participacio@conselldeformentera.cat. Participants will need to bring a personal computer.

Vanessa Parellada, Councillor of Citizen Participation, cast the courses as "a way to help association representatives to obtain their digital certificate to engage with administrations electronically". She added, "This way islanders will be able to complete formalities faster and more easily, without having to travel".
 
Under new rules, correspondence with the Register of Associations of the Balearic Government must be done online. "We're making the most of this situation to enhance islanders' familiarity with digital tools so they can interact with any administration: Balearic, state or Consell de Formentera", said Parellada.

Depending on demand, a list will be kept if there are individuals not in associations who are interested in this training too. To that end, please send requests to participacio@conselldeformentera.cat.
