Foto flyer UOM 2018Formentera's Office of Social Welfare announces that tomorrow will mark the start of the Universitat Oberta per a Majors (“Open University for the Aged”) 2018 academic year. An initiative of the Universitat de les Illes Balears, the UOM is coordinated jointly by the Council, Fundació la Caixa and El Corte Inglés.

The seven-part lecture series will play out across Formentera's social centres for the elderly (three each in Sant Francesc and Sant Ferran and one in la Mola) and will focus on a range of topics chosen by the clubs themselves.

The Council backs activities that encourage learning and active lifestyles as a path to wellness and independence.
