Presentation of draft Energy Transition and Climate Change Plan

Wednesday 29 June at 7.00pm, a presentation will be given of the Balearic Government's draft Energy Transition and Climate Change Plan so people can participate in preparations with first-hand contributions. The aim of these encounters is to shape the regional roadmap on how legislation will be deployed broadly, since this Plan must establish a crosscutting framework to orient and plan the objectives, policies and steps to comply with the Climate Change and Energy Transition Act, as well as accelerate the 40% reduction in polluting emissions in the Balearic Islands by 2030.

Formentera joins push for smoke-free beaches

foto 2022 platges sense fumToday Ana Juan, president of the Consell de Formentera, joined volunteers of the Spanish Cancer Association (Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer, AECC) for an AECC-led information session at Platja des Pujols. President Juan pointed out that in 2020 the beach in Es Pujols became the first on Formentera to join the Balearic Directorate General of Public Health's "Smoke-Free Beaches" (Platges sense fum) push. Today some twenty island beaches are party to the campaign. The president indicated that efforts are under way to incorporate more smoke-free spaces on the island.

"It is this administration's job to promote and encourage healthy habits", she said. Platges sense fum is also an ecological initiative to highlight the importance of not littering in natural areas like beaches, where plastics and cigarette butts are the most common waste items.

The crew is also performing forest fire drills, including one last weekend near Sa Roqueta in Es Pujols. The efforts are meant to build fire crews' skills responding to real accidents, handling hose lines, communicating and operating vehicle pumps, not to mention highlight the functions of each team member. Three firefighters and a service chief participated in exercises that involved two fire engines and a light vehicle.

Josep Marí, councillor of interior, explained that the fire department is asking islanders and visitors alike to "take all the necessary precautions given an already high fire risk this season which the heat wave has pushed to new heights".

Formentera presents comments on Maritime Transport Decree

The Consell de Formentera has submitted comments regarding the draft decree laying down special arrangements for the provision of maritime transport between the Balearic Islands. The comments highlight three key areas:

-Guaranteeing minimum service on the regular Formentera-Eivissa line, particularly early-bird and late-night service. The Consell has pushed for set time slots, which are envisioned in the Maritime Transport Law, but not the Decree. The Consell's comments included a proposal for minimum time slots, as well as arguments in favour of minimum connections for freight transport.

-Avoiding overlapping and/or excessive service in summer on the regular Formentera-Eivissa line. The Consell requests that environmental sustainability studies be carried out during the first two years of the Decree's application and that the solutions be applied in the third year.

-The Consell requests that excursions between Eivissa and Formentera guarantee universal accessibility as established by legislation in the Balearic Islands. A grace period could be envisioned.
