Proposals for children and young people
More scholarships for study and another library in the North zone; creating a food bank in Tres Cantos, having self-managed entertainment venues for young people or a cheap means of transportation, in addition to organizing a multicultural event, were the requests of the adolescent COPIA.
A suggestion box, more baseball and badminton courts, painting the water tower, an amphitheater in Central Park for outdoor performances or support groups to talk about their problems, were the suggestions of the children’s COPY.
