The Department of Youth offers alternative leisure options, as a response to a growing concern of the youth, who claim to have their own space for fun.
Free time is a very important piece for the emotional development of people, especially within a range of age in which character and personality are formed to a great extent, friendships are made and emotional and affective bonds are created. way more intense than in other stages of life.
We live in a time when the individual and passive leisure offers are very abundant, while the possibilities of active and collective leisure are much more limited. The phenomenon of the botellón is a symptom of this neglect. That is why from the city council we are involved in offering initiatives for a youth that has a desire to relate personally, to express themselves openly and to seek their leading role.
