As part of the activities of the Citizen Participation Week, the mayor of Zapopan, Juan José Frangie, headed the Solemn Municipal Assembly of Citizen Participation, an instance that brings together the representation of the Municipal Council and the Zone Councils.
During the assembly, the mayor highlighted the creation of spaces in which the participation of girls, boys and young people in the political decisions of Zapopan is weighted and thus create a culture of collaboration.
“We have a great challenge as a Government, that young people participate in decision-making. We get tired of repeating that young people are the future of our country, we should open spaces for them to participate and tell us what they want and need,” Frangie said.
For his part, the president of the Municipal Council for Citizen Participation of Zapopan, Bardomiano Galindo López, presented the work plan for 2023, in which he highlighted that next year’s Participatory Budget exercise will focus on the creation and improvement of public.
“We need that this year the Participatory Budget be oriented solely and exclusively to the recovery of public spaces, parks, sports units, linear parks, walkways, libraries, social centers, community centers, cultural centers and other public squares,” he said.
The Citizen Participation Week takes place from August 15 to 24 and will include activities such as recreational and cultural workshops for girls and boys from the municipalityphotography exhibitions, painting murals, movies and plays, among others.
The activities were inaugurated with the unveiling of the “Colors of Governance” murals placed on the pillars of Line 3 of the Light Rail, outside the Zapopan Comprehensive Service Center (CISZ) and continue this Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. hours with the presentation of the stand up “Government, comedy and society”, in the auditorium of the University Center for Administrative Economic Sciences (CUCEA).
