València, August 4, 2020.- The general director of Children and Adolescents of the Generalitat Valenciana, Rosa Josefa Molero, and the director of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency (AVAF), Joan Llinares, have met to coordinate and design actions aimed at raise awareness against fraud and corruption in childhood and adolescence.
This initiative was proposed by the AVAF Participation Council’s fraud and corruption prevention work group and was subsequently approved by all the associations and social entities that are members of said Council.
After the meeting, the director of the AVAF declared that “among the functions entrusted to the Agency is the prevention of fraud and corruption. We believe that these values should be integrated from the earliest ages and hence the necessary collaboration with those institutions that work with these groups ”.
“If from childhood and adolescence we work to create an ethical conscience of rejection of fraud and corruption, we will be laying the foundations for a more just and integral society,” added Llinares.
In coordination with the General Directorate for Children and Adolescents, it is intended to establish channels for child participation through the network of municipal councils for children in the Valencian Community.
“In this way, we accommodate the premises set forth in the current Valencian Law on childhood and adolescence, which already aims to promote the participation of children and adolescents in the social, political and economic life of their environment, through a progressive incorporation into active citizenship ”, said the general director of Childhood and Adolescence Rosa Molero.
Currently the network of Valencian municipalities with municipal councils for childhood and adolescence covers 37 localities, distributed throughout the territory (8 in the province of Alicante, 6 in the province of Castellón and 23 in the province of Valencia)
Through them, a total of 1,023 boys, girls and adolescents are reached who act as counselors in their respective municipalities.
This initiative will allow the incorporation of children and adolescents as an active group that is incorporated in the development of an ethical conscience of rejection of fraud and corruption.
