07 Jul Arona picks up the most relevant state award for her work …
The Councilor for Tourism of the City of Arona, David Pérez, picked up last night in Bilbao the prize Juan Luis Marroquin in the category of Friend of the Deaf Community, an award given by the Spanish Confederation of Deaf People-CNSE, the national organization of associations representing this group.
The award, shared with the former President of the Government José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, who also attended the event, recognizes the work that Arona does in the integration of deaf people, both for the work done in making its public facilities accessible and for the inclusion of the Spanish sign language in its activities, the training actions it carries out in the knowledge and use of this language or by the specialized service it provides through the Citizen Attention Service (SAC).
The City Council of Arona has made accessibility one of the pillars of its governance, working to include the different groups in a transversal manner, involving areas ranging from Youth to Works, including Tourism, Holidays , Culture, Education, Sports or Social Services, among others.
Not only that. From areas such as those of Youth and Education, continuous training is offered in the knowledge of the Spanish sign language, thus forming an important quarry of people capable of offering their services in this field.
All this has allowed that all the institutional acts that Arona organizes have interpreters of the Spanish sign language and that most of the municipal spaces have facilities adapted to deaf people or users of facilitating instruments of listening.
Both factors have been decisive at the time that the State Confederation of Deaf People-CNSE has awarded Arona.
