The first day of the Catalonian-Swedish exchange!

The first day of our exchange started with a combination of history and future. We began with Catalan history while discovering the Madrona castle and grounds. The future of Catalonia and the future of the rest of Europe were introduced through discussions about independence and green politics.

But firstly, we got to know each other!

During the discussions there were a lot of questions. The differences between the political systems in Sweden and in Spain showed to be quite large. We could see that it effects how our political movements functions and work. One surprising fact for me, was that the Spanish constitution was written by people who did not think that the people were ready for democracy, and to this day, each vote does not weigh equally throughout the country.

We did also discuss the independence movement of Catalonia and of other parts of Spain as well. It was really interesting to get to know Spain and to try to understand the country. Hopefully we will have reached an even deeper understanding at the end of this week!

Inauguració d’activitats

20160815_115441El dia 20 d’agost varem fer la primera activitat de l’associació amb invitats de Suècia, Canàries, Tarragona, la Generalitat, representant del Bisbat, a part de membres de l’associació  i veïns de Madrona. Una reunió molt fructifera amb una xarla també sobre futurs intercanvis juvenils. El lloc és idoni per fer trobades interculturals o per altres tipus de grups.

Però es podrà organitzar altres tipus d’events, com exposicions, horts ecològics, visites guiades a les ruines de l’antic castell de Madrona o a l’Esglèsia Sant Pere Madrona a part del senderisme que es pot realitzar seguint la GR3 que passa per aquí.

La idea de l’associació és promoure i preservar el patrimoni cultural de Madrona que està situat en un espai protegit de la xarxa Natura 2000. Som una organització sense ànims de lucre i ens dirigim a tothom amb un interès per la història, cultura i la natura.
