With the decision to join forces to make Mérida a senior-friendly city, Mayor Renán Barrera reaffirmed his commitment to form strategic alliances to improve the quality of life for the most vulnerable sectors of the population.

With this objective in mind, the Municipal President signed a collaboration agreement between the Mérida City Council and the commercial chain “Oxxo” to set up a training and digital inclusion classroom for older adults at the Comprehensive Center for the Fulfillment of Older Persons “Renacer,” located in the Juan Pablo II neighborhood.

Barrera Concha pointed out that this collaborative agreement allows the private sector to consolidate its actions focused on social responsibility, as providing a digital classroom at the “Renacer” Center, which complements the one already delivered at “Armonía,” will give older adults the opportunity to learn new technological skills.

The Mayor recalled that in 2022, the Municipal Council for the Development of an Age-Friendly Community for Older Persons in Mérida was established, following the city’s adherence to the Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities.

Through this Council, he explained, inclusive and recreational actions are promoted and encouraged for this highly important sector in Mérida, which enriches the city daily with its contributions and social legacy.

He also expressed gratitude to the Tec Milenio University because, thanks to its social generosity, it provided the digital educational platform that the Municipal DIF will use for the training tasks of older adults.

During his intervention, José Arturo Landero Alcántara, manager of Oxxo Plaza Uxmal, emphasized that when there is social willingness on the part of the government and companies, it is possible to continue working as a team to progress, create more opportunities for everyone, and achieve better results.

Thanks to this joint work with the City Council, he added, the older adults of Mérida will have more opportunities for personal and professional development.
