Sixty suggestion boxes are to be set up across the 21 local council areas of Madrid to encourage young people to have their say in how their city is run. Designed to resemble a robot, the boxes will be installed at local council offices and in schools and youth centres across the capital. Madrid councillor Ana Botella launched the new mailboxes, called BOT-21, at the Centro Cultural La Elipa during celebrations for the United Nations day for the rights of the child on 20 November, inviting all young Madrilenians to make their ideas and interests known. A virtual BOT-21 will also be created on the city councils website.
