The 2nd Cooperatives Market under the EJE project in the Girona counties

During the inauguration, prizes were awarded to the winning designs of the market bags


On 31 May a new edition of the Cooperatives Market was held within the EJE project in the province of Girona. The market had 16 stalls for the sale of products, run by cooperatives created by pupils from 12 schools in the Girona counties that had taken part in this initiative to promote entrepreneurship.

The event also served to announce the winners of the competition for designing posters for the market bags, in which Girona secondary schools also took part.

The inauguration of the 2nd Cooperatives Market was attended by Joaquim Bosch (Head Teacher of the Narcís Xifra Secondary School and coordinator of the EJE Valnalón project in Girona), Mariona de Puig (President of the Business Culture and Training Commission of Girona Chamber of Commerce) and Mònica Margarit (General Manager of the Prince of Girona Foundation).

The prizes were handed out by Josep Xirgo (Chief Inspector with the Education Department of the Government of Catalonia) and Jesús Cuesta (Gabinet de Disseny Gràfic). Mr Xirgo made an educational assessment of the two winning posters, while Mr Cuesta offered a technical evaluation of them.

The schools that won the design competition were:

  • 1st Prize. Josep Brugulat Secondary School in Banyoles
  • 2nd Prize. Santiago Sobrequés Secondary School in Girona


The day was organised jointly by Girona Chamber of Commerce and the Prince of Girona Foundation, which foster the programme Empresa Joven Europea (EJE) of the Valnalón Educational Consortium.
