Municipality Day: “Brava” brand presented to the public through Renda Brava products Nova Sintra, Jun 24 (Inforpress) – The first collection by Renda Brava products project, which represents the Brava brand, was presented to the citizens of Brava, in an exhibition organized by CNAD and the City Hall, in Nova Sintra. At the inauguration, the director of the National Center for Art, Crafts and Design (CNAD), Irlando Ferreira, showed that the exhibition and the brand represent the achievement of a “very great” challenge, because working from São Vicente to Brava, through digital means, “is completely different” than when working in person. As he pointed out, since 2018, when the project began, they were already aware that it would be a challenge, but the motivation of the creatives, both designers and the hand-embroidered made by women, made the CNAD and everyone involved bet everything was possible so that the project could get to what it is today. According to this official, the hand-embroidered made by women in Brava no longer exists for several years, and the CNAD wanted with the project to bring hand-embroidered made by women that had identity and symbology with this island, explaining the care the team had in carrying out the work.

Cabo Verde to have new tobacco legislation in three to four months – responsible

Porto Novo, Oct 29 (Inforpress) – Cabo Verde will have, within three to four months, a new tobacco law, which is “on its way” for approval by the Council of Ministers, announced the Coordination Commission for Alcohol and other Drugs (CCAD).

Celso Monteiro, CCAD’s tobacco control focal point under the Ministry of Health and Social Security, said that the new “coming out” tobacco legislation replaces the 1995 law and will have as “key measure” the clinical treatment, ie consultations for tobacco addicts.

The new law, which will be passed in early 2020, also includes a sanctioning regime for offenders, provides for the increase of smoke-free spaces and also aims to “protect minors from smoking,” explained Celso Monteiro, who was on Monday in Santo Antão, where he presided over the inauguration of the tobacco control focal point on this island.

Santo Antão also received a workshop this Monday, during which the National Strategic Plan for Tobacco Control for 2019-2023 and the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control were presented.
