Saturday, 21st April 2018
From: 10:30
Until: 17:00

The seminar on Climate Change & Sustainability addresses two aspects of special relevance.

Firstly, presentation on the latest advances in scientific knowledge regarding global warming and climate change and, secondly, the debate on proposals that establish the steps that citizens, individually, collectively and institutionally, can carry out to reduce our so-called "ecological footprint".

This seminar will be held in conjunction with the Inst. Cervantes of Manchester, and will be part of a cycle of activities around “The week of the Earth”.
