Making the most of their days off to visit places in the Girona area, and at the same time ending up with three or four 30-litre bags full of plastic, cans, cigarette butts and all kinds of rubbish collected during the day. This is what the young team of the European Solidarity Corps, volunteers of the MONA Foundation, have been doing over the last few months.
This action has been made visible today, on the 22nd of April, to commemorate Earth Day. The primate rescue centre in Riudellots de la Selva has joined the activities of the global climate action movement. This movement is being carried out simultaneously in many parts of the world with the aim of contributing to finding solutions to climate change, conservation and restoration of the environment, plastic and pollution, and climate alphabetisation and environmental education.
Any individual or organisation can sign up for the many events on the earthday.org website and join the hundreds of thousands of volunteers participating all over the world, from New York, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Nairobi and this year also in Riudellots de la Selva.
Sara, Giulia, Barbara, Brais, Rita… and everyone involved, thank you for your commitment to our planet!
