ALSO: there will be a charity raffle, an auction and we will try to get to adoptee No. 1,000!
And if you haven’t yet, you can bring your old mobile phone to collaborate in our recycling campaign. You will be helping us, but that is not all, our action will have a broader repercussion, as you will be helping protect tropical forests. Also, for every mobile you bring, you’ll have a free raffle ticket.
… And by the way, for the first time this meeting will last more than half a day. We will have a bar with very reasonable prices for those who decide to buy some food. We just need you to confirm your attendance, to know how many drinks we have to buy -so we can invite you- and how many chairs we need 🙂 Just sign up before October 28th here
And to finish, we would like to recommend that you take the train that day. You can check train timetables for Sunday the 30th at Renfe. At 10.20 am there will be someone waiting for you at Riudellot’s train station to guide you in a nice 15-20 minutes walk along a forest and the Onyar river.
p.s: speeches will be in Catalan or Spanish. Many of the research posters are in English. Also, most of the staff is fluent in English, so they’ll be more than happy to answer to all your questions.
