The Town Hall is quite aware of environmental issues and has been supporting local enviromental projects such as Huerto de la Cora y Huerto del Mundo about Eco-agriculture and seeds preservation, as well as suporting the local NGO aeurooeGuardabosquesaeuro who deals with environmatl education for children.Guardabosques and De Amicitia made an agreement of cooperation for the realization of an international volunteering workcamp which will support summer camps with various workshops in English.
