GF Victoria hosts the solidarity conference for the benefit of La Palma

The funds raised will go entirely to the project ‘Uno por La Palma’ of the Rotary Club

On October 5th, GF Victoria’s Las Olas Showroom hosts the conference ‘Exploring the Climate Crisis’, an initiative of a charitable nature for the benefit of the Rotary Club’s ‘Uno por La Palma’ project. The event, organized by Rotarians and the Planet Future Foundation of Miami, in collaboration with GF Hotels, aims to raise funds for the construction of a school to replace one or more of the schools destroyed by the eruption.

Pancho Campo, president of the Miami Planet Future Foundation, will lead the conference to analyse the impacts of climate change and share with the audience the experience of his travels and expeditions. Those attending the event will be able to enjoy unique audio-visual material that has been recorded by Pancho Campo in places as remote as Greenland or the Arctic, diving in different coral reefs in the Caribbean and in sinkholes in the Riviera Maya, climbing glaciers in Iceland or exploring forests and rivers of Canada.

At the end of the conference, there will be a round table on how climate change is affecting Tenerife. “Climate change has become the main threat to our society and its impacts are already evident throughout the planet. The need to adopt drastic measures to preserve the environment and mitigate the climate crisis is urgent”, highlights Pancho Campo.

Pancho Campo has been studying the impacts of climate change since 2003 and with his company he has organized major events and conferences on the subject in different parts of the world. At these events, he has had the opportunity to work closely with some of the world’s leading experts, but above all with leaders of the stature of President Barack Obama, the Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, and with the Nobel Prize winner and former Vice President of the United States Al Gore, with whom he has also been collaborating for more than 15 years.

To access the conference, which will begin at 7:00 p.m., it is necessary to register and make a donation of 5 euros through the tomaticket.es platform.
