Topics will include climate targets, energy associations, solutions for recycling, and legislation to fight climate change.

The BritishSpanish Society is run by a team of hard working volunteers. During these challenging times, we are working even harder to carry on offering quality, engaging, interesting and entertaining events for our members and friends as best as we can.
If you book and are then unable to attend, we hope you don’t mind if we treat your payment as a donation to the charity, due to the administrative time it would take us to refund this relatively small amount.
