One of the star activities of this mobility was to plant native tree species of the Canary Islands. This activity was designed thinking of improving the sustainability of this project and in favor of improving the reduction of the carbon footprint that mobility to the Canary Islands entails, the mobilities to this islands must always be by plane.
