The British and German Embassies in Quito have organised two events to celebrate the planet on Environment Day.

The Embassies are pleased to invite the media to cover both events.

Environment Day - Renewable Energy

As part of joint global efforts between the British and German governments to raise awareness about environmental conversation, we have prepared brief conferences to provide information about important projects being carried out in this field in Ecuador, and more specifically in the Galápagos Islands.

Date: Tuesday 9th September at 16h00 Location: Sheraton Hotel (Bolívar suite), Naciones Unidas Avenue and Rep. de El Salvador.

We sincerely hope to be able to count on your valuable presence at this event. We would kindly request that you confirm your attendance by telephone: 2970 800 extension 2203/2238.

GALAPAGOS 3D Documentary

We will be showing the first 3D documentary about the Galápagos Islands in order to promote conservation on the islands. It is a British documentary filmed in 3D technology by Atlantic Productions and narrated by the famous presenter and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, in the Galápagos Islands.

The showing of the documentary is part of the joint global effort between the British and German governments to raise awareness about environmental conservation. There will also be a raffle where cruises and tours of the Galápagos Islands will be given as prizes, with all proceeds going to the preservation of the ‘pinzón de manglar’ (mangrove finch), via a project implemented by the Charles Darwin Foundation and the Galápagos Conservation Trust.

Date: Tuesday, 9th September at 19h00 (the showing will begin at 19h30) Location: Cinemark – Plaza de las Américas, Avenue República and Naciones Unidas
