Langai Walking in Teguise The founding members are Salvador Quesada Machin, an actor known for his concerns about damage to our environment.

Elvira Heras, actress, who has taken part in Climate Project Spain, which was started by Al Gore with the aim to train 200 experts in climate change.

Pedro Herrera, composer, musician and humorist who has staged numerous performances to highlight concerns about our planets resources.
