EAPS is Going Green

We firmly believe that we all have a part to play in preserving our future for generations to come, both locally and across the globe. As an individual as well as a community, we must contribute towards maintaining the natural ecological balance in the environment, and preserve the planet and its natural systems and resources.

We are  pleased to inform you that EAPS 2020 is going the extra mile and we are transforming our event into a green one. Here is what you can expect to see at our upcoming congress in Barcelona:
