Alfredo Barba Co-Founder
“At the very beginning of this adventure, I thoroughly enjoyed myself being part of the public campaign to raise awareness of the importance of sustainability in Mexico, where the authorities invited Y4PT to assist the promotion of different projects. I deeply believe Y4PT is proposing a change in the world by taking little concrete steps towards a better future”
