Galán thanked the Queen Letizia for supporting “the new generations, called to transform today's reality into their reality tomorrow; in a more globalized, fairer world with more solidarity.” He said it is crucial that talented people help to make the world a more sustainable place by protecting the environment and biodiversity.
