“For all of us who have worked so long to create MeteoHeroes it is a gigantic honour to be part of the Summer Camp of a legendary team like the immense Real Madrid thanks to its Foundation. We are thrilled to know that while children have fun with MeteoHeroes they can also have the hope that climate change can be addressed – and that together we will succeed”, shared Luigi Latini, CEO of Meteo Expert.
