Lampedusa

Little things matter

Project
in brief

Environmental volunteering on Lampedusa Island is an ideal experience for people who love nature but also care about people. A week full of activities and initiatives created for a precious but vulnerable island. Travellers will be involved in educational and playful workshops for children living on the island, in trips inside the local reserve to clean the environment, in meetings to know and be aware about migrations on the island, in lessons about marine species living in Mediterranean Sea.

We usually plan ecotourism trip to Lampedusa in May and in October, so that the island and its people can welcome you in peaceful way and mood, as the territory is quite complex and usually under pressure during summer months. LOTO creates programs which are suitable to destinations, trying to organize out-of-season departures to fight over-tourism – the phenomenon which tends to create tensions and no-communication between inhabitants and visitors.

Curiosity: Lampedusa Island is 20 square kilometres large and has 5,000 inhabitants. It is nearer to Africa than to Sicily – it is 113 km far from Tunisia and 205 km far from Sicilian coasts. It is the most southern inhabited place in Italy.

The project is organized in partnership with Mar.Eco Osservatorio della Natura and Esther Ada Legambiente. It’s not only summer that makes a place…
