Make it Blue
Every summer international volunteers come to the Amalfi Coast for volunteering activities for the sea, the beach and the mountains. Important activities of the project are clean ups on beaches and in the mountains, environmental education activities and cultural exchange. In addition, there are workshops on sustainable lifestyles, recycling and language exchange as well as actions on local food production and community gardening. Through this variety of activities, volunteers gain a deeper understanding of sustainability.
La Baia in Fondo al Sentiero
This program combines conservation, monitoring and communication in order to protect one of the treasures of the Peninsula: the Bay of Ieranto. This project is carried out in collaboration with the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella and with the Italian Foundation for the Environment (FAI). It consists of 100 days of activities during the summer season to reduce illegal activities in the bay (motor navigation, anchoring, fishing) and to promote ecotourism.
Since 2013 the MPA of Punta Campanella has hosted European Volunteers thanks to the cultural exchange programs promoted by the European Commission. Marea Outdoors takes part in this initiative with tutoring and mentoring activities with a group of young activists that work for the park. The role of the Association is to lead the group of volunteers during clean ups on the beach and in the sea with kayaks.
