WORK : Volunteers will be asked to collect wastes along the coastline of the island during the project. The activities will be concentrated mainly in the morning hours. The volunteers, together with local groups, will carry out various activities: cleaning the beaches, collecting plastic material (bottles, polystyrene boxes, corks, abandoned fishing tools) for disposal. Volunteers will be accompanied to the places of collection of waste either by car, or on foot along the paths of trekking, or by sea with boats, while the waste will always be collected and brought to the dump by sea by specialized personnel. Please, be prepared for a physically demanding work.

LOCATION AND LEISURE : The island of Giglio is part of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park and the "Cetacean Sanctuary" protected area. The Island of Giglio, situated opposite Monte Argentario, covers an area of 21 square kilometers, is the second largest island in the Tuscan Archipelago and is renowned for its natural beauty: the crystal-clear emerald sea, with its rich and fishy seabed, frames an area that is still 90% wild. In addition to its natural heritage of beaches and coastline, the island has two towns, Giglio Castello, a charming medieval village that stands on the heights of the island, and Giglio Porto, the island's only port, small and picturesque, with multicolored houses and a clear sea.
Isola del Giglio has a resident community of about 1000 people, mainly engaged in tourist activities, strongly linked to their territory and always used to dealing with new visitors.

PARTNER : The workcamp is organized by Proloco, a cultural organization, that has among its institutional tasks the valorization of the natural, cultural and historical resources of Giglio island, as well as the realization of initiatives of touristic interest. The Pro.Loco promotes the workcamp in collaboration with the municipality and a network of associations in the area: Lega Navale, Giglio Ambiente and a Consortium of local waste companies, which work together every year to clean the island's coastline.
PROJECT : The Mediterranean Sea, although constituting less than 1% of the planet's water surface, is the sixth area of accumulation of waste in the world. Plus, during winter storms, waves dump an important amount of waste, mainly plastic. And an Island like ours, which lives mainly on tourism, the care and maintenance of its natural resources is the first ticket to see, as well as the minimum requirement to allow our visitors to live the fantastic experience they deserve. The objective of this project is to reduce the waste on the island’s coast which would benefit the environment and tourism. By joining this workcamp you will contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals: Climate Action-SDG13; Life below water-SDG14.
