About us

IBIZA - a good example of environmental awarenessIBIZA - a tourist destination where a joint responsibility creates a sustainable futureIBIZA - respects its earthly resources and conserves its natural heritage from irreparable destruction

We believe that the famous island of Ibiza, with its multinational population (around 100 resident nationalities, plus more than 2 million tourist visitors each year), is an ideal location to make a showcase of sustainable practices which can then be transmitted to virtually everyone in the world, due to the high level of media attention the island receives.

We would like to see Ibiza to become a good example of environmental awareness, a real transition island in view of the twin challenges of impending peak oil and the accelerating effects of climate change. We wish to promote the island as a tourist destination where the population and visitors are working in harmony with the local authorities, sharing a joint responsibility to create a sustainable future for all.


Following the initiative of the 'transition town' movement which started some years ago in the UK (www.transitiontowns.org) and which is becoming ever more popular, we believe that the island of Ibiza, with its multinational population (around 100 resident nationalities, plus more than 2 million tourist visitors each year), is an ideal location to make a showcase of sustainable practices which can also be seen by virtually everyone in the world.

The challenges we face are threefold: the scarcity of fossil fuels, the pollution generated by its use and the threat of climate change issue.
