Promoting Renewable Energy
Project

Promoting Renewable Energy

Despite its great solar potential, less than 1% of Ibiza and Formentera’s electricity comes from renewable sources. The big power plant operated by GESA on the outskirts of d´Alt Vila is the main source of electricity for the islands. But for decades this power plant has also been the main source of local air pollution,...

Water Campaign
Project

Water Campaign

A water campaign by Amics de La Terra focused on the quality of drinking water in Ibiza. This is a widely shared public concern and provided a platform from which to inform people about other water problems on the island, such as scarcity and desalination plants, while lobbying the municipalities for solutions. The campaign was carried out...

GEN-GOB Core Funding
Project

GEN-GOB Core Funding

Born in 1982 in response to increasing environmental havoc in Ibiza and Formentera, GEN-GOB Eivissa is Ibiza’s oldest and most active environmental NGO. Between 2012 and 2013, €26,000 in core funding was granted in order to strengthen its work at a time when critical public funding for environmental NGOs in Spain has been dramatically reduced.

Deixalles Core Funding
Project

Deixalles Core Funding

The Deixalles Foundation provides training and employment to long-term unemployed people, mainly in the field of environmental services. To support its work, €15,000 in core funding was granted to Deixalles in 2012.

Environmental Legal Fund
Project

Environmental Legal Fund

In March 2011, we established a legal fund to enable local NGOs (GEN-GOB and Amics de la Terra) to take action against development projects and public works that severely threaten the environment. An exemplary success in the courts for the NGOs has been the halting of the urbanization of Cap Llentrisca (Llentrisca Creek), an area highly valued...
