Cyclades Green Volunteers

About us

The Green Volunteers in the Cyclades program is going digital this year. We are rolling out a buffet of interesting insights and important actions (small and big) that everyone can take while in the Cyclades. Drawing from our network of experts and organisations protecting the natural beauty of the Cyclades, we invite a wide audience to be inspired and put hands, hearts and minds towards keeping the Cyclades flourishing while travelling or staying on the islands.

With a series of webinars and online content we’re aiming to enable interested active citizens and visitors of the Cycladic islands to support local environmental efforts and our network of organisations leading these efforts.

Watch our webinars to meet the people working to protect different aspects of Cycladic nature, and learn about the small but valuable actions you can take for harmonious ecological living in the cyclades. From spotting dolphins to carrying a jar for coffee, we’re making Cycladic travel green and right for flourishing.

We help the Cyclades become greener

Watch webinars with Cycladic initiatives and act to support our collective efforts.

Learn from projects protecting the Aegean about how you can act in support of their efforts. From sharing wildlife observations to making responsible seafood choices.
