The Aeolian Islands Preservation Fund (AIPF) helps preserve the exceptional beauty and natural value of the Aeolian Islands, currently threatened by tourism development and by the over-exploitation of natural resources.
To this end the AIPF raise money from people from all around the world who care about the future of the Aeolian Islands. We use funds raised to support environmental, artisanal and sustainable initiatives, carried out by organizations and associations already present in Sicily and in Italy. AIPF is an initiative started by friends of the Aeolian Islands, who want to give this fragile ecosystem the protection it deserves.
In recent years, public concern about environmental issues in Aeolian Islands has grown, and we all need to do some efforts to change the islands unsustainable growth patterns. Environmental organizations in Sicily and in
Italy can do an excellent work, but with very limited resources. Now is the time to support them and to capitalise on the growing public interest in green issues. Participation in the AIPF represents a unique opportunity to get personally engaged, and to make a diference to the future of the Aeolian Islands. AIPF has ambitious yet realistic plans for the future.
