The Aeolian Islands Preservation Fund helps preserve the exceptional beauty and natural value of the archipelago, to encourage a more sustainable, and responsible tourism, promoting the unique experiences that the local habitat and natural phenomenon offer.
The Fund raises money from people internationally that care about the Aeolian’s future. Funds raised are dedicated to support specific environmental, artisanal and sustainable initiatives, carried out by local individuals, organizations, or other Italian groups that try to influence the islands to be more respectful about the environment. In 2015 a group of lovers and friends of the ‘Aeolian Islands’ decided to create a Foundation, with the idea to make a difference and protect the nature. Funds raised for the AIPF are invested to support work identified as a priority: AIPF is minimal, with one person as a coordinator in charge of day-to-day management and coordination work, assisted by advisors and professionals with a long-standing expertise in environmental work.
