THE
PURPOSE

Projeto Gea - Σχέδιο Γης is a voluntary movement for a better planet. 

This project was born in Faro on Christmas Day 2019, with the initial purpose of creating a Christmas tradition together that was different and meaningful. But we were fooled! Life knew better.

Since we couldn't do something for the community, we decided to do something for the planet. So we went litter picking in Ria Formosa. We really enjoyed the experience and the feeling. So, the Christmas tradition became a weekly tradition.

We started doing cleanUp campaigns in neighbourhoods, parks, and protected areas every weekend. And just like that, Projeto Gea was created, with a name that is half Portuguese and half Greek.

Little by little, people started to see our campaigns and began to integrate our actions.

In this way, our goal became to make people in the community aware of the existence and quantity of waste in the environment and the problem of waste pollution in general. 

Through our campaigns, we also try to demonstrate the importance of active volunteering and the power that small actions can have in the fight against pollution. Thus, we try to encourage people to become active agents of change for a better planet. 

Using our social networks we try to demonstrate more sustainable habits and solutions in our daily lives in order to motivate people to integrate circular economy concepts into their lives, such as reusing, refusing, repairing, or giving new purpose to things they already have.

António & Vivi - Founders of Projeto Gea

António has a degree in Biology and dedicates much of his time to protecting the environment and wildlife through volunteer movements like the Projeto Gea or professionally. He spends much of his time outdoors with his backpack, looking up in the sky for birds or on the ground

for trash to pick up.

Vivi believes there is no limit to learning new things, from studying Social Policy to learning how to make & serve great coffee to building websites and managing clean-up campaigns in Greece and Portugal. She is a proud volunteer because volunteers, she says, are rare and priceless.
