  • "These types of projects also have great potential for advancing in the field of marine environmental education, which is very much in line with the work carried out by our department."

    Sebastià Sansó
    Director of Waste and Environmental Education | Council of the Environment and Territory

  • "Having reached a dangerous point of natural degradation on our islands, we need more projects like this one to undo the damage done to our ecosystem and prove that it is still possible to build a sustainable future."

    Joe de Holles
    President | Tramuntana XXI

  • "MedGardens has all the elements required to build a solid community of focused stakeholders that share the same goal, a clean and healthy sea in their area. Reality is the Mediterranean Sea is a melting pot of thousands of local areas, a patchwork of potential sites for the project."

    Brad Robertson
    President & Co-founder | Save The Med

  • "The MedGardens project puts the focus on community engagement and proactive interventions to improve the state of our coastal habitats. In addition, it provides a new angle throughout which to advance marine conservation efforts in the Balearics. For these reasons we are very excited to be involved in MedGardens providing all our expertise, know-how and support."

    Aniol Esteban
    Director | Marilles Foundation

  • "I believe The MedGardens project has the potential to greatly benefit the communities in which it operates fits, in particular by including the active participation of its citizens. The volunteer component is sure to be an effective educational tool that will strengthen their commitment and contribute to a multiplying effect for future generations"

    Manolo Arango
    Founder | FUNDEA

  • "The restoration initiatives proposed in MedGardens present an excellent opportunity to test and design approaches to scale-up restoration actions in an effective manner through the participation of key stakeholders."

  • "Through my experience, I have learnt that artists are particularly keen and unique observers, capable of shaking underlying readings within the observer’s conscience. Artists can re-search, re-view and re-create from genuine perspectives and in this sense MedGardens offers an extraordinary setting, fostering new and creative visions of our surrounding marine landscapes."

    Jackie Herbst
    Art Commissioner | CCA

  • "In addition to the restoration of the marine environment, the inclusion of art in the project as a way to set in value nature and marine biodiversity, we find it very interesting as the artistic interventions in marine-terrestrial territory have proven to be a backbone between society and nature conservation, showing a high potential for community, relational and reputational capitalization."

    Ana Riera
    Executive Director | Mallorca Preservation Foundation

  • "Preserving healthy ecosystems is the best strategy for conservation, but there are other approaches such as restoration projects that can also be very valuable and can bring new knowledge in relation to the biology of marine a seagrasses."
