But what is sustainable development? It is meeting the needs of today’s society without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It has three pillars: social, economic and environmental. Our projects strive to take all three aspects into account by integrating awareness-raising and networking workshops. Working with local communities, and showing them that the process is beneficial, is the guarantee of a sustainable commitment to the protection of ecosystems.
Environmental protection is a particularly broad field. It covers all ecosystems, both terrestrial and marine, and there are many ways to protect them. Freepackers’ assignments range from the renovation of infrastructures with a more ecological objective to land development, depollution, reforestation, etc. The environment constitutes a global commitment, and participants come from all over the world to join these projects! It is a time to interact and share with a team united around the same values.Freepackers offers projects that combine cultural immersion, ecotourism, discovering a new country, and a commitment to environmental protection. Through these missions, participants work towards preserving local ecosystems! Join a multicultural team and contribute to sustainable development.
Some concrete examples of environmental projects with Freepackers include marine conservation, protection and study of marine mammals and birds, beach cleaning, coral restoration, environmental conservation, restoration of natural habitats, pollution control, waste treatment, farm experiences, discovering new agricultural methods in organic farms, permaculture techniques, eco-centers, etc.
All of these ecotourism missions are shared with a multicultural team and also provide access to new cultures through collaboration with local communities. For those who are eager for immersive experiences in nature, environmental expeditions are also possible, such as in the heart of the rainforest in Costa Rica!
Specifically, we offer you missions that have a lasting impact on ecosystems across all continents. Each project is verified beforehand to ensure the coherence of the values we transmit and defend, and to allow you to have the richest possible experience. Whether you want to go to Europe, America, Asia, Africa or Oceania, we accompany you throughout the duration of your mission as part of ecotourism!
