Posidonia Festival Print E-mail

Why a "Posidonia" Festival?

Because we are aware of the importance of defending the Posidonia oceanica as a key element to maintaining the equilibrium of the mediterranean coastal and sea ecosystems.

Because the plant contributes enormously to the spectacular beauty of the sea in Formentera .

Because we believe in the union of Culture, Education, and Environment Preservation as a means of making a transition towards a sustainable planet.

Because of all this, the Posidonia plant stands for the spirit and aims of the Festival .

Why Formentera? 

Because Formentera is an ecologic paradise with an extraordinary environmental richness, both at in the sea and inland.

Because Formentera loves its environment and its natural surroundings and has implemented specific plans of action for ecology, culture and a more sustainable development

Because Formentera is a unique scenario for cultural events, where unforgettable experiences can be lived. 

Because between Ibiza and Formentera there is an 8 km-long and 100,000-years-old individual of Posidonia oceanica which is thought to be the oldest and largest living being in the world.

Because Formentera is Formentera.
