Summary of the project

The DACulatra project – Participatory Diagnosis and Action Plan for Ecological Sustainability on Culatra Island forms part of a larger initiative, “CULATRA2030 – Sustainable Energy Community “, which aims generally for the development of a pilot community in renewable energy on the island of Culatra. The pilot community should take root in the full interaction and dialogue between the local community, academic research, the local authorities and the business sector. DACulatra is then the starting point for the participatory definition of a set of measures leading the island and its communities in the implementation of an ambitious clean energy transition agenda. Strategic and temporal synchrony with the Energy Transition Agenda approved by the EU, and the fact that the ‘Agenda’ first steps should be the empowerment and involvement of the community (community building), reinforces at all the impact of the project.


  • 150 key actors of the island of Culatra (3 nucleous)
  • Indirect: 950 inhabitants (12% of the population)

Overall achievements

Inserted within a larger initiative, called Culatra 2030 – Sustainable Energy Community, whose goal is to promote and adopt Ecological and sustainable practices in the island’s communities. The special status of pilot island constitutes a huge challenge to the island and its communities. A participatory community diagnostic procedure was performed which involved the communities throughout the process; detected problems, obstacles, potentialities and opportunities for action and transition on the island; promoted the discussion and prepared a set of action plans that constitute solutions to the problems and needs detected. The activities were carried out with the full participation of the communities of the island. The project reached 393 people.
