Instituto Ilhabela Sustentável

The Ilhabela Sustentável Institute (IIS in Portuguese) works to transform the municipal government of Ilhabela into an able, participatory, and transparent government. IIS holds educational citizenship campaigns and works with sanitation agencies to ensure the quality of local beaches and preserve sustainable tourism activities, an important source of income for the residents of the island.
IIS focuses on citizen training to build a vibrant civil society. As an example, they have generated civic citizen empowerment tools to discuss the impact of the construction of the San Sebastian port.
Additionally, IIS has many projects focused on education, social, civic engagement, technology, and citizenship.
