We are PIRATES for PLANET – in short P4P – a sustainable sailing collective for conscious and inspiring rebels (like you) who want to be a change in this f*#@cked up world!
We are an Italian-based environmental association (ETS), founded in 2021 by two passionate sailors that wanted to use the power of sailing to inspire positive change in the world.
We, Pirates for Planet, are dedicated to raising awareness of the major threats our planet is facing. We believe we urgently need lifestyle changes and activism to protect our endangered natural world. That’s why we organize Sustainable Sailing Expeditions, as a great learning experiment to share with others how we can do things differently.
to reconnect to the natural world
to protect the planet and all of its species
The Planet desperately needs more Pirates!
We’re witnessing turbulent times. Our natural world is seriously endangered, our societies are suffering under unjust power structures and inequality, and on top of that, are we sensing a serious lack of meaning and direction in our lives.
This is exactly what a 21st-century Pirate for Planet should rebel against.
Our relationship with nature, with others, and with ourselves must change immediately if we want a sustainable future for all of us. Fortunately, there has been a massive paradigm shift taking place. Emerging crises have expanded our awareness on so many levels: politically, environmentally, and psychologically. Many of us realize that our lifestyles and societies are destroying our planet, our fellow species, and also our own sense of purpose and meaning in life.
Never before have so many people awakened to strive for a radical and sustainable change worldwide. That’s why we founded Pirates for Planet, to join this massive wave of collective change!
Our Pirates for Planet Manifesto
What change do we propose? What do we stand for?
What do we envision when speaking of sustainable lifestyle changes?
We have turned to low-impact travel with respect for oceans and animals.
We abstain from excessive consumerism, instead, we prefer to make/build/grow/invent it ourselves.
We are dedicated to working together for a lasting collective impact.
We find meaning in living an adventurous, fulfilling life while protecting our planet.
Why are we doing this?
We, as Pirates for Planet, truly believe we need more REAL-LIFE experiences in order to raise awareness and bring about change in our collective mindset.
We know that sailing is a life-changing experience that has the unique power to reconnect us to nature and ourselves.
By spending time out there at sea, in close relation to the natural elements and away from our comfort zone on land, we somehow change inside. We are not the masters of nature anymore, nature is our master. The sea, the wind, and the weather dictate what you should do, not the other way around.
Sailing changes your perspective on the world and humbles you. Sailing reminds you to show enormous respect to our wonderful nature. We believe that sailing can trigger the needed commitment to start caring for and protecting our planet.
And that’s exactly what our world needs: more inspired and dedicated change-makers, activists, rebels, anti-heroes, in short, a movement of
PIRATES for PLANET
that act straight from the heart. Because honestly, it’s up to us to actually make a change!
