Rocciaviva is a group of young people based in southern Italy.

It’s common for local young people to leave the area in search of other opportunities, but Rocciaviva’s founders made the decision to return home and create regenerative opportunities in their local community, sharing skills and knowledge they have learnt while away.

Rocciaviva’s mission is to cultivate well-being, environmental and social regeneration by sowing change, through:

  • Construction of a community and a network on the territory
  • Reforestation of degraded areas
  • Expanding ecosystem restoration to different lands in the south of Italy
  • Spreading permacultural values (sustainable way of living)
  • Creation of educational and cultural opportunities for the local community and visitors.

Rocciaviva has already planted 12,000 plants, restored a lake as a water retention system and ran educational and community events such as seminars on permaculture, and has made a strong positive connection with the community it works in.
