Projects & Partners
We focus on meaningful partnerships with organizations and projects that share similar values and create positive impacts for the community and/or environment within our destination. We aim at maximization of value through these collaborations and are committed to inspiring a change within the industry and our destination towards achieving the UN’s sustainable development goals.
Long-term our goal is to establish LifeXperiences as a role model and as a powerful collective of partners to inspire governmental organizations to support our aim of sustainable development within our destination.
In 2017, Cleanwave.org – a non-profit initiative – was founded out of LifeXperiences‘ need in providing alternative solutions to single-use plastic water bottle consumption.
Cleanwave has set up a network of public water fountains, where visitors and residents can refill their sustainable water bottles for free. Cleanwave provides plastic free water solutions at public and private events.
Cleanwave.org has also launched a successful school program, educating children on the harmful impact of single use plastic on the environment. In 2018, Cleanwave produced an award-winning documentary film ‘Out of Plastic’ which has been screened throughout the Balearic Islands and internationally. In cooperation with Cleanwave we are working on developing the project that long-term allows for compensation of our CO2 emissions, both internal and from our events & activities.

MedGardens are small plots of shallow coastal seabed where underwater forests are transplanted, reinforced and preserved. They become social and scientific labs where citizens and scientists concur. When underwater forests are transplanted, reinforced and preserved, they create new habitats where other animal and plant species can thrive, contributing to the increase of biodiversity and the ecosystem’s resilience & amplifying the ecosystem services to society.
The intention is for this project to serve as our blue carbon trader in the long run, offering the possibility to compensate for our company’s carbon footprint as well as for the emissions of those activities that are already mandatory to compensate for due to their negative impact on our destinations
Find out more about the project and how you can participate during your event by including MedExpeditions into your itinerary.

Future of Tourism
The Future of Tourism Coalition is a collaborative effort to chart a new, more sustainable direction for tourism and shift the status quo. The Coalition is pursuing a shared global mission: to place destination needs at the center of tourism’s new future.
The Coalition has collaboratively developed and launched a set of Guiding Principles that outline a bold vision for tourism's path forward. The 13 principles provide a clear moral and business imperative for building a healthier tourism industry, while protecting the places and people on which it depends. We are a signatory of the Future of Tourism Guiding Principles.

Global Tourism Plastics Initiative
We are proud to be a signatory of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative led by the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation
As a signatory of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative, we endorse the common vision to address the root causes of plastic pollution.
We commit to eliminate the plastic items we don’t need; innovate so all plastics we do need are designed to be safely reused, recycled, or composted; and circulate everything we use to keep it in the economy and out of the environment.
