This volunteer program gives you the opportunity to discover the wonders of the Portuguese coastline and work on the protection of the marine ecosystem of the Atlantic Ocean. 

In collaboration with a diving school which has a special emphasis on the local environmental protection, you can:

  • Take internationally recognized Diving certifications; 
  • Explore the underwater world of the Portuguese coastline; 
  • Learn about the marine ecosystem and how to protect it;
  • Collect trash from the bottom of the Ocean to recycle it;
  • Work with the local community - educate them about environmental issues, conservation, and protection of biodiversity and marine resources.

You will always be supervised by an experienced dive instructor and will receive comprehensive training on the marine conservation subject. 

Any person can participate, from beginners (starting with the Open Water Dive Certification) or more experienced divers, as the program is adapted to your diving experience. Observe fish of all colors, touch weird seaweeds, explore caves, discover boat wrecks and much more. 

You will discover a Portuguese treasure unknown to many and loved by those who are brave enough to take this challenge.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

The schedule will depend on the diving experience of the volunteer. We can send you the table with the different diving tracks!

Accomodatie

Impact House has the capacity to accommodate up to 44 conscious travelers who want to visit Lisbon in a different way. With both dormitories and private rooms, any traveler can choose to have a more responsible stay in Portugal.

Located in the Restelo neighborhood, Impact House is just 20 minutes away from the Tejo river, and 30min by bus from the city center. You can easily visit some historical and emblematic places of Lisbon, the stunning Torre de Belém and its garden, Cultural Center (CCB) with amazing art, expositions and concerts, Mosteiro Dos Jerónimos, as well as local shops, traditional restaurants, supermarkets, ATMs and most utilities you will need very close. The Hostel is surrounded by several connecting options to the city center, such as buses (30 minutes away from the center), and the Belém train station that leads you to Lisbon or Cascais (25 walking distance from the hostel). The airport is just 13 km away.

But what is really unique about us is our sustainability concept.

We developed innovative projects based on circular economy and in partnership with local non-profit partners. These projects are integrated into the very basis of the way the hostel works. Some examples are the compensation of 100% of its CO2 emissions; the upcycling and wooden waste usage as furniture of the room; the social and sustainable shop; the ecologic and biodegradable cleaning projects; the art gallery for disabled and changemaker artists; the vegetables garden; the buying in bulk policy or the almost closed food and waste cycles.

And you can also be part of it! Donate something, volunteer your time, learn new skills on our zero waste workshops, compensate your flight emissions, bike to transform plastic into new products among many other opportunities!

Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Portugal dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Portugal.
