The Alternative Atlas of Lesvos: an island for the world

-with ECF

The Alternative Atlas of Lesvos is a research project that proposes to discover and communicate the many layers that make Lesvos special: it's rich cultural history, natural assets and a compassionate people, as demonstrated by the recent nomination of local actors for the Nobel Peace Prize.

This research is an attempt to catalogue these layers to create an alternative atlas that may be used to promote the island, generate new connections and catalyse new opportunities both locally and internationally in order to accelerate positive change. We seek to understand resident perspectives. Using a variety of research activities, events and interviews, we aim to gather information about the residents’ skills and interests, favourite spaces, local stories, and aspirations for the island. In essence, we are creating a community led master plan, an atlas of assets, initiatives, convenors and connectors, stories and hopes.
