Welcome to the place where everything started



Α new model for protection, preservation & regeneration.

Welcome to the new generation Environmental non- profit Institute “Laguna Coast Foundation”, based in the Laguna area of Naxos island, Greece. 

The Laguna Coast Organization is a hub for Research, Innovation and Sustainable Entrepreneurship which will meet the challenges and needs of the 21st century. Through the Digital Transformation, the country will turn to a new model of lifestyle based on the tripartite “Environmental-Economic-Social Development” which in turn will allow us to build a new, strong, contemporary country.

The Laguna Coast Masterplan aims to develop a new vision for the future of the environmental awareness and action both in Greece and internationally.

Changing the future of tourism and culture

Based on an extremely old land, Laguna Coast Foundation will be a new paradigm for measurably regenerative tourism: the raw, untouched landscapes and spectacular coastal waters. At the same time, it will promote outdoor works of art of important artists at the unique Manto isle, its Artsphere.


Laguna Coast Masterplan: One of the most sustainable projects worldwide comes to life in Naxos island.

Achieving our net-zero goal will require a transformation of the Laguna Coast, leading both to reduced carbon emissions as well as to optimisation of the natural environment. Our research and conversations with academics are key to our effort to deepen our understanding of the challenges and our mission to help navigate the way ahead together.

Land and sea will be set aside for conservation

Land and sea will be set aside for conservation. Our regreening and rewilding strategy will be advantageous to both humanity and nature. Improved livability for humans will be standard. 

Laguna Coast Foundation will act as a planetary regeneration, accelerator

Native plants and animals will coexist peacefully with the land and the sea, unaffected by human habitation or desertification. In order to restore our climate, rescue species, and replenish natural resources, we must all become stewards of the future. Laguna Coast Foundation will act as a planetary regeneration, accelerator, it will be used as the milestone for humanity regeneration process.

“Laguna Coast Foundation” has achieved its first huge success in environmental protection for which we are really proud. We reached an agreement in corporation with HEDNO S.A. ( Hellenic Distribution Network Operator S.A.)  for the undergrounding of the medium voltage pylons in the beautiful area of Laguna Coast in Naxos Island, which will take place in the second half of 2023. HEDNO tasks include the operation, maintenance, and development of the power distribution network in Greece, as well as the assurance of a transparent and impartial access of consumers and of all network users in general. Its purpose is to provide reliable power supply to customers, quality of electricity voltage and constant improvement of quality in services. 
The undergrounding will contribute to the protection of flamingos and rare birds of Laguna, and it will assist in their further reproduction. Moreover, the rare plants and unique herbs of this historical area will be also protected. 

Naxos: The first ever smart island in Greece

Taking into consideration that the Greek Government in cooperation with AMAZON  web services aspire to create the first “smart” island hub on Naxos with a bundle of seventeen different actions all related to modern digital technology, as well as the history and ecological data of Stelida hill we present Laguna Coast as a new world symbol of rebirth and regeneration. 
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is leading a pilot project to turn the Greek island of Naxos in the Aegean Sea into a smart island. The smart island aspires to offer a better quality of life to its residents, opportunities for local businesses, and an attractive destination for tourists and digital nomads from around the world.
