Our projects

Construction of an accessible electric boat

This project was developed by one of the resort’s staff and will allow people with functional diversity and/or physical disabilities to enjoy aquatic activities, marine therapies or to simply get out on the water and see the wonders of nature and the seabed in a fully sustainable boat. The goal is to make this leisure activity more environmentally friendly and to promote the values of sustainability and social inclusion.

Collaboration agreement between the Plaza Terra Viva Foundation and the Tramuntana Organisation for Social Inclusion

The Plaza Terra Viva Foundation and the Tramuntana Organisation have decided to join forces to promote social inclusion and the employability of people at risk of social exclusion in the Costa Brava area.
In this way, the Plaza Terra Viva Foundation will act as a link between the Talaia Plaza EcoResort and the Tramuntana Organisation for the recruitment of members of the aforementioned organisation in its various work integration programmes.Tramuntana, for its part, will facilitate the selection and contracting processes, as well as ensuring that the people hired by the EcoResort receive adequate prior training.
Tramuntana will also make its premises available to members of the Plaza Terra Viva Foundation to carry out their activities. This approach will promote the exchange of experiences and the coexistence and social integration of people from different backgrounds and environments.
The collaboration between the two organisations will also include the participation of guests of Talaia Plaza EcoResort in events organised by Tramuntana, such as cultural activities, workshops and training activities, which will allow EcoResort guests to experience other realities and environments, raising their awareness of diversity and social inclusion.
In short, both organisations have committed themselves to working together to promote the social inclusion and employability of people at risk of social exclusion, through a process of mutual collaboration aimed at improving the living conditions and well-being of the most vulnerable people on the Costa Brava.

Indigenous flora reforestation project at Talaia Plaza EcoResort

The Plaza Terra Viva Foundation aims to conserve and improve the flora and fauna of the Sa Riera area (Begur). This region of the Costa Brava is known for its natural wealth, with a wide variety of plants and animals native to the Mediterranean.
The fauna of the area includes species such as the hedgehog, the badger, the fox and various birds such as the falcon and the kestrel. Aquatic species such as sea bass and grouper also inhabit the area. The flora of the region comprises a wide variety of species such as pine, holm oak, strawberry and juniper.
With the aim of preserving and improving this rich flora and fauna, the Plaza Terra Viva Foundation has undertaken a series of activities and projects to ensure that the natural environment of Sa Riera remains intact and can be enjoyed by all.
Firstly, a reforestation project is being developed, which consists of repopulating areas of the Talaia Plaza EcoResort with native species.This will involve planting and maintaining trees and plants over a period of several years.
In addition, events and activities will be organised to raise funds for this project, in which both EcoResort guests and local residents can take part. Hotel guests will also be able to donate a percentage of the cost of their stay to this initiative.
Another activity that will be carried out is the monitoring and study of the local wildlife and plant species of the Begur area.This will allow us to better understand the current situation and take more specific measures to preserve and improve it.
In short, the Plaza Terra Viva Foundation is working to conserve and improve the flora and fauna in the Sa Riera area, starting with the reforestation project, in which both the local community and the guests of the EcoResort can participate.
