The Municipality of Capraia Isola for 10 years it has entered into an agreement with the Tuscan Archipelago National Park and Outdoor Schools in the Network for the implementation of educational campuses, also included in the school-work alternation, which combine the learning aspects of the themes of biodiversity conservation with practical experiences and manuals related to the protection and maintenance of the territory. This is the Outdoor Schools on the Net project. The network of schools "Oudoor in Rete" schools, whose lead institution is the Liceo "Duca degli Abruzzi" in Treviso, has organized two environmental education initiatives for high school students in the territory of the Park. The “An island for schools” project was activated for two class-groups that carried out recovery activities of ancient paths and carried out thematic workshops on the Island of Capraia.
Furthermore, Capraia, together with the Italian islands of Tavolara, Asinara and Palmaria, was a beneficiary of the ISOle Sostenibili (ISOS) community project (Réseau d'îles pour le développement) which had the aim of identifying innovative and sustainable solutions to address common critical issues, such as managing population flows in the tourist season, water and energy supply, waste disposal, mobility and connections with other islands or the mainland. The project involved, in addition to the three Italian islands, also the small French islands located in the Tyrrhenian area of the Mediterranean such as the Island of Lérins (AM), the islands of Hyères (VAR) and the Lavezzi islands (CORSICA). The project was funded under the Interreg program.
In Capraia, iThe Tuscan Archipelago National Park has created a public lighting system powered by photovoltaic panels: the works involved an area of the inhabited center with the installation of devices, appropriately directed to minimize the impacts on seabirds and other nocturnal animals, and equipped with presence sensors to limit consumption.
As part of the same project, bags have been made available for resident citizens and boaters stationed in the port of the island to place multi-material and paper waste; a simple gesture that however improves the separate collection.
