Sustainability is about supporting people too 

Boom Karuna Project

The Boom Karuna Project was born in 2014 with the intention of sharing a part of Boom’s revenues with the local Idanha-a-Nova community and beyond.

In the aftermath of Boom 2018, we distributed a total €40,000 to various projects. Learn more about one of our most beloved projects on the Boom Karuna Project page.

Part of our mission entails funding social initiatives in the region - here are just some examples of how we do this:


  • Between October 2017 and October 2018, the Boom Team comprised 29 different nationalities
  • 84 per cent of people working for Boom were from the local area
