Ecotourism development in remoted areasactive 2 weeks, 5 days ago
Remote rural areas across Europe are facing employment shortages and declining populations. Tourism could help to address this problem, attracting travellers to the regions and helping to create businesses and jobs. However, intensified tourism would change the areas themselves, so to preserve typical rural areas, it is necessary to promote only sustainable tourism, following the approach of eco-tourism. During the project, methodological tools will be developed and ecotourism trainings for local residents will be carried out, a certification system for ecotourism service providers will be created, ecotourism events and presentations of good examples will be organized.
