What good practices should be encouraged to guarantee eco-sustainability and reduce the environmental impact of tourist services? The Echotourism project goes on!

From 28 to 30 September 2020, the first international training of the Echotourism project took place, intended to train partners from Italy, France, Belgium, Greece and Croatia on how to sensitize and guide professionals in the tourism sector in offering eco-sustainable services.

The training, carried out online, concerned the definition of common tools to achieve the different objectives that the project sets itself. Among these, the creation of an online course for entrepreneurs in the tourism sector who adopt more eco-sustainable strategies and behaviours. Several strategic management models have been considered to make the future online course interesting and practical for professionals. Detailed guides will also be created containing actions and suggestions to reduce the daily consumption of both professional and tourists in the tourism sector.

The project, therefore, aims to help professionals and tourism operators to adopt eco-sustainable behaviours, as well as to offer a new range of services to tourists in compliance with environmental criteria and the socio-economic needs of local people.

About the project

ECHO-Tourism is cofunded by Erasmus+: Key Action 2, Strategic partnerships Adult Education.
