Visitors have discovered how our association for the development of a different tourism has contributed for almost ten years to the development of a sustainable, responsible, sustainable Romanian tourism, in a single word: green! We had the opportunity to present our green vision with other participating organizations that take on us as well as a responsible commitment to society and the environment.
We also tested (as Nature allowed us) the public’s willingness to join our initiatives. Not just as a simple spectator, but an active part of this experience, I gave the slippers (green) in the gift for the green tourism lovers and I opened the craving for the excursion from the beginning of the holiday.
On the second day it can be said that the event continued at the Romanian Peasant Club due to unfavorable weather consequence of Climate Changing. In meeting our association has higthliting the importance of supporting the social and cultural ecological reconversion of classic tourism to achieve all those green values that are targeted by global goals events in the context of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and Sustainable Development Objectives (SDG) in this 2017 International Year of Turism for Sustainable development.
