Sustainable Tourism

Sustainable tourism concerns the challenges which the goal of sustainable development poses for tourism. It particularly includes the issue of how energy consumption and GHG gas emissions associated with the journey itself can be reduced. Geotourism includes the type of tourism development which takes the environment into consideration, presents locally distinctive features and provides greatest possible value creation for local communities.
