      Hello

      So this week a couple of great examples of classic green catch phrases...
      "Small is Beautiful" with UK B&Bs... "Think global, act local" the VISTAS!
      Awards... "Cooperation not Competition" the European green tie up. Some
      highly stimulating discussions in sight at the RT networking in Berlin and
      at the Sustainable Tourism masterclass in the UK. Not forgetting the
      fact-filled, insight-loaded, iconoclastic, new Sustainable Tourism Report
      AND a new destination marketing method.

      And some worrying developments in Voluntourism and at Sochi. The road to
      GREENWASH is certainly paved with good intentions:
