6360Editors sustainable tourism must reads: ROAD TO GREENWASH PAVED WITH GOOD INTENTIONS
- Feb 12, 2014Hello
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:
