      Hello Green travellers

      It's been an interesting week - the Euro elections seem to indicate that
      more communications are necessary - what better way to start than to travel
      around it! Interestingly Italy went the other way (protesting against the
      protest vote?) and that means good things for Italian tourism - 2015 may
      well be a key year with the Expo set to bring an extra 20 million tourists.
      Will they see the sustainability message - "Feeding the planet - energy for
      life"? We hope so.

      The Ashden awards show the way to sustainability - glitz, glamour, showbiz,
      academia, top thoughtful world businesses. Plus great food and drink, very
      open, friendly and hospitable people and an incredibly committed, noisy and
      very upmarket audience! Real sustainable successes to applaud and cheer.
      This package really makes sustainability a glamorous aspiration - not a
      second best make-do and mend issue.

      Applause for this dynamic organisation and event. The energy saved was
      clearly being used by all present to great effect! http://bit.ly/1pvSatl

      I heartily recommend our website http://www.totemtourism.com interviews,
      stories, offers - worthwhile or they wouldn't be there!
