Publication "Uniting youth for ecotourism"

YEE is happy to share our new publication "Uniting youth for ecotourism". The publication was created by YEE team as a follow-up of the international training course of the same name. The training course was organised by YEE in November 2017 with the aim of exploring youth involvement and participation in ecotourism activities. We wanted to learn more about what ecotourism is and how young people can get involved with their local communities through organising ecotourism events and activities.

This publication was created to continue our exploration of ecotourism and also to reach more young people who are interested in the topic. In this booklet you can find out more about ecotourism: what it is, how it came to be and what its current data is. You can also find out more about the criteria and labels which are used in Europe for ecotourism business and projects. Another important aspect of any ecotourism activity is involvement of local communities - read more about community-based ecotourism. The second part of the booklet is filled with practical information and tips aimed to help young people who would like to start their own ecotourism activity. There are chapters on how to develop an idea, prepare a business plan, some tips for fundraising and promotion.
