5 tips for sustainable travel

Tourism generates 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

We are supporting greener tourism with our Agora project to promoting supporting local ecosystems by interconnecting community partners, local producers, and tourism agents and the co-designing of regenerative tourism experiences based on authenticity, originality, and sustainability.

But as individuals, we can all make conscious choices to travel more sustainably.

#EUClimatePact ambassadors Anna Staszewska from Poland and Jesus Iglesias from Spain share their tips on how to be a greener tourist:

💡Opt for accommodation that uses sustainable practices.
🚄Travel by bus, train or choose an airline that is reducing their carbon footprint.
🍏Buy local produce and souvenirs. Listen, observe and respect local ways of life.
💚Think green: Use less water, limit air conditioning, avoid crowds, use local guides, walk or
cycle.
♻️ Choose ecotourism: It helps the economy by supporting small local businesses and contributes to conservation efforts of natural ecosystems.

“If 1,000 people take one small step, things will be better”, says Anna.
