A Selection of our Recent Stories:
Yannis Vardakastanis: "There is no need for more hotels (in Zakynthos) ....There are too many tourists, turtle chasing activities, excessive light pollution, human waste and rubbish, all impacting greatly on our fragile eco-system"
Martha Honey: "I see Ecotourism, whose origins trace back to the environmental movement in the 1970s, as today a far wider and deeper concept - encompassing more countries and having more dimensions than in the past"
Sofield: As with all tourism planning for development in China, much of it
is top-down and driven by government as the key stakeholder. Increasingly,
however, authorities accept and invite additional stakeholders to
participate in the formulation of planning, and slowly community based
tourism among the Minorities is reaching out to those most directly
affected, and their views and proposals taken into account.
VARGHESE: "The natural environment and the multicultural social
environment coupled with a progressive political environment and an
enterprising people are responsible for making Kerala a unique destination"
SAMAUI: "Decision makers are not very aware about ecotourism issues, most think
only about attracting more economic development"
Rose: "If we think tradition should be offered to us for free, we are part of
the serious problem. The people we meet during our travels are not obligated to
treat us to a single peanut, let alone a feast free of charge."
Nikki Rose: "If we think tradition should be offered to us for free, we are part of the serious problem. The people we meet during our travels are not obligated to treat us to a single peanut, let alone a feast free of charge."
