From 21 to 30 April 2022, we organised an event involving 25 young people from Albania, Italy, Greece, Romania, and France. These young people, aged 18 to 25, met over the course of 10 days to discuss the theme of Sustainable Tourism. These meetings were hosted by Charente Maritime youth hostels (in Rochefort and La Rochelle). These organisations work daily in favour of Sustainable Tourism (Ethics, Ecology, Social, and Solidarity themes).

 

Over the course of this meeting, these young people were able to develop and exchange knowledge and skills in terms of Sustainable Tourism; to present initiatives from their own regions aiming to preserve coastal areas; to (re)discover European politics pushing to develop Sustainable Tourism; and to meet professionals fighting for tangible initiatives in terms of coastal protection. Participants also had the opportunity to create a “Responsible Tourism Checklist”, which will be shared with as many people as possible in the aim of making simple actions accessible for all.
