The ethic étapes network, a voluntary union of International Residence Centres, is a non-profit association whose objective is to provide a quality welcome for young people of all nationalities. Thanks to an ethical and sustainable vision, the ethic étapes centres are committed to act to promote virtuous and respectful tourism. The ethic étapes are actors involved in their territories and aim to keep them alive all year round. They develop a different kind of tourism in France, accessible to all, according to the historical values of social and solidarity tourism. These commitments can be seen in two key figures: 14 éthic étapes centres have the ecolabel, and 22 have the Tourisme & Handicap label. A strong and solid positioning for more than 40 years!
