Alternative Tourisms

 

 

The meaning of Sustainable Tourism is very close to the concept of Responsible Tourism. However, the word « sustainability » is often overused and not fully understood.

This is the reason why the term « Responsible tourism » has been sometimes replaced by the industries to facilitate the comprehension of the global sustainable concept. Any responsible way of traveling, acting or thinking can be considered as « responsible tourism ».

 

Ecotourism and Green Tourism are both part of sustainable tourism but they only include the environmental aspect.

 

On the other hand, Rural Tourism can be a variation of ecotourism, but it only focuses on actively doing tourism in rural landscapes.

 

Fair Trade Tourism runs a membership programme for those businesses that are keen to embark on the path towards best-practice sustainability projects.

 

Solidarity Tourism helps hosting population by building locals projects in collaboration with NGOs and tour-operators.

 

 

Voluntourism or Eco-voluntourism is a form of travel where volunteers work on projects for the local communities.

 

Outdoor Tourism is focused on sport and outdoor activities.
