Seeking the cooperation of the tourism industry to promote the values of the project marks a new round of meetings begun in Cadiz

On Friday, those in charge of Life Conhabit Andalusia started a round of meetings in Barbate (Cadiz) with business people from the tourist sector who carried out their activity in Natura 2000 Network spaces benefitting from the project and that, in the case of the province of Cadiz, are Estrecho, La Breña y Marismas del Barbate, Pinar de Roche and Punta de Trafalgar.

In the middle of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, declared by the United Nations, it is essential to find tourist experience that respect the environment and minimise the impact that is made on the environment. It is also essential that the tourist sector is involved in creating social awareness about the importance of practising responsible tourism.

The great biodiversity of the Andalusian coast makes it a tourist attraction more and more in demand. It is therefore crucial to ease the negative effects of aggressive tourism and find sustainable tourist experiences.

It should be pointed out that, in the framework of these sectoral meetings, the technical team at Life Conhabit Andalusia has already held a first round of talks with the Andalusian councils that benefit from the project.
