Why only Green Sustainability?
Nowadays, we are more aware of environment itself and environmental protection as the primary importance of Sustainable Development, but I must ask You: Is it really enough just to protect only our natural resources? From the Sustainable Rural Development point of view, it is not enough, there is more that can be done.
According to the definition for Sustainable Development, there is not just natural resources that should be preserved. Cultural and Social resources have to be preserved too.
Natural resources are important, but the goal of the Rural Travel Creator® is to protect traditional heritage and we will continue to promote it because the feeling of our identity and belonging to the country is not the question of our genetics, but the question of our culture, something that we except and learn it.
That is why we need to respect cultural and social authenticity of our citizens in the rural area and preserve their cultural, tradition and architectural values. Still “Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations”.
Having all above in mind, Rural Travel Creator® is focusing on giving the opportunity to Socially Responsible Tourists to participate in the festivals and events, to explore villages, UNESCO World heritage sites as well as templates, monasteries, historical sites and traditional rural architecture.
So that is why You should get involved in rural tourism and contribute to Sustainable Rural Development by focusing on preserving not only natural resources but social and cultural resources also.
First, by focusing on diversified offer for socially responsible tourists who are looking for the unique experience you can experience life in the countryside.
Second, by exploring villages socially responsible tourists can meet locals and discover their way of living, their tradition and their heritage but the most important fact is that you can by visiting their villages contribute to sustainable rural development.
