We have created Flockeo to federate a global community around sustainable tourism. We aim at connecting travelers and professionals in an inclusive eco-system based on the values of sustainability, protection of the environment, sharing experiences with the local communities and extending the benefits of tourism to the larger local regions.
The protection of the environment are an incredible opportunity for every destination to reinvent its tourism policy and to promote new regions. This is a great space to counter mass tourism and to advocate sustainable development in newly developed areas.
Through our map, we provide the Flockeo indicator to the community with an independent, transparent view of the environmental footprint of tourism on a destination.
A community dedicated to sustainable tourism has to honor three pillars :
act for the preservation of the environment, foster local economies and respect local communities and their cultures.
The Sustainable Tourism Charter
Sorting and Waste Reduction
Limit the use of plastic
Saving water and energy
Promote the use of soft mode of transport
Inform about lifestyle, heritage, culture of the destination
Help to learn the local language
Promote activities that reach out to people
Make local actors work
Promote short circuits
