What is the meaning of Flockeo?
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.
“FLOCK is an English term. When applied to birds, it means gathering to migrate. Like birds, sustainable tourism stakeholders gather on the Flockeo site to defend an ecofriendly journey.
“EO are the initials of Earth Observation. The Flockeo site uses satellite data to help travelers betterunderstand the world and make sustainable choices.
Why sustainable tourism matters ?
From the first initial idea to setting foot on foreign land, traveling enriches our lives in unparalleled ways. Meeting new people, experiencing the world, and taking in different cultures, is part of the adventure that draws us in. But, however much we love traveling, we have to acknowledge the negative impacts of tourism. Air pollution, congestion, and exploitation of local communities are just some of the side negative effects of traveling.
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.
