Green and sustainable
The topic of sustainable tourism is Fijet Mission. We hope that one day sustainable tourism will no longer be ideal, but rather be the normal mode of living and operating. Each travel journalist and writer drawn to sustainable tourism for different reasons: to protect the earth and preserve it for future generations, to give media support to sustainable local economies.No matter what the reason, more and more people are traveling each day and the impact of tourism is growing. Can sustainable practices enhance the visitor experience? Yes, sustainable practices can do it. If a sustainable destination or product is not offering a better product, or travel experience, what is the point? That is why our focus must be on the authentic offer and the context of the destination, because the motive of arrival is not the bed, but the destination itself.UNWTO Theme “Green Investments” was the reason to celebrate World Tourism Day together with County Tourist Office Zagreb.
