Our network, the European Alliance for Responsible Tourism and Hospitality (EARTH) and the Mediterranean network AREMDT (responsible and fair tourism in the Mediterranean area), have decided to gather their knowledge and experience to increase the influence of responsible tourism. They will collaborate together, sharing information, participating in meetings and mutual events as partners supporting common projects. The exchange and mutual support of both will constitute the pillars of this collaboration.
The steps shared by both networks include:
- Developing touristic exchanges based on solidarity and fairness
- Promoting better understanding between the touristic and local community, considering fair tourism as a tool for sustainable local development. A tool which can complement and balance economic, social, environmental and cultural fields.
Focus on AREMDT network
AREMDT is a collaborative initiative of organisations located around the rim of the Mediterranean Sea. They cooperate to develop and promote responsible and sustainable tourism in the Mediterranean.
Men and women, actors living on the ground in the Mediterranean, are committed to the development and promotion of responsible tourism.
These actors envision solidarity tourism as a tool for the sustainable development of local communities of all the Mediterranean countries, in complement and in balance with other economic, social and cultural activities.
AREMDT members are convinced that we can address the major effects and issues facing the Mediterranean today by developing reciprocal tourism aimed at mutual discovery and understanding.
AREMDT brings together a network comprised of diverse associations that advance local development based in the Mediterranean, including organisations promoting international solidarity, cooperatives and experts in development that work in partnership with travel agencies specialising in solidarity tourism.
These entities share common values outlined in the AREMDT Charter, which are all applied on the ground by a collaborative endeavor towards progress.
In order to share these values and extend the opportunity to partake in this adventure, our members offer trips and solitary journeys in their territories.
