Ecotourism could be described as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people and involves interpretation and education”. It is believed that many local communities can benefit from promoting eco-tourism in their areas, especially if they are located close to natural parks and protected areas. The youth organization YEE would like to find ways to empower young Europeans to feel more responsible for their homes and communities and to have sufficient competencies to promote eco-tourism and protect their homeland. The aim of this training course is to strengthen youth participation and active citizenship through ecotourism and related projects.
