Redefining Tourism for a Greener Future

How do sustainable tourism and circular economy go together? 🌱

In a GIZ webinar as part of the EXI knowledge transfer, the Munich-based consultancy AGEG Tourism for Sustainability provides an overview of how the principles of the circular economy represent an opportunity for the tourism sector and thus for global environmental protection. 

The β˜• "Virtual Coffee" on March 26, 2024, focused on the intersection of sustainable tourism and the circular economy. In her presentation, Barbara Fritz, owner and managing director of AGEG Tourism for Sustainability, showed how the integration of circular economy principles can reduce the negative environmental impact of the tourism industry. 

Compelling real-life examples πŸ“ are listed here that show the transformative potential for sustainable tourism in the context of circular economy:
