Feedback: Go-Responsible, or how to (re)invent tourism in 2020
The Covid-19 crisis, by shaking up our habits and our projects, has allowed the emergence of some good interventions.
Indeed, the Go-Responsible project, which trains and accompanies young people from Martinique, Greece and Bulgaria in the creation of initiatives in the field of responsible tourism, has also been transformed during this period.
Under the initiative of Beth Wright, an expert in community and sustainable tourism, and her team, a webinar was organised as part of the project. On the programme: 3 sessions to learn how to adapt one’s business to the crisis, consider virtual tourism or find government aid for one’s business.
The opportunity, therefore, for some forty participants spread over the three webinars, as well as for the people behind the project, to discover new dimensions of tourism.
Julia, president of the association D’Antilles et D’Ailleurs :
“In these difficult times, when the tourism sector has not been spared, it has been more than interesting to discover different alternatives for businesses in the tourism sector. These discoveries have been made based on concrete examples of tourism companies around the world, which have adapted their model during the crisis by using on the one hand new technologies and in particular social networks to make people travel from their sofas, and on the other hand by modifying their added value and thus adapting their offers to a more local and internal tourism. These sessions as well as the exchanges in sub-groups during the webinars allowed everyone to leave motivated and full of ideas”.
These are all new skills that will undoubtedly prove very useful for tourism in the years to come, despite, it is hoped, a return to normality!
