Regenerative tourism within the framework of the CE4RT project creates the opportunity for SMEs to join a shared journey that:

  • Generates profitable businesses
  • Tackles climate action
  • Benefits the host community
  • Champions local places – nature, culture and heritage
  • Empowers visitors to be responsible

What is included in the programme?

  • There are a vast number of supports and grants available to help businesses become more sustainable but it can be overwhelming for SMEs to figure out even where to start.
  • This programme first provides an overview of regenerative tourism and explores how each SME can reimagine running their businesses for a better world.
  • The programme then goes on to provide one on one supports to help a business tackle their sustainability journey up to and including international certification.
  • The collaboration helps SMEs go beyond sustainability and think about their visitors’ impact and the impact on nature and the local community. It makes both business sense and it’s absolutely essential for the future of our planet.
