Produced by CIRIDD with the support of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, the fourteenth ECLAIRA newsletter is entitled "Tourism: supporting the transition".
It is a unanimously shared observation that tourist-related activities and the economic model on which they are based must change to move towards greater sobriety.
The decline in biodiversity and the depletion of resources encourage us to implement the many solutions before us. Diversification of tourism towards activities that consume less energy and water, renovation of buildings and infrastructure, green mobility, low-carbon alternative transport, reverse logistics, the fight against food waste, the issue of packaging, the end of single-use plastic, waste management...
A process of profound change in activities and practices that is heading in the right direction to meet consumer demand and preserve 150,000 salaried jobs in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
Circular economy is a real opportunity for sustainable tourism!
