DestiMED using Ecological Footprint Methodology in launch of pilot tests


Ecotourism is touted as a green option to traditional vacations, but how green is it? And how do we measure that?

DestiMED builds off the success of MEET (Mediterranean Experience of Ecotourism), a European project that is now a non-profit association and Destination Management Organization (DMO). MEET was established with the intent of fostering a regional governance system that will coordinate, enhance and promote protected area ecotourism across the Mediterranean Basin.
