Tourism for livelihood of local communities
Promoting sustainable and community-based tourism in NABU's partner countries at the world‘s largest travel fair
10th March 2019 - The largest travel fair worldwide, the ITB Berlin opens its doors to the public on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of March 2019 at the Berlin ExpoCenter. NABU will showcase its work on community-based sustainable tourism, with a special focus on Ethiopia and Madagascar, in hall 21a, booth 102, together with its partner African Dreams.
According to our slogan "For People and Nature", NABU is committed to work together with people on conserving nature. Tourism can be a great tool to support conservation activities, if the linkage between tourism interests, nature conservation and income for the local community is well established.
NABU has been supporting local initiatives e.g. in Ethiopia, Madagascar and Kenia, in establishing new tourism infrastructure, such as hiking trails, camp sites or nature view points for more than 10 years already. Always focussing on sustainable, nature-focussed travel destinations and a close cooperation with the local communities.
We kindly invites you to learn more about our activities, the regions we support and how you can make an impact with your travel choice at ITB 2019, hall 21a, booth 102.
