We are committed to supporting sustainable livelihoods in rural communities and maintaining their cultural, social and natural environment.


We are using resources as if we had two planets, not one.

There can be no 'plan B' because there is no 'planet B.'

What's New?

June 21, 2020

We are very happy to announce the launch of the Black Sea Sustainable Rural Tourism  Program web portal.

Despite Covid-19, we felt that it was time to unveil the site to give those who are dreaming of traveling again something to look forward to and support a sustainable approach to travel.

The three countries that are currently included are Georgia, Turkey, and Ukraine.  Out partners in Ukraine and Turkey have been hit hard by the crises and we are working with them to develop destinations for the late summer and fall.

Georgia is anticipating reopening its borders during the latter part of July and as we promised, when you return we will be there.

You can visit the Travel BSST web portal here.  Welcome and keep safe!
