Richard Shepard, our founder and Trustee, conducted presentations of the Black Sea Sustainable Rural Tourism Program, its new web platform for information and bookings as well as the need for sustainable approaches to tourism in Kaş and Datça, Turkey.
Organized by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature in Turkey, participants included tourism representatives, conservationists and local government. Following the presentations, the audience asked questions about the BSST Program, its criteria for joining and how accommodations and activities could be shown on the BSST web-platform.
Materials for joining, how the BSST Program works and the Global Sustainable Tourism Council criteria will be distributed by WWF and follow-on meetings will be held the first week of April.
