In Tuscania, the capital of the Italian peninsula, the first-ever Ecotourist Association is launching a project aimed at reducing carbon emissions and promoting eco-tourism activities in the city.
The new initiative aims to promote eco-passports, encourage eco-vibes, and encourage tourism in the region.
It’s a project that will help promote tourism and green infrastructure projects that benefit the environment, the association’s director Luca Tulli told ABC News.
“This is a good thing,” he said.
The first-of-its-kind ecotoursism program is being implemented in Toscana. “
I am very optimistic that this project will increase tourism, and I am very confident about that.”
The first-of-its-kind ecotoursism program is being implemented in Toscana.
There are currently some 15,000 tourists in the area every year, with some 60,000 visitors visiting Tuscana each year.
While the number of tourists has risen steadily over the past decade, Tullis said the number was increasing faster than the number coming to Tuscant, as well as other cities such as Genoa and Genoa.
“Tuscana is a great example for tourism,” he explained.
“People love the city, they love the scenery, and they love it because it is eco-green.”
The project will be administered by the Tuscans’ own Ecotoursist Association, which operates a website where locals can download the EcoPassport.
Tulli said the Eco Passport will allow tourists to buy a pass for one hour and a day, or a permit for up to two hours and a half, which is equivalent to the average three-hour ride on the Metro.
He said the pass would be valid for one year and would cost €60 ($79.20).
Tullis described the project as an attempt to encourage eco tourism in Tuskanovac.
“This [pass] is for tourists, it is for all of us,” he told ABC.
“It’s for tourists to enjoy this place, this beautiful city and it is important that tourists are able to enjoy it because Tuskani is not like any other place in the world.”
Tuscans are among the world’s top destinations for eco-cide tourism.
According to the International Centre for Ecotouring, the number is projected to grow by 10% annually to a peak of 3.2 million visitors in 2018.
In 2015, the Eco-Tourist Council of Tuscanias, which represents about 600 local businesses and organisations, issued a challenge to all the country’s cities to produce eco-certificates for their tourists.
While the initiative is an effort to reduce carbon emissions, Tuscan’s tourism economy has been hit by a drop in visitor numbers, with a 2015 survey finding that only 10% of tourists visited Tuscano in 2017.
According to Tullian, tourists are looking for eco tourism because of the promise of eco-resorts, green spaces and eco-consciousness.
“[Tourists] love the countryside because it has a lot of green space, and it’s also beautiful, so they want to spend time with it, they want the green atmosphere to be there,” he added.
