      A lot of tourists donate to various causes in the places where they go on holidays.
    • Greenwashing
    • What?
      Greenwashing  “organizations that attempt to show that they are adopting practices beneficial to the environment”
    • Why?
      Changing buying patterns in consumer markets
      Green = a new sort of ‘good manners’
      Green = fashionable, delivers social status
      Greenwashing existence means something positive but…
      People lose confidence in real green products
    • Solution!
      Companies:
      Green marketing = not about making normal things seem green (greenwashing), but about making green stuff seem normal!
      Consumers
      Look out for the signs!

      Fluffy language

      Obvious lies
      Not product relevant

      A recognised third-party label
      Significant and major commitments
      product relevant

    • Eco- or egotourism ?
    • What
      • More and more people :
      -> Ecotourism
      • But is it so “green” ?  NO!
      • They only think they’re doing an ecological good thing
      So what is it ??
      A marketing concept
    • How come?
      Novelty-seeking and snobbery
      Their travel acts as a marker of social position: separates them from conventional tourists. not the same impact as that of the mass tourists.
      No reflection on the environmental impact of the construction of hotel, the use of airplanes, … .
    • Positive argument
      Personal developpement
      Trying to be “eco” is better than doing nothing
      Economy for local people
      Financial sources
      Chance to survive
    • EGOtourism
      Differencesbetweeneco -and egotourism
      ECOtourism
      Genuinely care about the environment
      Integrate in the local community
      enjoy the experience without bragging about it
      Makes people believe that you want to do something for the environment
      Shock the local community by your behavior and modern devices (e.g. camera)
      Bragging , don't stop talking about the fact that YOU had an eco-vacation
    • Conclusion
      Eco-tourism:
      Not as “green” as people think
      Stimulates the local economy
      Great advantages but also great disadvantages
      “The only good tourist is the one who stays home!”
