The Urban Ecotourism Conference had more than 30 active participants representing more than a dozen countries: Brazil, Canada, Ecuador, England, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and the United States.


Participants agreed upon a declaration which sets the stage for greening tourism in cities around the globe. The declaration is a collective response to a common challenge -- making urban spaces more liveable while protecting biodiversity.


LESSONS LEARNED

Participants shared lessons learned around the globe -- what to repeat and what to avoid! We reviewed the ways in which urban tourism can be more ecological and brainstorm about alternatives to urban sprawl. We also looked at the role cities play as gateways to parks, protected areas and rural communities.
