With more frequent and more severe extreme events, the consequences of the climate crisis are affecting people and businesses alike and the touristic sector, in Italy, has not been spared by the fury of such events: in October 2018, Vaia storm destroyed thousands of hectares of forests of the most famous mountain touristic destinations in the north-east of Italy; one year before, in November 2019, Venice was flooded by an exceptionally high tide that none of the inhabitants had seen.

On Wednesday 18th November, at 18 o’clock (Rome Time), our team will present the webinar titled “Sustainable tourism approaches to tackle the climate crisis: examples from destinations in Italy”during which Catie Burlando and Federico Pinato of Etifor will share insights and lesson learned from their work with two tourist destinations in Italy: Valsugana-Lagorai (a certified sustainable destination to the GSTC Criteria) and Alta Badia.
