Discover Eco-Romania, a tool for nature conservation, local development and education

ECOTRANS is providing technical support to AER, Romania, with financial support from the German Environment Foundation. German project title: "Umweltkommunikationsmaßnahmen zur Entwicklung eines nachhaltigen Tourismus im Nationalpark Călimani-Dornaland und weiteren Modellregionen in Rumänien"

The project aims to bring additional values for nature conservation integrating it into a modern concept of ecotourism destination, where protected area administrations together with local municipalities and tourism businesses are in partnership. The main reason for the partnership will be to guide the whole micro-region towards sustainable development and to better use the protected areas for education and communication about the natural and cultural values of the destination for visitors.
