Welcome to Ecotouristic Country
Start date: May 10, 2015,
End date: May 9, 2016
As ‘Ekoturim Gençleri’ we are trying to raise awareness on ecotourism which means sustainable, safe, responsible trip, respecting local cultures, nature and the environment in our precious world through non governmental and civil society organisations and our university workshops we take part in.
The aim of our project is to give support ecotourism efforts in Milas and motivate both local people and participants from other countries on ecotourism through new, applicable, creative, sutainable tourism. We would like to inspire both locals and participants according to the benefits of ecotourism trying to let them aware the diasadvatages or destroying effects of mass tourism which will give long term destruction to the environment. And we will make them realise if we continue like that future generations will face dreadful results. Therefore our project on the theme of ecotourism will take place in Milas, the town of Muğla who is the leader city of tourism in Turkey. We are aiming at raising awareness of ecotourism in both our town and all around Europe besides the world.
Our project activities will be carried out in Muğla Milas under Erasmus+ K1 youth programme. It will last 8 days including the arrival and the departure days. The project date will be 7th-15th August 2015 with partners from Poland, Spain, Italy, Greece, Hungary. There will be 30 European participants and 6 Turkish participants. 36 young participants will work for our project altogether. As Eko-Turizm Gençliği ,we gave the title ‘Welcome to Ecotouristic country’ to our project.
While we were deciding our project activities we were in cooperation with our partners and we made the use of nonformal and informal training methods. We will use some activities such as simulation games, drama, role plays, workshops, teamwork groups, outdoor activities, presentations. Throughout our project we will have workshops on ecotourism.
Under the frame of Erasmus+K1 programme, we are aming at showing the negative effects of mass toursim while giving information on alternative sustainable tourism which is called ecotourism for our region considered as just for sun and beach holiday to participants and the local non governmental organisations through collaborating with international organisations who have much experience in that topic. We would like to show our opportunities of our region to them except beach holiday resorts.
If our project aming at the inspiring the new alternative idea of ecoturism in Milas gets the approval by the National Agency, It will reach its target and be a new opportunity for the new generations and people living there.
