Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Art course in Romania

Environment

Our placements are designed to immerse you in a different culture, living and working with local people. There’s plenty to gain personally from this challenge – a sense of achievement, broader horizons and some wonderful memories. But we make sure that local people, the environment and wildlife benefit too.

Supporting local wildlife- we work with a bear sanctuary and dog shelter close to Brasov to offer our support to local wildlife conservation. We encourage participants to visit the bear sanctuary as tourists to learn more about the fate of bears in Eastern Europe.

Environment - Our company takes an environmentally responsible attitude towards recycling and reusing of waste products. We also offset carbon emissions in our office (gas, electricity, business mileage) and encourage all participants to offset their flight emissions via a carbon offset scheme run in conjunction with Tree Aid. We also offer the option of travelling there by train to cut down on carbon emissions. Our volunteers are given a pre-departure briefing where they are encouraged to minimise waste and to live in a way that will not have a detrimental effect on the country. This extends to not wasting water or electricity.

Community

Meeting local needs - We have been running programmes in and around Brasov since 1999 and have long-standing relationships with local people. We try to spread the employment opportunities around local people, and employ a representative, a teacher, transfer drivers and other helpers to make our projects possible.

The project also helps the local economy. Our participants spend money on food and leisure; we pay rent to a local landlord and we arrange day trips and meals out in local attractions. In addition, we donate money regularly to the various charitable projects that we work with in response to their needs.

Cultural sensitivity - Our pre-departure briefing includes a special session entitled ‘Responsible Tourism’ where we discuss cultural differences and sensitivities as well as advising volunteers on appropriate conduct. People a briefed on what is considered polite in terms of eating, greeting and dressing. It is encouraged that all volunteers learn some Romanian prior to departure, and they get a helping hand whilst out there as well.
