Developing Regenerative Tourism Practices: Insights from the AGORA Guide

The Regenerative Guide is a comprehensive document that outlines the challenges and barriers faced by small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in developing regenerative tourism experiences. The Guide is developed as part of the Agora Project, which is a European initiative aimed at promoting sustainable tourism practices and its partnership comprises organisations from France, Spain, Belgium, Bulgaria, Italy, Norway, Cyprus and Greece. Shortly, the Guide will also be available online, in French, Spanish, Bulgarian, Italian, Norwegian and Greek.

The Guide seeks to provide practical recommendations to SMEs interested in adopting regenerative tourism practices. It is also a valuable resource for policymakers and other stakeholders interested in promoting sustainable tourism practices. The Guide is designed to be accessible and user-friendly, and it includes a range of case studies, best practices, and country profiles.

One of the interesting sections of the Guide is the Country Profiles, which provide an overview of the current state of regenerative tourism in different European countries. The Greek country profile, for instance, highlights the challenges and opportunities of developing regenerative tourism practices in the country. The profile discusses Greece’s unique natural and cultural heritage, which makes it an ideal destination for regenerative tourism. It also outlines the challenges faced by SMEs in adopting sustainable practices, such as limited resources and a lack of awareness and training.

To address these challenges, the Guide recommends a range of solutions, such as collaborative efforts between SMEs and other stakeholders, education and training programs, and the development of public-private partnerships. The Guide also highlights the importance of responsible tourism practices that benefit both local communities and the environment.

In conclusion, the Guide is a valuable resource for anyone interested in promoting sustainable and regenerative tourism practices. It provides practical recommendations and case studies that can help SMEs adopt regenerative tourism practices. The Greek country profile provides insight into the opportunities and challenges of developing regenerative tourism practices in the region.
