New year rhymes with new objectives. At the Pays d'Ajaccio Tourist Office, we have already chosen ours and we have decided to share one of them with you in particular: sustainable tourism.
We are a Tourist Office but we are above all lovers of our region. That is why we want to help you discover its many treasures while taking care of them.
A GREEN EVENT PROGRAMME
In terms of events, our programme will be coloured green.
In addition to our flagship operation "The Ajaccio Region celebrates Spring which combines the discovery of the cultural and natural heritage with outdoor activities against the backdrop of the smells, colours and traditions of spring, we wish to promote festivals, fairs and any event with a nature theme.
Of course, historic festivals and shows are still on the bill. Backstage is where we will opt for low environmental impact logistics.
OUR SMALL DAILY ACTIONS
For some time now, we have been adopting "green" habits both internally and with our customers...
Whenever possible, our holiday advisors encourage visitors to use environmentally friendly means of transport. Green travel during their holidays: tours by bicycle or electric scooter, use of public transport (maritime shuttle, train service, etc.).
The sending of our digital brochures is favoured over the traditional postal mailing.
In addition to this, all the daily internal actions: sorting of waste (paper, cardboard, plastic), management of printing...
THE COMMITMENT OF OUR PARTNERS
Our partners have the same passion for our territory as we do. They are therefore organised so that their activity has a minimal ecological impact.
Some accommodation providers have European eco-labels(Ecolabel, Clé Verte...), others have joined forces around the local Rispettu label. The aim is to inform customers about the environmental impact of their establishment.
In terms of cuisine, the restaurant owners of the Ajaccio region favour short circuits for the products they put on the menu or cultivate their own vegetable garden.
Our activity providers place the discovery of the treasures of our region at the heart of their offers.
The walks take place in places steeped in history or with remarkable fauna and flora...
For sea trips, take hybrid boats or sailboats.
For the more sporty, the Gulf of Ajaccio can be discovered by kayak or paddle.
As you can see, 2022 will be a green year for us! Why don't you join us in this adventure? We've even put together a little programme for a slow tourismweekend...
