Green Tourism Apps
Combining its strengths in web content with the topoGuide ecotourism mobile app developers Anadigit, Medventure now offers a suite of apps that offer maps, routes and photographs that take travelers on amazing adventures. Both in the city and beyond, the apps feature walking tours, hiking tours, cycling tours, road maps, and cultural tours, as well as natural and archeological attractions.
Together, MedVenture and Anadigit can produce professional ecotourism maps for both public and private organizations, whether you’re a hotel or a public authority that wants to promote its region. Here are two examples of our apps:
Despite the fact that tourism is a significant economic driver, it can also be quite damaging to the planet’s environment and peoples. Overtourism is a common problem in some “hot spots” where degradation caused by inflow can vastly overwhelm even the benefits of tourism revenue, especially when that revenue is not distributed equitably.International Ecotourism Society (TIES)
Ecotourism is now defined as responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education. Education is meant to be inclusive of both staff and guests.UNESCO
All tourism activities of whatever motivation – holidays, business travel, conferences, adventure travel and ecotourism – need to be sustainable. Sustainable tourism is defined as “tourism that respects both local people and the traveller, cultural heritage and the environment”. It seeks to provide people with an exciting and educational holiday that is also of benefit to the people of the host country.UNWTO
When responsibly planned and managed, tourism has demonstrated its capacity to support job creation, promote inclusive social integration, protect natural and cultural heritage, conserve biodiversity, generate sustainable livelihoods and improve human wellbeing. As the sector is experiencing tremendous growth, collective efforts to ensure its long-term sustainability are essential.European Commission
