Description

Ecotourism (nature-exploration tourism), outdoor recreational activities, hiking trips to natural landmarks, and adventures away from civilization constitute a fast growing segment of the travel industry. Every year the number of tourists who prefer that kind of travel increases by dozens of percentage points. In many countries ecotourism has become mainstream, offering ample opportunities for both business and socio-economic development at the local and even national levels.

In Russia, the market for quality ecotourism services is taking its very first steps. Challenges facing the domestic industry of outdoor recreational activities have an impact on a number of sectors, including government regulation, tourism services, environmental protection, infrastructure development, equipment and technologies, professional competencies, and educating the new generation.

Sustainable Tourism: Global Challenges and Discovering Russia, an international conference, will take place in Sochi from the 17th to the 20 th of October. Well-known subject-matter experts, managers of natural protected areas, specialized tour operators, experienced guides, industry representatives and environmentalists from all over the world will gather for a comprehensive discussion about challenges, opportunities and milestones on the path towards sustainable development of ecotourism in Russia and worldwide; they will also outline a plan to cooperate in order to achieve further progress.

Conference organizers include: Slava Foundation of Vyacheslav Fetisov, the UN Goodwill Ambassador for the Arctic and the Antarctic, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Russia, the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rostourism), Sports Tourism Federation of Russia, Roszapovedcenter – a government agency for the development of specially protected natural areas and the Interros Group.

Ecotourism is a new, rapidly-developing industry worldwide. In Russia, ecotourism development goals have been laid out at the highest state level. Ecotourism development holds great promise, presents exciting opportunities and requires a special approach that takes into account the fragility of our natural world, which is a key component of travelers’ expectations and experience.

Sustainable development is the result of concerted efforts by people who find ways to cooperate in today’s fast-paced, complex environment, and who strive to make the world a better place for generations to come. Ecotourism sets a new standard for the industry’s development and raises the bar for everyone involved, from the business community, to the government, environmental agencies and grass-roots movements. Change for the better will not happen on its own accord, and it will not take place without careful planning and diligent efforts founded on mutual respect, partnership and dedicated leadership.

France and Russia are countries with a rich culture, strong traditions and strong- willed people who have repeatedly found the opportunity to learn from each other in the historical perspective. According to various estimates, the share of the tourism industry in France’s GDP ranges from 7 to 10%, while in Russia it does not exceed 2%. The ratio of indicators for natural tourism in our countries is even less favorable towards Russia. French and Russian experts willcompare the principles and practices of cooperation between the authorities and business in the domain of development of nature tourism in both countries.

Workshop 6. Tourist Expectations, Experiences and Risks in the Wilderness
