What's new in ECEAT Finland
In 2008, our central activities will again include marketing and providing other information on the Internet, ecological and cultural quality development and co-operation with the ECEAT International network. We are also open to new projects and forms of co-operation.
Sustainability in tourism projects
Supported by funding from the Ministry of the Environment, ECEAT Finland is now working on Environmental Education in Tourism. The project is aimed at improving the ecological and cultural qualities of tourism services and at increasing the environmental awareness of tourists. The main goal is to develop a new internet based quality system, which will offer the member enterprises tools for assessing and improving their sustainability. This improved quality system is being developed in co-operation with ECEAT International and our Nordic sister organisations.
Another seminar coming up in spring 2008
In November 2007 ECEAT Finland organized a seminar entitled 'Environmental Education in Tourism' in Helsinki.
ECEAT International will introduce a renewed comprehensive website and database in spring 2008, in order to strengthen international co-operation and marketing. Finnish ECEAT accommodations will also be presented in English on this new site.
