Greece Aiming to Improve Sustainability Practices in Tourism
Participating in a panel discussion titled “The Impact of Climate Change on Tourism”, Gerekou said that the extension of the tourism season was a step in the right direction. “Despite the fact that climate change is here and there will be consequences in southern [Europe], the Mediterranean is holding up well, and so is Greece. Autumn in Greece is gradually becoming the ideal summer,” she said.
Lastly, Gerekou referred to GNTO initiatives aimed at showcasing the sustainable side of Greece. “Greece has the potential to emerge as a leading, sustainable destination offering essential well-being experiences, where the modern visitor will enjoy regenerative, holistic experiences of body, mind and soul. This is also the meaning of the GNTO’s latest promotional campaign: “Greece – A Life-changing Experience’,” she said.
