The beginning

Responsible Tourism initiatives of the district started with a stakeholder workshop held on 6th May 2007. The activities were aimed at including all stakeholders in the region – people's representatives, representatives from government, local-self-governments, tourism industry, civil society organizations, academicians and media.

Later the activities accelerated and the Responsible Tourism projects began in January 2008.  The activities mainly focused on three areas – social, economic and environmental aspects of tourism.
