Sustainable tourism is a form of tourism that respects the environment and local populations. Village Monde also aims to develop networks of human-sized accommodation in remote areas and outside the traditional circuits. This form of tourism values the authenticity of greetings and exchanges between communities and travellers. By highlighting the richness of the communities, it helps to strengthen the pride of the villagers. By offering new opportunities to young people and women, community-based tourism also helps to limit the rural exodus.
Village Monde’s actions are based on the principles of sustainable development: environmentally friendly, socially responsible and economically viable development. These dimensions are the basis of the analysis when identifying potential initiatives that can be supported, labelled and promoted on the Vaolo platform.
