Development of Sustainable Tourism
Village Monde is developing and supporting development projects in connection with sustainable and community-based tourism in order to diversify sources of income and to increase the autonomy of remote and isolated communities. Each project is based on the commitment of the community and the women and youth empowerment.
Village World is always looking for new destinations, safe haven, welcoming and proud villages, from regions far from mass tourism. Our volunteer explorers and our “Exploring a World of Sustainable Destinations” campaign allow :
- The identification of potential destinations for the platform;
- The analysis of existing infrastructures;
- Encounters and exchanges with the local stakeholders;
- The development of new partnerships;
- Visits to potential initiatives and communities;
- The validation of sustainable tourism development potential;
- The labelling of initiatives;
- Public awareness of sustainable tourism.

As opposed to traditional tourism, Village Monde is based on a network of small accommodations: a network in which the traveler can explore a region one village at a time.
- Creation or improvement of village tourism networks in remote areas in partnership with development partners and local communities;
- Support for the construction of new responsible accommodation sites;
- Strengthening local skills with a view to autonomy and sustainability;
- Connection to the digital world;
Promotion and marketing of the offering and activities.
In connection with its mission, Village Monde offers the opportunity for any existing local initiative meeting the criteria of sustainable tourism to integrate its vast network. Village Monde is committed to promoting and foster the marketing of this destination in its network, with its friends and all the travellers.
