Sustainable Tourism

The Discovery in the Dark – National Parks Wales project is part of a wider sustainable tourism agenda. National Parks Wales’ position statement on sustainable tourism supports the definition from the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism that states that:

“(Sustainable Tourism) is any form of development, management or tourist activity which ensures the long-term protection and preservation of natural, cultural and social resources and contributes in a positive and equitable manner to the economic development and well-being of individuals living, working or staying in protected areas.”
