In the beautiful Nature Park Hoge Venen WWF Belgium invited partners from Ukraine and Romania to an Exchange Week on Ecotourism.
The aim was not only to exchange best practices and learn, but also to develop a real action plan to bring eco-tourism to Maramures, an undiscovered region in the northeastern Carpathians (beers!).
The event stretched over four days and included several field trips, a visual record helped the group to keep track of their insights, ideas and goals. Also, the people only dropping by for a day could instantly see what the group had been talking about and engage.
One year later, a first group of super green eco tourists is on his way to Maramures and a strategic action plan was adopted.
