This is the Decalogue of the responsible traveller we propose from Creative Rural. For sustainable tourism, for quality tourism!
Our Responsible Traveller Decalogue
1.- Prepare yourself for the trip.
Seek information about the place you will visit to familiarise yourself with its culture and ways of doing things.
2.- Respect people and their rights.
Any form of discrimination and exploitation violates and impoverishes the trip’s objectives.
3.- Help preserve the natural environment
and avoid leaving a footprint other than your shoe. If you visit sensitive areas, find out beforehand how to do so.
4.- Value the destination’s
artistic, archaeological and cultural heritage.
5.- Choose sustainable suppliers
that care about the environment and human rights when planning your trip.
6.- Use natural resources sparingly.
Try to minimise waste generation.
7.- Recycle the waste you generate.
If you can’t find containers nearby, take them home with you.
8.- Enjoy local customs, gastronomy and traditions.
If you buy gifts, make sure they express the local culture.
9.- Whenever possible, use local public or collective transport.
If possible, use non-motorised transportation and walk as much as possible.
10.- Open your mind to new experiences.
Be tolerant of diversity. Contribute to the development of responsible and sustainable tourism.
