Innovative tourism services for regional growth and environmental protection


Prespa & Korçë 2013: In an age of accelerating globalization, tourism is one of the fastest developing industries worldwide. Untapped destinations are of particular interest to the growing tourist demographics, and the providers and stakeholders of this business. This is where Biotourism comes in. In an effort to avoid the
blunders of mass tourism where profit-led, and often foreign-owned, tourism providers run rampant in pristine areas destroying the very attractions that brought travelers in the first place, Biotourism generates a wholesome tourism system which ensures the preservation and enrichment of local lives and livelihoods. It weaves itself into the local ecosystem, local traditions and cultural roots, and creates fun and productive relationships between
travelers and destinations.

Biotourism [bios=life, & tourism] – tourism that respects bios and the environment – was introduced in 1985 by Professor Agni Vlavianos Arvanitis, President and Founder of the Biopolitics International Organisation (B.I.O.). The concept promotes tourism services that support the environment and conserve cultural and natural
resources and biodiversity. It focuses on a value system that promotes the appreciation of bios and offers a win-win situation – a win for the economy and a win for the environment, biodiversity, culture and, ultimately, local communities.
Preserving the richness and beauty of life, ensuring healthcare, education and equal opportunities in every country of the world can be a source of substantial profit, both financially, and socially. The ambivalent nature of the economic and environmental crises plaguing our planet today can be faced as an opportunity for environmentally friendly economic and social development. Threats can become challenges for sustainable Biotourism in the future.
