Opportunities for Ecotourism in Slovakia

We invite you to watch and participate in a international online conference “Opportunities for Ecotourism in Slovakia”, which will take place in the form of online presentations with the participation of Slovak and foreign experts on sustainable and nature-oriented tourism.

In Slovakia, there is currently a discussion running about expectations and conditions of protecting nature, and besides, legitimate questions arise about the sustainable development of regions, efficient use of local natural resources, employment, the importance of nature for the future … And it is an Ecotourism that is the ideal tool that is helping to solve these issues, as evidenced by the many successful and inspiring examples abroad. The main goal of the conference is therefore to present the opportunities and possibilities for the development of Ecotourism in Slovakia.
