CO-CREATING A BETTER TOURISM FOR A BETTER WORLD

Impact Report

    MASS TOURISM IS DESTROYING THE PLACES WHERE WE LIVE AND TRAVEL

     MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TRAVEL THE WORLD EACH YEAR

    MOST OF THE MONEY THEY SPEND LEAVES THE DESTINATION THEY VISIT

    LEADING LOCALS TO GET IMPOVERISHED AND EVEN DISPLACED

    IN VENICE, FOR EXAMPLE, 70% OF RESIDENTS LEFT THE CITY IN THE PAST 70 YEARS

    WHICH MEANS THAT THE LOCAL CULTURE, HERITAGE, ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY ARE THREATENED

    BUT IT GOES BEYOND VENICE, IT IS HAPPENING OR WILL HAPPEN EVERYWHERE WE TRAVEL

    NOW IS THE TIME TO CHANGE  THE IMPACT OF TOURISM AND TO  TRANSFORM TOURISM IN A DRIVER OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

    IT ALL STARTS WITH
    US (YOU + US)

    TOGETHER, THROUGH VENEZIA AUTENTICA, WE ARE SHOWING THE WAY AND MAKING TOURISM BETTER IN VENICE.

    WE ARE WORKING TO MOVE FROM A TOURISM WHICH EXPLOITS DESTINATIONS AND VISITORS TO A TRUE WIN-WIN-WIN

    WHERE

    • You, as a visitor, enjoy a better experience and feel good about supporting the local community.
    • Quality local businesses benefit more from tourism as it easy and fun for you to patronize them
    • The destination retains more tourism revenue and sees an increased benefit and decreased footprint from every visitor

    WE’VE EMBARKED ON A JOURNEY TO TRANSFORM THE IMPACT AND EXPERIENCE OF TOURISM IN VENICE AND BEYOND, BY EMPOWERING TRAVELERS, LOCAL BUSINESSES & ASSOCIATIONS AND DESTINATION. OUR WORK IS BEING NOTICED AND OUR IMPACT GOING BEYOND VENICE.

    The work we’re doing in Venice, our pilot city, is gaining momentum. We’re humbled to have been featured in top-tier media, to be the object of universities case studies, invited to speak at prestigious events attended by industry and government leaders (e.g. Bled Strategic Forum) and to have received prestigious recognitions such as a nomination to the  UN WSA Award, an award dedicated to social innovation, as the best and most innovative digital solution in tourism and culture coming from Italy.

    Our goal: changing the impact of tourism worldwide.

    WITH YOUR SUPPORT, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

    WE ARE INNOVATING TO CREATE A BETTER FUTURE

    AND WORKING TOGETHER TO CARE FOR THE PLACE WHERE WE LIVE AND TRAVEL

    YOUR ACTIONS ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
