Rantapallo, Finland’s most popular travel media, organized yesterday a travel bloggers’ evening on “Sustainable Tourism”. The key speakers were Julia Jänis (Chairperson of the Finnish Association for Fair Tourism) and Tytti McVeigh (Project Manager of the Finnish Association for Fair Tourism).
The Finnish Association for Fair Tourism is a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) that was founded in February 2003. It’s purpose is to promote responsible tourism and educate travelers and tourism operators about the principles of fair tourism.
