Responsible Marine Tourism

We work to promote responsible tourism, for example working on local and global problems such as plastics and climate change. We provide consultancy services to hotels and also help to create programs to promote responsible tourism. One of our core projects is TuriMarBa, promoting responsible tourism along the Barcelona and Catalonian coast, by organising different outreach and educational activities along with the local company Anèl·lides, Serveis Ambientals Marins.

Current Projects

TuriMarBa

One of our core sustainable tourism projects is TuriMarBa, promoting responsible tourism in the Barcelona and Catalonian coastal region, by organizing different outreach and educational activities along with the local company Anèl·lides Serveis Ambientals marins. Within this project, we advance awareness of the problem of plastics, increase marine environmental responsibility and promote Barcelona’s marine biodiversity in the tourism sector, as well as helping to find adequate solutions for responsible tourism. This is how Barcelona can become a point of reference for responsible and environmental marine tourism.

Our objectives are:

  • To sensitize and make people aware of the problem of marine waste, as well as to find solutions to promote recycling and circular economy.
  • Approach and contribute to the recycling and reuse of waste through artistic recycling.
  • Critically assess human intervention in the environment and adopt behaviors that favor the protection of the natural environment.
  • Promote knowledge about the great biodiversity of Barcelona’s beaches.
