It was a difficult year in some ways, and wonderful for others. Perhaps it is always so. 2015 was the year of many wars, the historic thawing between the US and Cuba, the earthquake in Nepal, the terrorist attacks, the space travel of Samantha Cristoforetti, Expo in Milan, the discovery of water on Mars, the migrants died at sea, the historic climate agreement at the Paris conference.It’s difficult to take stock.

But for sustainable tourism it has certainly been a very important year. More and more people want to reduce their carbon footprint during their holiday, choosing the train rather than the car and choosing eco friendly accommodations, which in turn become more and more. This year we presented the Ecodots project results, we participated in the Avaaz ’s march for climate and, with you, we are committed every day to making the world a better and greener place.

We did it also through our blog and now we invite you to relive with us this 2015 with the most important posts and the ones you liked more.
