Low carbon travel

The European Low Carbon Travel Project (ATRE)

About the project

The ERASMUS+ project "Acting for European Responsible Tourism (ATRE) – Low Carbon Travel" aims to controlling the contribution of tourism to climate change by involving producers and consumers of travel and tourism services in more responsible and low-carbon travel.

Because tourism is both victim and executioner, its sustainability based on resources and destinations threatened by climate change, to which it largely contributes in its current forms, it is imperative to rethink our tourist practices. Today, tourism is responsible for around 10% of global GHG emissions, and of these, 77% are attributed to transport alone.

A European project

The ATRE project is a European ERASMUS+ project. To reverse the curve of GHG emissions, it mobilizes anetwork of european actorssensitive to the sustainable development of tourism. Five countries are involved: France, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Greece.

Three awareness tools

To reverse the curve of GHG emissions, the ATRE project mobilizes a network of european actors sensitive to the sustainable development of tourism. Five countries are involved: France, Belgium, Italy, Spain and Greece

Three educational tools for raising awareness of several targets are produced:

  • An online training for travel designers and sellers (travel agencies, TO)

  • An online APP for tourist service providers (drivers, cooks, hosts, site managers, guides)

  • An online game for travelers

 

Each addresses the understanding of the issues and the measurement, reduction, contribution and adaptation to GHG emissions. They will all be available at the start of 2024, in the 6 languages of the project (French, English, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Dutch).
