Beaches & natureBiosphere

Tossa de Mar has decided to stand for the Biosphere Destination Certificate and be part of the international club of sustainable destinations.

For turning around tourism management and maintain the leadership of the municipality, the Mayor of Tossa, Gisela Saladich, signed in June 19, 2017, a letter of commitment with the Responsible Tourism Institute (RTI), another step on the road to obtain the Biosphere Destination Certificate, which would make the municipality one of the 21 destinations in the world to reach this category.

Some of the benefits of sustainable tourism are: minimum environmental impact; encourages the responsible consumption; generates economic benefits from the flora and fauna resources; contributes to intercultural tolerance; promotes restoration, conservation and use of archaeological sites and monuments; improves the local’s life quality; promotes the improvement of infrastructures; generates local employment and stimulates the development of tourism companies, among many other things.
