Tourism in Zanzibar has been affected by the global pandemic. In order to build a more resilient, eco-friendly, inclusive and responsible tourism, Chumbe Island developed the ‘Green Destination‘ campaign with the support of the German Ministry for Development Cooperation (BMZ).
The campaign centered around four main themes: sustainable waste management, marine conservation, sustainable seafood and island biodiversity & natural history and aimed to get tourism stakeholders from Zanzibar together to come up with creative solutions to some of the challenges faced by the sector!
Community competitions, workshops and outreach efforts were conducted free of charge for community members, tourism professionals and other stakeholders.
The following newsletters summarize the main project activities, interest facts about biodiversity in Zanzibar, some lessons learnt and each include a kids section with some engaging activities for children around sustainable tourism topics.
