The project was conceived to transform the relationship between the tourist sector and the environment, reducing and offsetting the negative consequences associated with visiting tourists and their accommodation, making the latter the custodians of marine ecosystems.
Through a web platform and strategic agreements with hotels, individual tourists can offset their own emissions by financing measures to protect the sea and coastline.
Sea the Change intends to create a system that benefits all parties and enables the tourist sector to prosper in a sustainable way, ensuring adequate financing for marine environment protection initiatives, while involving local communities.
The initiatives can offset emissions allowances deriving from the tourist sector, while supporting the economic operators involved in a process of assessment, analysis, and reduction of negative impacts.
