Our heritage makes us what we are. Our past shapes the perception of our present and on this present, we build the future. The new generations are already living in a new mixed-reality world and it might happen that our roots and cultural heritage will be left out of it. We want to prevent this.

Tourism is one of the world's largest economic sectors, supporting 292 million jobs and generating 10.2% of global GDP. It is increasingly recognised as a vital contributor to job and wealth creation, environmental protection, cultural preservation and poverty alleviation (UN World Tourist Organisation). But, to play this important role in a sustainable manner, it needs to adapt again. SDG wheel
