Why responsible tourism?

“A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing.
And when Humanity lands there, it looks out, and, seeing a better country, sets sail.
Progress is the realisation of Utopias.”
Oscar Wilde -Irish writer

Building a better world !

Hopineo wishes to contribute to the construction of a world where social, environmental and economic balances are respected and placed in the heart of every human activity.

With nearly 20% of the world population that crosses borders each year, tourism is one of the leading sectors of economic activities, and the first employer in the world.
By acting specifically for the inclusion and integration of sustainable development in tourism, each citizen, each organization and Hopineo contribute to a better world :

  • a world that uses its dynamic or progress to enrich the cultures of each other, promoting inter-cultural dialogue and peace ;
  • a world where each national and international traveler feeds this dynamic of progress, expressing and developing their citizenship;
  • a world where tourism professionals insure their economic viability allowing travelers to combine the elsewhere pleasure, the richness of meeting others, environnemental conservation and local development.

Mission: raising awareness, uniting, acting for responsible tourism

Tourism professionals, which the majority are very small, or small companies, are often isolated in their initiative and lack of time to deepen it.

Our objective : Highlighting what is done well, bringing to the sector and its actors a field expertise and taking part to its dissemination.
The mission that we give ourselves is triple :
