NFI Christmas special! Donate fruit trees for a good future!

People in rural regions of Africa are particularly affected by climate change – the Corona Pandemic is making the situation even worse. The planting of fruit trees in the frame of Climate Fund projects contributes both to climate protection and to the fight against poverty.

30 euros will enable the planting and care of five fruit trees and the accompanying awareness-raising measures – an important contribution to climate protection and an equally important sign of international solidarity in particularly challenging times!

Transforming tourism is the demand of the day - this is what the "Transforming Tourism Initiative" is calling for from the World Tourism Organisation UNWTO on the occasion of World Tourism Day on 27 September. The global network of NGOs, tourism professionals and academia identifies concrete measures on how the tourism industry can emerge from the current COVID-19 crisis in a more sustainable and strengthened way. It calls for rapid and committed action on the part of UNWTO - and the involvement of all stakeholders in a spirit of partnership.

#tourismusneudenken (rethink tourism)

The corona virus determines our lives - and also our ways of travelling. Curfews and border closures have paralysed the tourism industry. Now the borders are opening again, tourism is picking up speed again. But how will the corona crisis affect the future development of tourism?
It is time to think about how we want to travel in the future and to initiate a turn towards sustainability! In this sense we are launching the campaign #tourismusneudenken (rethink tourism) in the social media channels of respect_NFI.
