For the past three years, GEF and other partners across Europe have been exploring Green perspectives on fair and carbon-free tourism. Building on our previous work, this roundtable will bring together some key actors in North Macedonia for a closing discussion on tourism alternative models and lessons learned so far.

About the Event

In this final event of the project, we will discuss green visions to transform tourism across Europe, setting the path to a different future for a Fair and Carbon Free Tourism.

We will hear the perspectives of researchers, experts and academics in North Macedonia as well as best practices and initiatives mapped within the project that have already led to transformation. Attention will be paid not just to environmental and climate concerns at the macro-level, but also to how this sector is strongly connected to local communities and their mission for a better quality of life.


This event is part of GEF’s Fair and Carbon Free Tourism project, which aims to identify and create conditions for collective action against detrimental social and environmental impacts of tourism. By engaging stakeholders in partner countries and developing a European transnational discussion on these challenges, we seek to build a community interested to transform this sector in the direction of low or zero carbon intensity and with a specific focus on social and economic justice.
