The Municipality of Valle Gran Rey has hosted the 15thSustainable Tourism Forum for La Gomera. Once again, administrations, groups and companies committed to sustainable tourism came together to plan for the future.
This year the Forum focused on the relationship between agriculture and tourism. The objective of this is to promote the primary sector as the backbone of the rural landscape and generator of economic activity, but by also respecting the natural environment and promoting coexistence in the countryside.
The main objective this year was to protect and promote the agricultural heritage of the island by promoting this to the local population, but, above all, for the thousands of tourists that La Gomera receives every year.
