ABOUT THE EVENT
Eco-friendly itineraries will be the new measuring stick for
eco travel and ecotourism.
The original dialogue took place in October and November 2003.
The Environmental Impact of Transportation Conference was Planeta's
13th e-conference (see index).
We examined how to 'get there from here' without leaving an
indelible footprint on the environment.
Participants looked at the environmental impact of transportation
at local, regional and international levels. The event provided
a unique opportunity for an in-depth dialogue and shed light
on practical actions for travelers, entrepreneurs and policy-makers.
This online event was co-sponsored by Planeta.com,
