More Sustainable Holidays and Destinations with Guide Me Green

Guide Me Green is a truly innovative project that focuses on a target group, which has so far been largely neglected: Travellers with a limited budget. They have been mostly overlooked as consumers of sustainable tourism experiences, due to the common misconception that a sustainable holiday is necessarily expensive.

We at Guide Me Green want to dispel this myth and show how sustainable tourism is actually for all budgets!


The Online training on sustainable tourism for all budgets developed within the Erasmus+ Guide Me Green project will be available online from 15 September 2023.

Who the training is aimed at:


  1. Tourism professionals: the course will enable you to design sustainable holidays that appeal to a broad consumer segment. Especially those who have so far been overlooked as green holidaymakers.
  2. Tourism lovers: You will learn more about the importance of sustainable tourism and get new ideas, knowledge and tools to organise a truly green holiday on a reasonable budget.
  3. Educators and trainers in the tourism field: with this training you will receive tools and
    ideas to bring a wider segment of learners closer to the topic of sustainable tourism. The
    will also be available for you to use the Guide Me Green materials in handbook for educators your lessons.

The training will be in e-learning format: you can proceed at your own pace. The content is
