Let’s promote sustainable and respectful tourism in Budapest
Turizmusonline.hu reported that the Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre (BFTK) launched its new Tourist Education Mini Poster Campaign in Budapest to raise awareness to the preservation of the clean public places in the capital and to promote respectful tourism among travelers.
Nowadays, in many big cities and in Budapest, too, the local inhabitants raise their voice against the negative impacts tourism has on their neighbourhood. Furthermore, among others, they judge the inappropriate and loud behaviour of tourists and the trash left in public places.
The significance of Budapest among the well-known tourist destinations in the world is well-grounded thanks to the favourable prices of low-cost airlines, the unique thermal baths, the variety of private accomodations available in the capital and the Sziget festival, as well.
The significance of these is without doubt and their popularity increases the prestige of Budapest, but the current situation has reached a point when it became important to raise awareness to respectful tourism. That is what the Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre (BFTK) advocates with its new educational programme.
BFTK shares this year’s motto of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) that is ‘endurable tourism’. Based on this principle, BFTK launched its new Tourist Education Mini Poster Campaign in which they ask tourists to be respectful and grateful for the environment, local people and the economy.
The Campaign conveys the message through a poster where a bottle encloses a piece of Budapest with the following lovely phrase: Travel. Enjoy. Respect. Welcome to Budapest.
The posters, realised through the assistance of BKK and Prox Média, can be seen in the carriages of metro line 4, and hopefully, during travelling, people would better consider it and keep the message in mind.
