Description of the project and partners
The principles of inclusion in tourism are based on social responsibility, a non-discriminatory approach and the involvement of anyone who is interested in participating in tourism. Application of the principles represents a global social trend, which aims to eliminate discrimination against people with health and social disadvantages and enable them to participate in tourism according to their needs and desires. By applying inclusion to tourism, tourism facilities and destinations can gain a competitive advantage by providing tourism services to disadvantaged visitors as well, gaining the credit of „socially responsible“ destinations. The project will identify the share of disadvantaged tourism in the overall tourism market in selected destinations and our proposals will focus on innovating the tourism offer also for handicapped tourists. In addition, tourism for all is not a form of mass tourism but, on the contrary, is part of the sustainable tourism development in destinations. The results of the proposed project will enable the implementation of two desirable social phenomena, namely the elimination of discrimination against disadvantaged fellow citizens to participate in tourism according to their wishes and the sustainable development of tourism in the destinations of the V4 countries.
