We continue to search for commendable and do-able “Green Ideas” that relate to travel & tourism, from all corners of the world. We deliberately use the term “Green Ideas” to avoid the confusion of all the different terminology, ie: Responsible Tourism, Sustainable Tourism, Philanthropic Tourism, Ecotourism, Environmental Tourism and all the related projects – to name a few – and categorize them as “Green Projects” for ease of understanding.

All of this essentially boils down to – borrowing the term from the Corporate World approach – the only viable method of incorporating “Green” into any business model is for it to touch 3 areas 1. Profit, 2. People, and 3. Planet.

Here’s a look at the Green Apprenticeship at Lotan Center for Creative Ecology in Israel. Aimed at teenagers and young people who want to immerse themselves in community-based and eco-based projects in Israel.
