Why go to a fancy hotel and pay for something you don't need, when you can go to the beautiful mountains and contribute to the growth of sustainable tourism worldwide?
Such tourism helps you discover the countries from a new perspective and play a part in the global transition to sustainability. That's a win-win situation - you take care of the planet around you, and contribute to the development of a whole region, while learning much more than you ever would in an ordinary hotel.
And it is surely much cheaper.
Nowadays 24 percent of tourism's CO2 emissions come from accommodations, and 4 percent from local activities. By sticking to sustainable tourism and helping promote such activities, you are also contributing to the betterment of our planet.
The Meridian Expedition visited Djebli Club - a hidden gem in the mountains of Northern Morocco. It is an ecological hostel that is built out of natural materials and is promoting a sustainable way of living by setting a great example of an initiative within sustainable tourism.
People from all over the world come to Djebli Club to meet other guests, share knowledge and hold different events, workshops and more. How does that work?
The best method of payment here is to hold a workshop and share your knowledge with other guests of the hostel. It's that great!
