CAIRO - 24 April 2019: A group of 12 mass communication students at Cairo University launched in March a campaign called Egypt Invisible Map (EIM) to promote destinations fit for ecotourism adopting "Shades of Eco" as slogan. The students perceive tourism destinations in Egypt as having three shades: green, blue and yellow representing respectively landscapes, seas, and deserts and mountains.
CAIRO - 28 February 2019: As of 2015, ecotourism has been defined to mean "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education," according to the International Ecotourism Society (TIES), the oldest and largest ecotourism society in the world.
