Eco-responsables

Terra Gers® brochure

Terra Gers® organizes the visibility of the various Gers know-how in terms of ecotourism, eco-responsibility and short circuits.

Terra Gers® is an approach initiated and led by the Departmental Tourism Committee Destination Gers to promote a sustainable tourism offer.

 

Through the signing of the Terra Gers Charter, we have embarked on various actions to raise awareness among tourists and tourism stakeholders in terms of environmental protection and sustainable development.

Thus we highlight the Natura 2000 area which crosses our area of competence and all the actors who promote the protection of the environment such as the Water House, the Stone and Earth Space and the Artpiculture Garden.

We encourage hikers to be respectful of the natural spaces they pass through.

We are working with Jazz in Marciac for an eco-responsible festival.
