Dear All,

RESPONSIBLE MOBILITIES for Responsible Tourism (RMRT) is glad to announce the trips opening for the 2013 season, with a trip to Tyre region. It is the first of 7 trips scheduled this year inside Lebanon.

The main thread theme adopted this year is ' WATER COOPERATION '. All our activities will be supporting the water cause in all its forms, with a flavor of fun and education, and as expected a clear attitude and implementation of Responsible Tourism principles of course.

This coming sunday March 10, 2013, we encourage you to participate to the Lebanon 'NATIONAL DAY OF NATURE RESERVES' and discover 'Tyre Coast Nature reserve', a new village called Derdghayya, and experience an easy walk Near the Litani river.

The next RM responsible tourism trip is scheduled on the 6th and 7th of April at the occasion of the World Water Day 2013, in Keserouane.

Do you think our trips deserve to be tagged as Responsible Tourism trips? If you feel and recognize the difference please send us back these 9 words: "ALL TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE TOURISM A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE !!"
