FlockEO, a sustainable tourism platform, announces a partnership with Eden Tour, a network of twenty-two travel agencies in the West of France, to help them in their transition to more sustainable tourism.

A tourism sector in full transition

If there is one piece of information that is beyond doubt: the massification of tourism generates pressure on ecosystems and on our societies. The sector has adapted to all the crises it has gone through, and today it is called upon to once again deploy its formidable capacity to adapt to climate change. But for that, it is necessary that all the players in the sector join in this transition.

It is in this context that the Eden Tour network has started a CSR approach in favor of tourism that respects the three pillars of sustainable development. “I want to introduce our teams to responsible tourism. The first contact with FlockEO therefore came at the right time. I found an attentive listening to my problems of sensitization of the teams. Today, it is a support with which I have set up training actions for my teams and a gradual labeling of certain points of sale”, indicates Isabelle Jaecques, Commercial Director at Eden Tour.

FlockEO, a pool of committed professionals

This partnership gives Eden Tour access to FlockEO’s directory of committed professionals: incoming agents, guides, accommodation managers, animal ecotourism consultants, tourism law lawyers, communication professionals, etc. This rich network offers Eden Tour agents the opportunity to meet, discuss and form partnerships with these professionals who are already committed, in order to implement their transition.

FlockEO also provides the employees of its new partner with its FlockeoCampus, training sessions organized monthly around sustainable development.

Learn about sustainable tourism

Also, in the continuity of its actions in favor of sustainable tourism, FlockEO and its parent company Murmuration3 have been offering since April 2023 workshops on two of the most recognized training courses in terms of awareness and generation of action plans: La Fresque du Climate and 2 Tons. FlockEO will thus be able to train Eden Tour employees in these workshops. “Companies are at the heart of our system. Raising their awareness increases a virtuous cycle tenfold and increases our chances of success,” says Julien Leroy, Environment Training Manager.

A replicable partnership to transform tourism

This support from one of the largest networks of French travel agencies demonstrates that the tourism sector is gradually taking stock of the urgency and beginning its transformation towards a more sustainable model.

In exchange, FlockEO benefits from the notoriety of the network and thus establishes its legitimacy as a key player in sustainable tourism! Eventually, FlockEO aims to conclude this partnership with a number of travel agency networks, like the one set up with Eden Tour by Sabri Trabelsi, Sales Director, who concludes “other discussions are underway!”
