To celebrate World Tourism Day we are re-opening our Greenlife Fund for 2019 applications. Our fund was designed to support a sustainable tourism innovation associated with any of the walking or cycling routes that we work with.
At FrancigenaWays.com we are passionate about all of the routes we walk and cycle across and want to support the environments of the trails.
Each year we allocate €1,500 to a responsible travel project that contributes to the local economy and inspires others to be mindful when walking the trails. In addition to the funding we provide marketing and promotional support, travel logistics help and time to consult with our expert travel team.
For 2017 and 2018 we supported the Mossy Earth replanting initiatives in both Ireland and Portugal. Together we have helped to replant thousands of trees across both regions.
In 2016 we used the Greenlife Fund to support the Burren Way Trail Wardens project in Ireland. It was designed to train wardens that now help to maintain and manage this fantastic walking trail in Ireland.
Before that we sponsored A Greener Future who embarked on a clean the Camino trek along the Portuguese Coastal Way. Their great Camino clean-up led to the collection of over 6,000 pieces of litter along the trail.
To continue enjoying the natural beauty, the culture and the places that we visit it is important that we support initiates that lead to more responsible travel. With the Greenlife Fund dedicating support to projects each year we feel that we can continue to support the routes that we walk and cycle across.
If you would like to apply for the Greenlife Fund or know of a worthwhile project that we could support we would love to hear from you. Learn more about the submission guidelines and the Greenlife Fund criteria here.
