Ecotourism Concept in the Light of Cultural Diversity and Regional Development
AbstractThe space, location, possibilities, needs, scarcity of goods, technologies, destination and scope are important in Culture. In this article, the authors begin from the hypothesis: how culture is linked to environment and ecology? As a result, the key ideas of the work presuppose that this link (Ecotourism) defines a contribution to mutual understanding and respect between peoples and societies, a vehicle for individual and collective fulfillment, a user of the cultural heritage of mankind and contributor to its enhancement, a beneficial activity for host countries and the obligations of communities and stakeholders interested in tourism development. As a research tool, the authors used the library and its resources as well as specialized reference books, reports, catalogues and magazines; the communication facilities and specialty languages were also used. As regards the methods, the authors used the indirect documentation method, i.e. the comparative and interpretive method. Finally, the main expectations following the work are certain proposals in relation to promoting heritage conservation and environment sustainability, so as to create an intellectually challenging and stimulating environment and provide educational benefits to local community. Such objectives are also targeted by the Republic of Moldova.
