Abstract

Sustainability tends to ensure the future revenue of local community through the preservation and proper exploitation of resources. However, these are a part of the collective heritage and so are not freely available. This leads to a economic gap-disadvantage for private subjects involved in sustainability strategy, which can be overcome by a system of relationships between public and private subjects, able to spread the ?cost? of sustainability beyond the study area and to optimize the use of resources. A method, which involves public and private measures based on support and relationships between all subjects, is proposed and explained, also using some layers which show the business phases divided-allocated between the involved subjects. The concepts are often related to the results of a questionnaire-based survey of local tourism entrepreneurs which was carried out in some small villages in Bulgaria, Macedonia and Serbia.
