I have no doubt that tourism activity is one of the main sectors affected by the crisis unleashed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The open scenario in our sector and that of environmental education presents us with challenges never before imagined. It allows us to let our imagination run wild and rethink what kind of tourism we want … if we dream of seeing an opportunity at this historic moment and not the opposite.
The priority in the immediate term is to carry out actions to overcome the health crisis. But I think we should be patient, share and see how what is happening is evolving.
I think the most important thing is that the entire tourist community reflects on how it works so that the day after it begins to become healthier for the planet, workers and entrepreneurs, like our small project located in the Aragonese Pyrenees, and more than ever now in the Natural Park of the Western Valleys, from where we want to launch our proposal and our commitment to a sustainable way of living the mountains, nature, fauna, flora, oral tradition, photography, history, heritage and coexistence with the main actors of this wild territory.
If you do not know us, I invite you to do it through our blog, where we are gradually publishing our impressions, our vision of things from this magical Pyrenees, and also the reflections that we pose day by day around the world we want to live.
Welcome to the Mirador del Pirineo, under the watchful eyes of Ojos Pirenaicos
