The development of tourism, in addition to numerous benefits, necessarily brings with it certain consequences such as a significantly increased volume of waste left by tourists to hosts, increased consumption of water, detergents, spatial usurpation and a number of other undesirable consequences. Tourism in Croatia generates almost 20 percent of GDP and in this respect represents a significant economic branch. With higher sales of domestic food in tourism, furniture and other inputs, tourism would generate the development of certain industries that certainly have room for growth. When we talk about tourism in protected areas, we must expect strong growth with great caution. With its 8 national parks and 11 nature parks, Croatia is an “oasis” of Europe. Plitvice Lakes National Park is, along with Dubrovnik, the strongest Croatian brand. However, there are other national parks such as NP Krka, NP Brijuni and NP Mljet, which indicate the number of visitors from year to year that Croatia, except for the beautiful sea and beaches, is widely recognized for its protected areas. Continental parks each year show a growing interest in visiting, both locals and world visitors. After the introduction, a presentation on the topic of protection of natural areas through responsible tourism development is planned, which will be held by Izidora Marković Vukadin from the Institute of Tourism. Such points are the basis for the development of continental tourism, and since for some Parks this is just the beginning, it is the right time to point out the necessary model of sustainable tourism development that includes environmental care, cooperation with local producers and promotion of natural and cultural heritage. Plitvice Lakes National Park on Tuesday, May 14.05.2019, XNUMX. at the Hotel Jezero, organizes the Conference “Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas of the Republic of Croatia”, which will host experts in the field of sustainable tourism. Two panel discussions will follow the conference. Gari Cappelli, Tomislav Ćorić, Tomislav Kovačević and Assistant Minister of Culture Davor Trupković will take part in the first panel discussion entitled “Framework for the Development of Sustainable Tourism”. The second panel discussion “Sustainable tourism in practice” will be attended by Assistant Minister of Environment and Energy Igor Kreitmeyer, Dean of the Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality from Opatija Dora Smolčić Jurdana, FEEL IQM owner Đurđica Šimičić and Deana Stipanović, Corporate Affairs Director Valamar Rilamar dd Applications for the conference are still open for a short time via email.
