ECO-INNOVATION IN RURAL AREAS - eco solutions in the rural tourism sector as drivers of regional development
The lecture is devoted to the determinants of rural development, in particular eco-innovations, which are currently a key element in the light of the postulates of sustainable development. The lecture answers the question of what eco-innovations are, and the given examples of eco-innovations will show their application. Eco-innovative solutions in Poland are very popular in the tourism sector in rural areas and not only. The construction of eco-hotels and eco-agritourism has additional possibilities of financial support from the European Funds, which makes the “eco” trend very popular among entrepreneurs in the sector.
