In Kamchatka, within the framework of the tourist forum "Far East - Winter of Discoveries", the problems of sustainable tourism were discussed. In particular, the questions concerned the development of the sectoral infrastructure, the regulation of anthropogenic load on natural territories and the provision of the sphere with qualified personnel.

As the head of the committee for the development of sustainable tourism of the Russian Union of Tourism Industry (PCT) Victoria Saar noted, during the pandemic, many tourists faced the unavailability of the market on the part of the tourist infrastructure and the level of service. To this, in some cases, pollution of natural areas was added, and all together entailed partly negative feedback from the rest.

At the same time, according to Victoria Saar, by 2023, 25% of regions should be involved in domestic tourism. It is precisely this - the development of tourism in the country's territories - that the PCT profile committee created in 2020 is engaged in.

The parties also discussed the possible impact of tourists on the natural area. The Volcanoes of Kamchatka Natural Park together with the Tri Volcano Park company are planning to calculate such risks. This work will be carried out before the creation of a year-round resort: only after that the investors will start construction, said Lyubov Timofeeva, director of the Volcanoes of Kamchatka Nature Park.

Vladimir Cherepanov, creative director of POWER, co-author of the project to create a tourist and recreational cluster "Mezhdurechensk", shared his positive experience in creating a sustainable development model. The residents of the city of Mezhdurechensk were involved in the development of the "Taiga Civilization" project: during a brainstorming session with the public, it was possible to create an interesting tourist product with a "fashion" for the taiga. And only after that, experts joined the development of the project: from economists to architects.

Also at the forum, which is being held as part of the Beringia-2021 festival, they plan to discuss issues of ecotourism, the creation of new investment sites for tourism infrastructure. The second day of the forum will be devoted to the development of gastronomic, sports and extreme tourism in the Far East. You can join the event both in person and online. You can get acquainted with the program of the event, as well as watch the forum live on the website forumkamchatka.ru.  

The event was organized by the relevant ministries of the Kamchatka Territory. The sites are supported by the Roscongress Foundation and ANO ASI, the general partner of the Three Volcanoes Park. Information partners: CongressTime magazine and EastRussia news agency.
