    Responsible Tourism: Community Based Tourism in Myanmar

    Around the Inle Lake, one of the most suggestive area of Myanmar, we are promoting our activities on responsible tourism. Our main actions are implemented in Samkar. Here, ICEI started a project on Community Based Tourism (CBT) two years ago.

    Thanks to our activities based on responsible toursim, we are supporting Samkar local communities as well as people from other villages of the area. We are working with them to create new turistic products aiming to wide and increase families’ incomes and thus involving all the communities of beneficiaries. Moreover, we promote the natural and cultural heritage of this area, through the valorization of its material and immaterial richness. In order to do so, we collaborate closely with many private bodies, public institutions and associations to put into practice new local policies to manage natural and cultural resources in a more participative and sustainable way.
    Listen directly to the protagonists of our projects!

  • solidarietà colomba nota icei


    The government experience that has just ended has not been positive for the Third Sector in general and for the world of Development Cooperation in particular.
    Together with an aggressive and indiscriminate rhetoric against the NGOs, identified as “guilty” of being accomplices of the traffickers of people operating in the Mediterranean, there has been also  the emptying of the foreseen funds for the cooperation and the growing uncertainty for the whole sector. The reform voted in the previous Legislature proceeds with heavy and guilty delays. There are still no implementing decrees that definitively establish the methods of transformation of thousands of associations, foundations and cooperatives involved in the reform.

    Anti-rumours to prevent hate speech

    Why preventing hate speech is so important? Because the way we communicate could strongly influence the way we relate with each other and because words could hurt.
    Within our projects on educational interventions, we promote the Anti-rumours Strategy supported by the Council of Europe. Enhancing the widespread of this approach means avoid to point an accusing finger at people using communicative dynamics potentially offensive: all of us could somehow ‘foment rumours’ and this happens because stereotypes and prejudices constantly influence our daily life. At the same time, by the way, we could all be victims of rumours

    Reforestation and awareness: fighting forest degradation in Mozambique

    Deforestation and forest degradation are among the main problems in Mozambique. This problem affects also in the District of Mocubela, in Zambezia, where we work with the FORESTE project. In fact, itinerant agriculture and the excessive exploitation of forest resources (including timber) in a non-sustainable way, together with uncontrolled forest fires, significantly reduce the availability of forest ecosystem goods and services in rural communities. Furthermore, the problem of deforestation strongly threatens biodiversity and causes an increase in greenhouse gas emissions.
