Who We Are
The Association for ecology and tourism ECOTOURISM-2016, Ohrid is a team of smart, creative, and passionate activists. We are policy experts and community members supported by scientists, business leaders, lawyers and community members working hard to protect Ohrid Lake’s environment while developing sustainable tourism. The Association was founded in 2016 and its headquarters are in Ohrid, Macedonia.
Our work covers a wide range of topics, as we are active on local and national levels. We promote the protection of nature and the environment, by educating the public and governments on issues regarding the decision-making processes with the aim of improving the quality of life in the wider region of Ohrid Lake watershed. Our work also involves preparation of environmental impact assessments (undertaken over 100 studies) and intensive cooperation with scientific institutions across the country.
