Solidarity tourism, what is it ?
School Exchanges by SkypeWithin the framework of the “International Solidarity” project set up by the Club for UNESCO and its partners, a first exchange on Skype occurred on January 30th 2017 between pupils from the school of Oussouye (Senegal) and Raymond Boucher (La Rochelle).The very enthusiastic pupils had the opportunity to introduce themselves. Various exchanges on Skype are planned between the other grades of both schools. These moments of discussion were organized to enable pupils to talk about their experience within the “Coastal and fluvial patrimonial navigations” project, an educational tool that aims to make children aware of environment and heritage from the Charente coastline and Basse-Casamance.

The commitments of responsible traveler
The traveler that chooses this form of tourism is a responsible consumer. This person is aware of his attitude and his acts, which could be a development factor and a destabilizing element for host peoples.
Consequently, the traveler commits himself to :
- Avoiding any attitude and intervention that could turn the social, cultural and ecological balances of communities upside down.
- Refraining from any donation and intervention on the place that wouldn’t be supervised by the authorities of host communities.
The Club for UNESCO of La Rochelle is behind the research mission in Basse-Casamance carried out at request and in collaboration with local partners from 10th to 22nd February 2013.
- The exploration objective of this mission was the implementation of many and varied projects:
