We visit Rimini, one of Italy’s major coastal resorts to find how the town and surrounding areas are taking a new sustainable approach to tourism. Environmental economist and advisor to the municipality, Anna Montini, explains how tourism is a vital part of the economy, but has caused environmental and social problems with the sheer volume of visitors. The film explores several local examples of ‘best practice’ which together are part of the region’s policy to make its vital tourism industry more sustainable: recycling schemes to reduce waste; cycle lanes to reduce traffic; nearby coastal habitat restoration at the mouth of the River Conca and a beach resort, Bagno Giulia, which features renewable energy and water recycling.
