Our mission is to protect and promote the amazing cultural heritage of Romania through a new responsible and healthy tourism network designated to conserve biodiversity and highlight customs and traditions. Our programs will specifically target partners, volunteers or sponsors, interested in sustaining our team’s efforts and actions for future development of Romania’s eco-touristic extraordinary potential. These programs will be designed according to the sustainable tourism principles, and will focus on: open access to the real cultural identity of local communities, preservation and revival of the local customs, traditional crafts and arts, outdoor activities, travel exploration, cultural events and environmental friendly educational workshops.
Descult (transl. barefoot) intends to launch and grow the first ecological – cultural touristic network in Eastern Europe - Environmental & Cultural Conservation Camps “Dacian Roots”. This network will facilitate access to new travelling destinations for everybody interested in responsible, eco-friendly, and community based tourism.
