Seville (EFE).- Fitur, with the collaboration of the Responsible Tourism Institute (ITR), has awarded the Andalusian pavilion at the Fair the “Sustainable Stand” award for measures such as LED lighting, monitoring of the carbon footprint or the use of reusable and organic materials.
This is how Fitur rewards the effort made in this year’s Andalusia exhibitor, designed in line with the 17 objectives of the UN 2030 Agenda.
In the award-winning pavilion, recycled and biodegradable materials have been used, local suppliers have been hired to reduce emissions from transport, barriers for people with functional diversity have been removed and information supports have been installed with technologies such as augmented reality or sensitive touch panels. .
100% LED lighting
Among the measures applied, it is found that the lighting of the whole exhibitor is made up of 100% LED equipment and access to drinking water from the Madrid supply network is facilitated, installing a fountain and distributing 5,000 units of glass bottles.
In addition, the carbon footprint is taken as an indicator of sustainability, to know the impact it has on the environment and identify the most polluting sources on which to act.
Sustainable materials have been used for the construction of the exhibitor and 75% of them will be used again in future exhibitors.
Similarly, the used canvas will be dismantled and donated to a non-profit association to be converted into household items.
In the same way, criteria of equality and universal access to information have been taken into account, eliminating barriers that limit the integration of people with functional, hearing or other diversities.
For this, adapted counters and brochures in Braille have been placed and technologies such as augmented reality, sensitive touch panels or magnetic loop for people with hearing disabilities have been used.
Opening of the Andalusian pavilion in Fitur to travelers
The Andalusian pavilion in Fitur opens this weekend to potential travelers on the occasion of the conferences aimed at the final public, for which it is transformed into a space that offers visitors various experiences, activities and multiple ways of consulting and accessing information about the destination.
In this way, there is an area dedicated to crafts, in collaboration with the Ministry of Employment, Business and Self-Employment, and activities are proposed by segments of the public, with an area for young people that offers NFT workshops or kayaking virtual, and a children’s area with thematic workshops for children.
