 OUR STORY 

About Us 

Fenit is Ireland’s only village, town or city with the sustainable development goals icon in our village sign. We are committed to SDG 17 Partnership and collaborate to deliver the best outcomes for our community and our guests. We are committed to the principles and priorities of the SDGs, and we recognise that tourism is changing. We welcome this change and, as tourism providers in Fenit, commit to taking full account of the past, current, and future economic, social, and environmental impacts, while addressing the needs of visitors, industry, the environment and our local communities. We help to drive change across our community through awareness-raising, education, and practice in partnership with our local community. We are working together in Fenit to plan and manage tourism to support and sustain job creation, promote social inclusion, protect our natural, cultural and maritime heritage, conserve and regenerate biodiversity on land and at sea, generate sustainable livelihoods and improve human wellbeing. Our tourism providers run an open seminar series across the year open to the community and visitors on a variety of sustainable development topics.  

Our Service Partners and MICE Tourism 

The MICE tourism market is a particularly good fit for Fenit. As a collaborative of small enterprises, we collectively have a lot to offer mice visitors and can scale our offer appropriate to the carrying capacity of the village.  We partner with each other and our clients (SDG 17: Partnership for the Goals) to ensure Fenit’s tourism offer is sustainable and a positive addition to our social, economic and environmental development while providing a fresh tourism experience.  

 

Our Website, Sustainable Development and Digital Accessibility.  

Sustainable development asks us to leave no one behind, including online and be responsible for our consumption and production (SDG12). Digital products can waste a lot of energy. If the internet was a country, it would be the 4th largest polluter (Freitag et al. 2021).  By following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines we remove barriers to content (SDG 10 Reduced Inequalities) and use fewer resources. We have a clear, crisp, simple design and accessible content that makes this website experience better for everyone.   

The UNESCO Chair MTU is supporting this initiative as part of the Chair remit on sustainable development and MTUs commitment to regional development.
