Eco-Friendly travelers like green education: When you pick an Eco-Friendly vacation the world is your classroom. All green travel is a learning experience. Education related green travel divides into two types: One has limited use of travel and centers around a particular place or campus where participants come from all around the globe to learn. The other involves traveling during the program. Such as tours with a specific theme. Most consist of lecturers given by professors, curators, and other experts.
