UNIGREEN - X MARKS THE GREEN SPOT

The uniqueness of the UniGreen project is pursuing accessibility to nature. The project has developed accessible eco-tourism products and services for all kinds of travellers, including those with disabilities.

An inclusive nature walk

This EU environment project sets out to bolster nature tourism in a sustainable way and make nature more accessible in Latvia and Lithuania. UniGreen offers new nature tourism activities, through a combination of nature conservation awareness-raising actions as well as the creation of more than 80 walking trails through northern Lithuania. These trails are compiled in a UniGreen Trail Guidebook (with audio guides available in LV, LT and EN). A unique aspect of these trails is an emphasis on inclusion and accessibility; some of the trails have specific options for travellers with disabilities.
