The Community Based Tourism Network of Ceará “ REDE TUCUM Â

On 13th of May, from 21h30min, will be present in the Kukukaya club, the Community Based Tourism Network of Ceará “ REDE TUCUM.. This articulation counts 12 communities of Ceará State: Tatajuba (Camocim), Curral velho (Acaraú), Caetanos de cima  (Amontada), Flecheiras (Trairí), Jenipapo-Kanindé  (Aquiraz), Batoque (Aquiraz), Prainha do Canto Verde (Beberibe), Assentamento Coqueirinho (Fortim), Ponta Grossa  (Icapuí), Tremembé (Icapuí), Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra  (MST-Fortaleza) e Conjunto Palmeiras (Fortaleza).

TUCUM’s goal is to strengthen and give visibility to the experiences of community based tourism developed into Ceara. The communities, through this articulation, receive training, improve its infrastructure, expand its possibilities for found out resources and work together for a marketing strategy, expanding thus the ability of communities to offer tourist services. In this perspective, the TUCUM network put together communities, that are already part of national tours, and international community based networks – as Prainha do Canto Verde (Beberibe) and Ponta Grossa (Icapuí). Recently they have started to practise it in a more planned way. This initiative originates from communities perception that they was not enough able to criticize the conventional tourism as model that generate a huge socio-spatial segregation, concentration of capitals and social problems.  The community based tourism wants to build another kind of logic and perspective. The community based tourism would like to set against the convencional tourism, representing an alternative income for the community, helping the local populations to have an effective control over its development and management, and to be responsible for infrastructure and tourism services. The practice of the community based tourism follows principles such as ethics attitude between native people (hosts) and tourists (guests), equitable distribution of income, establishment of community funds and valorisation of local production, culture and local identities. The event is part of the program of the II International Conference on Sustainable Tourism (SITS),  organized by the Institute Terramar and the Forum in Defense of Coastal Zone of Ceara, from the 12th to the 15th of May, in the Condominio Espiritual Uirapuru (CEU). The launch event,  reserved for the  guests, will be the occasion to present the TUCUM network and its communities. In  agenda, also the  presentation of the book “Indigenous Ecotourism” of Luíndia Azevedo, the photographic exhibition “The beach´s being” by Águeda Coelho, and the musical representation of banda Cumpadre Barbosa and Cumadres.  During this events, will be introduce five tours organised by the community based tourism network TUCUM (In the annex will found the complete roadmaps).  PRESENTATION: The Community Based Tourism Network of Ceará “ REDE TUCUM
