6. Overall Conclusion

A group as big and diverse as tourists on Texel that do so many diverse activities is hard to make sustainable. It would be necessary to make all the activities they do and all the places they visit energy efficient. The only way to do this is to start with the core, the mind-set of people. Tourists need to be aware of sustainability. The answer to this is letting them experience the value of using local products.

On Texel a lot of companies are already sustainable and using local products, this should only be more visible to tourists so that they will notice and take this information back home. The visualisation of local use will be realised by making a digital cycling app showing all sustainable companies and connections between producers and sellers. Hopefully they will continue a bit of this local-use lifestyle in their everyday lives.
