10 YEAR COUNTDOWN PROGRAM
The 10 Year Countdown was the first initiative to promote awareness of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. Since 2020 the founders of EXA Group Canada have been planning and executing sustainability actions due to the 10 Year Countdown.
The program aims to bring quality information and rural tourism and community-based tourism knowledge to rural communities in Nova Scotia. EXA Group Canada carried out from April 2021 to January 2022 trips to 45 communities in Nova Scotia and assisted three farms with the technical visit and the development of the solutions report.
The 10 Year Countdown reached more than 10 thousand people with the information on YouTube, through rural tourism classes or the ContaTour podcast. The program created artistic experience solutions during times of severe social restrictions and helped people with online activity solutions, promoting well-being for mental health.
In 2022, EXA Group Canada will expand the promotion of tourism knowledge and education with the 10 Year Countdown program and aims to reach more people and encourage sustainable tourism in rural communities in Nova Scotia.
