Abstract

Ecological education is a complex process which not only covers events, but also points out the importance of developing a society as a whole. In this work authors also analyse ecological education in Croatia, specially in Istria, which represents the most developed tourist region of Croatia. Based on that research, a notion to implement ecological education in the national education system is being promoted - starting from kindergarden and up to college level. Survey research shows results of respondents - tourists during the year 2015, when they visited Istria, their preferences regarding organic food and the satisfaction of the offer. A survey research of the local population was also performed in order to assess their involvement in development of tourism programs of Poreč destination.
