Between 2005 and 2015, ETE implemented a series of international medium-sized projects, mainly in Central and Eastern European countries. The main focus of these projects was sustainable tourism management. Through the participatory development of guidelines, planning tools and communication strategies the projects aimed at mainstreaming sustainable tourism development and its ecological, economic and social benefits amongst politicians, private tourism businesses, travellers and NGOs.

The projects encompassed a multitude of smaller and bigger activities that fostered the implementation of the concept of sustainable tourism.
