Working with several local partners in Poros and Trozinia-Methana, Greece, Project Resound and its volunteer designers presented Éla. This fully-branded, sustainable tourism association is an independent network connecting mindful travelers, local service providers, and the community. In a final presentation to community members including concerned citizens, business owners, and government officials, the volunteers described a plan of implementation for this new system and unveiled potential branding.

In collaboration with local organizations in Poros and Troizinia-Methana, Greece, Project Resound aimed to develop a more sustainable model of tourism for the region.
Tourism accounts for 25% of jobs in Greece and is a great way for local communities to share their culture and make a living. Yet, tourism can also negatively impact the environment, local culture, and the people living in popular destinations.
With a more sustainable tourism model, this Greek region will be able to share their culture and home with less impact on the environment and have more stable sources of income. Tourists will enjoy unique experiences over the course of a longer stay.

DEVELOP & DELIVER
An independent network of businesses, local organizations, and concerned citizens was deemed the key piece in connecting mindful/sustainable travelers, the community, and local service providers. The independent network could be branded to be called Éla — come join us in Greek.
As the independent network becomes more established in the community, it will also require less effort to maintain. Over the course of the next five years, Project Resound will continue to offer support and resources to accomplish this growth plan.
Éla is a Greek word that means 'come join us.' It is used in everyday speech and has a simple English pronunciation (el-la). These factors make it a great way to brand the independent tourism network for this region.
