WTM World Responsible Tourism Programme - 11/11/09

It is time again for one of the most important events for the Responsible Tourism industry: The World Travel Market Responsible Tourism day. For all of you who are participating in the development of Responsible Tourism or are a professional within this industry, this day is a must for your busy calendars.

WTM World Responsible Tourism Day, the only global day of action of its kind, is being supported by the UNWTO and leading industry associations. The day is vital – for business, for profitability and for our planet. It means taking care of a world that we seek to promote, preserving our heritage and cultures and taking into account the views and needs of local communities.

WTM WRTD 2008 was a huge success attracting an impressive 1,565 participants to the challenging and thought provoking programme. Click here to read more.

Travel and tourism companies and organisations in the world are under increasing pressure to work more responsibly.

WTM World Responsible Tourism Day is your chance to get involved and debate the issues.

Hopefully I will see you there.
