It was with much joy, that I was a guest speaker on the 21th June 2010.
My topic was ‘Prospect of Sustainable Tourism in Bangladesh’ and the event was co-hosted by United International University (UIU) and Junior Chamber International (JCI – ICIB is the Bangladeshi wing). The seminar was professional arranged and the audience quite big with a good mix of eager UIU students, JCIB members, key tourism stakeholders and Views On Tourism network members. As I am leaving Bangladesh just a few days after this presentation, it was a perfect farewell to the future and present Bangladeshi tourism stakeholders.
I started the Views On Tourism Project in 2008 to encourage a sustainable tourism movement in Bangladesh through knowledge and network. I am convinced that each individual can make an impact in the society through his/her actions and that the local people with visions and resources have an obligation to lead a positive development. Reading about JCI visions – I felt very comfortable in the company of the JCIB members. According the international website JCI is a membership-based nonprofit organization of 200,000 young people ages 18 to 40 in 5,000 communities and more than 100 countries around the world.
Each JCI Member shares the belief that in order to create lasting positive change, we must improve ourselves and the world around us. They seek targeted solutions to the unique problems in our communities to build a better world, creating global impact.
Visit the JCI website if you want to know more.
The online Views On Tourism Project awareness include more than 55.000 blog readers and reached 324 network members so far. This proves to me that sustainable tourism has a future – also in Bangladesh. The Views On Tourism Project has furthermore showed its potential to become an online communication platform for a sustainable tourism movement in Bangladesh and South Asia. To further strengthen this sustainable tourism movement though, will require increased local commitment and long-term sustainable initiatives. But there is no doubt in my heart that if the tourism stakeholders in Bangladeshi and South Asia unite they have the resources, knowledge and visions to succeed. I will continue to manage the basic Views On Tourism services from Denmark and also share a network comment and a blog article once in a while. I hope to experience the growth of an active Bangladeshi grass-root tourism movement through the free of cost Views On Tourism services.
If you are not a Views On Tourism group member, I encourage you to read the group introduction and consider joining this online sustainable tourism network. Go to The Views On Tourism network group introduction .
