It is with huge contentment that I announce the 2nd year anniversary of the Views On Tourism Project this month.
What a fantastic journey it has been to live in Bangladesh from 2007 to 2010, share valuable tourism knowledge and encourage the emerging sustainable tourism movement in Bangladesh and South Asia. Although I moved back to Denmark the Views On Tourism Project is still growing and you, my reader, can take a huge part of the credit.
The Views On Tourism blog provides knowledge and inspiration for the Bangladeshi tourism sector, nearby South Asian countries, developing countries or destinations facing similar challenges. With an ever growing number of visitors from up to 120 countries in one single month, the blog has just passed a total of 100.000 visitors.
The Views On Tourism network and discussion group unite the sustainable tourism stakeholders related to Bangladesh and South Asia. It is simply fantastic to witness the constant growth of skilled members, intensifying lively interaction and visionary discussions.
This is indeed interesting times to experience the growing sustainable tourism movement in Bangladesh and South Asia and I am eager to play my part in this process. Increased local commitment and long-term sustainable initiatives are still required in the future, but there is no doubt that if the tourism stakeholders in Bangladesh and South Asia unite they have the resources, knowledge and visions to succeed.
Please join the movement too and use the Views On Tourism Project when increasing knowledge, sharing best practice, spreading information, making comments, announcing events, starting discussions, network and cooperate. Together we can achieve a sustainable future!
I wish you a happy new year in 2011.
Yours faithfully Majbritt Thomsen
