The Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria for Destinations has been designed to guide destination specialists, managers, communities, NGOs and businesses toward the steps that are needed to sustain the natural and cultural heritage of the destinations they serve, while attracting tourists and economically benefiting local communities and businesses. The draft version of the Destination Criteria is available for public consultation for the next two months.
The Global Sustainable Tourism Council and Sustainable Travel International invite all interested persons and organizations to comment on, suggest improvements to, and help to disseminate the Destination Criteria to as many stakeholders as possible.
The deadline for comments and suggested edits is June 2, 2012. Your considerations can be made here in English, French, Spanish and Mandarin. Click here for more information on the Criteria For Destinations.
Sustainable Travel International is proud to be the lead consultant on this exciting and timely initiative. Please feel free to forward this message to others who might be interested in participating.
