2016 is ending, today is your last chance to support the GSTC this year

Published on : Saturday, December 31, 2016

unnamed43-300x1692016 is now ending and 2017, the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development is about to begin. Join us now and donate to promote sustainable tourism practices throughout the world.

 

What is sustainable tourism? Sustainability in tourism goes beyond “green” tourism. Sure, it includes environmental factors — including carbon emissions and climate change, fresh-water management, wildlife protection, and more – but it also includes social responsibility – including poverty reduction, cultural heritage preservation, the fight against child trafficking and sex tourism, and much more. GSTC’s programs promote high quality sustainable tourism programs around the world so everyone benefits from tourism.

 
GSTC is a mostly volunteer network, and all paid staff positions are filled by altruistic tourism professionals who are willing to provide their expertise at well-below market rates.

 
This means that your financial support is carefully and conscientiously applied to the important work done by GSTC throughout the world in teaching and applying standards for sustainable development and practices, often allowing us to make impacts in the developing world where our work is not always funded.

 
With a donation as small as $35, you will be joining a community of individuals, businesses, and public authorities that seeks to change the way that we manage travel now and in the future. Please act now to support this important work.
