WTM Responsible Tourism Highlights


Picture1The World Travel Market (WTM) London’s Responsible Tourism Programme is an annual feature, started six years ago. 6 November was the WTM World Responsible Tourism Day (WRTD) 2013, which was marked not only at the WTM, but around the world with special events, communications and consumer promotions, demonstrating the industry’s determination to make a real difference.

This year’s responsible tourism programme focussed on five key issues, facing not just the travel and tourism industry, but businesses and countries globally: water scarcity, child protection, climate change, accessible tourism and volunteering.
