There are a few remaining places for the South Africa House Conference on Responsible Tourism taking place on 21 June. To attend please email Hugh Felton at email@example.com otherwise you can just take a look to what is going on.
TOURISM – TAKING RESPONSIBILITY, A PROGRESS UPDATE AND A LOOK TO THE FUTURE
South Africa adopted a Responsible Tourism approach in its 1996 White Paper on the Development & Promotion of Tourism. This marked a step change in the way in which tourism is understood, focussing on what tourism could contribute to the new South Africa. Its international leadership was recognised in the 2002 Cape Town Declaration on Responsible Tourism in Destinations which has been very influential over the last ten years in encouraging stakeholders around the world to take responsibility for making tourism more sustainable and using tourism to make “better places for people to live in, better places for people to visit”, in that order.
At this landmark one day conference, speakers will reflect on progress since 2002 and declare their priorities for Responsible Tourism over the next 10 years. There will be a legacy website with all the presentations and outcomes of the conference and a special edition of Progress in Responsible Tourism published in July.
