Earlier in February, the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) in partnership with Sustainable Travel International hosted a live virtual educational presentation with over 300 registrations from around the world. The webinar was presented by Dr. Kelly Bricker, Chair of the GSTC Board, as well as Dr. Louise Twining-Ward and Jeremy Sampson from Sustainable Travel International.
Some of the attendees included Kuoni Travel, The Nature Conservancy, PATA, Royal Caribbean, Rainforest Alliance, Sabre Holdings, and numerous ministries of tourism and regional tourism organizations.
During the 60-minute interactive gathering, Lara Velasco of Turismo Lanzarote and Dr. Lars Lindkvist of Kenya’s Mara Naboisho Conservancy showcased their “Early Adopter” experience –the first initiative in the Destination Partnership Program.
This webinar was the first held in a series of informational programs to put sustainability efforts in the spotlight. For those who couldn’t attend, you can download slides here and reply the video recording.
