Your donation to the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) will help our organization promote sustainable tourism practices throughout the world.
Globally, tourism is growing. That means we must all do our part to more vigorously prevent or minimize the negative impacts of tourism while enhancing the positive impacts. GSTC plays a vital role in the sustainable tourism global movement, and your support is essential to its existence. 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.
Sustainability in travel and tourism refers to environmental factors -- including carbon emissions and climate change, fresh-water management, wildlife protection, and more -- plus social responsibility – including poverty reduction, cultural heritage preservation, the fight against child trafficking and sex tourism, and much more.
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. Thank you for your support!
