Adopt the GSTC Destination Criteria
Public sector tourism policy-makers and destination managers throughout the world turn to the GSTC Destination Criteria for guidance in developing policy, raising awareness and conducting training, and for use as a framework for national or localized sustainability standards. GSTC urges policy-makers and destination managers to pledge to adhere to the GSTC Destination Criteria.
The Criteria were developed based on core concepts of sustainable tourism developed in 2005 by UNWTO and further developed by a highly inclusive, global input and development process.
Proclaim your commitment as a nation, province, municipality, or destination to truly sustainable policies and practices.
