Interested in Training Options for Your Destination or Organization?

Thousands of tourism professionals from across the industry, representing a wide range of destinations and organizations, have been part of our training program. In addition to our regular online and in-person training offers, the GSTC Sustainable Tourism Training Program (STTP) offers private or custom training options catering to the specific requirements of destination partners and industry organizations – from half-day introductory sessions to week-long extensive training, from tailored online courses to a ‘blended’ training program.

Global Authority on Sustainable Tourism

The Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) was established by UN agencies together with NGOs and the private sector to act as an independent organization. It is now playing a critical role as the leading global authority in providing guidance for the development and management of sustainability practices in travel and tourism. Based on the GSTC’s extensive knowledge base, the STTP offers both global and regional perspectives relevant to tourism industry stakeholders at various stages of sustainability adoption and development.

From Words to Actions, to Long-Term Impacts

The objective of the GSTC STTP is not to offer a one-time exercise of reviewing what should be done; rather, we will work with you towards tangible and meaningful goals, focusing on the long-term success of your destination’s sustainable tourism development and on-going management practices.
