CROSSDEV: A free online lecture with the International Social Tourism Organisation
On June the 24th Charles Etienne Belanger Director of ISTO - International Social Tourism Organisation - will hold a lecture to introduce Social Tourism as post pandemic sustainable recovery opportunity.
“Fair and sustainable tourism for all: an option for post-COVID recovery”
In the current situation we need to rethink tourism and reintegrate it into a much broader societal vision! We need to rehabilitate this essential notion of "holidays". One that prioritizes the well-being of each individual, that seeks sustainability in its investments, that respects the environment and the territories, that encourages encounters between hosts and guests, that strives for a fair and equitable distribution of economic growth and that favours local employment. In short, we need to master and imagine the tourism of tomorrow, so that it becomes "reasoned". It is in this sense that the International Social Tourism Organization (ISTO) proposes an approach that is based on the 5 pillars of ISTO's DNA - accessibility, quality of life, solidarity, fair business and the environment - and that links them to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The International Social Tourism Organisation is an Associated Partner of the CROSSDEV project.
