The UN One Planet Sustainable Tourism Programme, a Partner of LT&C, on World Environment Day, released the One Planet Vision for a Responsible Recovery of Tourism providing strategic guidance for the recovery of the tourism sector in line with UNWTO priorities.
To inspire governments and the private sector to recover better, the Programme now is inviting stakeholders which are leading by example to share their initiatives for a responsible recovery in order to transform “Vision into Action”.
They are looking for initiatives that:
- Focus on one or more of the lines of action recommended in the Vision
- Show how implementation of the lines of action is possible
- Are strategic to accelerate sustainability in tourism as they are rooted in measurement
- Provide open source or free to use content for other stakeholders to be inspired, replicate and scale-up
Dissemination of selected initiatives will take place following a phased approach through UNWTO and One Planet social media.
To participate, please fill in this survey as soon as possible and no later than 15 July 2020 (1st intake): https://www.unwto.org/covid-19-oneplanet-responsible-recovery-initiatives
In line with the priorities outlined in the UNWTO Global Guidelines to Restart Tourism, this vision aims to support the development and implementation of recovery plans which contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. As such, the vision recommends six lines of action to guide a responsible tourism recovery for people, planet and prosperity, namely public health, social inclusion, biodiversity conservation, climate action, circular economy and governance and finance.
LT&C encourages its members, which have provided LT&C-Examples of tourism supporting the Biodiversity SDGs 14 and 15 to participate and contribute with their specific cases.
