#Sustainable tourism. What about?
Sustainable tourism Sustainable tourism is about how people and nature are dealt with. Has a holiday park not been placed in a vulnerable area? Are solar panels installed? Do people from the area work in the resort? Sustainable tourism always ensures that the ecological footprint is as small as possible. Nature tourism Nature tourism aims to be in nature or to deal with it well. Think for example of a safari in Africa, mountaineering in the Alps or diving in the Mediterranean. But the term nature tourism does not say anything about how responsible the activities are. Tourism as nature protection Tourism sometimes has adverse effects on nature. But it can also be a way to protect nature. If nature tourism becomes a source of income for the local population, a broader base of support is created to cherish nature. In addition, people can earn their money with nature-friendly activities in tourism. Think about the climate The choice of your holiday makes a lot for the climate. A two-week sun holiday to Bali gives an emission of more than 16,000 kg of CO2 for four people. That is as much emissions as heating your home for four years. Reduce emissions A special tool provides insight into the CO2 emissions of transport, accommodation and activities during your holiday. With most holidays, the distance to the destination and the choice of transport determine the climate impact. Do you travel within Europe? Then a journey by train or bus is the climate friendliest choice. In distant air travel, a vacation closer to home is always better for the climate. Do you really want to be completely climate neutral? Then opt for a cycling or walking holiday. That also saves a lot of airport or traffic jam stress. And it is a lot cheaper too.

#Tourism ‘has crucial role’ propelling #global sustainability debate
Tourism has a crucial role to play in propelling the global debate around sustainability but is too often “absent” from the debate, a nature-based tourism initiative  says. The Long Run – which helps its members protect more than 12 million acres of “ecologically important areas” – released its annual report this month. Its chairman Jochen Zeitz says that tourism does not often take the lead in global debates around issues like climate change and “environmental degradation”. But he thinks it can have a big impact on the way businesses across the world deal with those issues. Traveling transforms lives from people “Tourism has a unique opportunity to lead the way,” said Zeitz, a former chief executive at sportswear firm Puma. “The sector represents 9.8% of the world’s GDP, one in 11 jobs, and will concern 1.8 billion travellers by 2030. “Travelling transforms lives; by exposing people to new experiences and cultures, it increases understanding and opens minds. If done right, it can drive sustainable development and significantly contribute to the delivery of the world’s Sustainable Development Goals by helping to protect nature, improve livelihoods and preserve cultural identities. Despite all this, the tourism sector is noticeably absent from global sustainability debates. The United Nations The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are a list of 17 goals – with 169 targets between them – that it hopes countries around the globe can introduce by 2030 in international agreement. It includes subjects ranging from hunger, health and education to climate, equality and innovation. The Long Run was founded in 2009 to support eco-sensitive tourism ventures as they sought to develop businesses in tune with the protection of the landscapes in which they operate. It now has more than 40 members which look after a combined 12 million acres – an area larger than the size of Switzerland. Its members have invested over US$10 million in conservation and local communities and employed more than 3,700 people. Its sites include Cottar’s, a 1920’s Safari Camp in Kenya’s Maasai Mara, Brazil’s Sinal do Vale biosphere reserve, and hiking destination Comrie Croft in Perthshire, Scotland. The Long Run's vision “The Long Run’s vision is that of a world in which business, nature and people are harmoniously working together for a sustainable future,” Zeitz added. “It demonstrates what the private sector can achieve and the positive impact it can have on conservation and communities around the world. Society, and business especially, must embrace its responsibility towards the future of this planet.” https://www.whatsorb.com/category/travel
