World Responsible Tourism Day

  • WTM World Responsible Tourism Day

    There is only one World Responsible Tourism Day (WRTD), marked on the final day at World Travel Market London.

    WRTD celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2016, and included seminars on responsible tourism held on a new feature stand during World Travel Market London.

    With support from the UNWTO, WTM World Responsible Tourism Day wants the travel industry to work together to:

    • Help drive change by educating more responsible behaviour with the travel and tourism industry and travelling public
    • Explore the issues of how countries and destinations are made more sustainable including case studies of best practices
    • Educate the marketplace and debate key environmental related issues to push the agenda and be a catalyst for change
    • Harness the influence of World Travel Market as an international business forum to encourage the industry to drive the responsible tourism agenda forward.

    We encourage and permit businesses which are actively engaged in promoting responsible tourism to use our WRTD logo, by applying to become a supporter.
