The United Nations has declared 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development (#IY2017). The International Year aims to raise awareness on the contribution of sustainable tourism to development among decision-makers and the public, while mobilizing all stakeholders to work together in making tourism a catalyst for positive change.
CABI is delighted to be a ‘Friend’ of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.
Since the 1970s, CABI has been covering the global literature on travel, tourism, leisure, recreation, sport, hospitality and culture. CABI offers unique resources supporting research and learning; collating information not just from specialist journals and books in the leisure and tourism fields, but also all relevant material from CABI’s wider coverage in rural development, health, economics and the environment.
The Leisure Tourism internet resource is the complete information service covering leisure, recreation, sport, hospitality, tourism and culture. We also publish a wide range of books covering all aspects of leisure and tourism.
Tourism and Social Justice Symposium
CABI and London South Bank University, are hosting a Tourism and Social Justice Symposium, Wednesday 25 January 2017, 1-7pm, at London South Bank University.
The symposium will consider issues of equity and fairness in urban and rural destinations and in developed and developing countries; how destination populations can fight back; how specialists such as unions and scientists can speak for those without a voice; and how tourism can be a force for good if managed properly and with foresight.
We hope you can join us!
