About WTM WRTD

What is responsible tourism?

In 2002, 280 representatives from all sectors of tourism from 20 countries attended the Cape Town Conference on Responsible Tourism in Destinations, preceding the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg. A declaration on responsible tourism was agreed.  

 


Cape Town Declaration


The 2002 Cape Town declaration agreed that responsible tourism:

  • minimises negative economic, environmental a

    nd social impacts
  • generates greater economic benefits for local people and enhances the well being of host communities; improves working conditions and access to the industry
  • involves local people in decisions that affect their lives and life chances
  • makes positive contributions to the conservation of natural  and cultural heritage embracing diversity

  • provides more enjoyable experiences for tourists through more meaningful connections with local people, and a greater understa

    nding of local cultural, social and environmental issues
  • provides access for physically challenged people
  • is culturally sensitive, encourages respect between tourists and hosts, and builds local pride and confidence

WTM has four realistic objectives for this day of action.

  • WTM WRTD, with support from the UNWTO wants the 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
