News Press Release: TOURISM & TRAVEL IN THE GREEN ECONOMY SYMPOSIUM

In anticipation of the UN Climate Change Conference to be held in Copenhagen, 7-18 December, UNWTO has been working with the European Travel Commission (ETC) and VisitSweden to provide a comprehensive overview of how tourism can play a leading role in the development of a sustainable global economy. The joint Symposium on Tourism and Travel in the Green Economy (14-15 September, Gothenburg, Sweden), has been convened as part of UNWTO’s Davos Process to address how carbon neutrality and the development of sustainable consumption and production relates to the tourism sector. As such, the Gothenburg Symposium will make an important contribution both in support of ‘sealing the deal’ in Copenhagen and the longer road to a Green Economy.
