Conversation series organized by World Tourism Forum Lucerne (WTFL) & WTM Responsible Tourism


The importance of striking a balance between the environmental, economic, and social dimensions of sustainable development.

A burning issue is biodiversity. Biodiversity is declining faster than at any time in human history.

Tourism and biodiversity have a symbiotic relationship – positive and negative. We are committed to:

  • Promoting dialogue on responsible tourism as an eco-system service that promotes the conservation of biodiversity.
  • Documenting and amplifying best practices in our sector that promote consumer awareness.
  • Working with other stakeholders in our industry to advance this agenda together.
