Official Launch of SwissTourism4SDGs - the Swiss dialogue on tourism & SDGs

The initiative aims to anchor the global Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) more firmly in the tourism industry. Alongside the Swiss Tourism Federation (STV), the consortium consists of the Swiss Foundation for Technical Development Cooperation Swisscontact, the myclimate foundation, the Swiss Travel Association (SRV), the University of Applied Sciences Graubünden, the Swiss Parks Network, the consulting firm ecos and gutundgut gmbh.

The initiative strives to achieve SDGs in a more targeted and effective way through knowledge sharing. The potential lies in better networking of all players in Swiss tourism and in promoting the exchange of practical experience.

The role of the SDG dialogue is to raise awareness of sustainability goals, bring knowledge together, find suitable partners for initiatives and actively communicate these within the network. In this sense, the Swiss Tourism Dialogue does not develop its own projects, but brings together committed partners.
