With more people traveling now more than ever, over-tourism and overcrowding destinations are a serious threat to the environment, local communities, and city heritage.
In 2015, the United Nations proclaimed 2017 the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. This is of great significance, especially in this day and age, because humanity finally set its aims to supporting a change in policies, travel practices, and tourist behavior towards the strategy of responsible tourism.
What’s important is that tour operators and travel agents can largely contribute to sustainable tourism development.
