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.
Let us get one thing straight—sustainable travel is still a niche movement. No one expects some miraculous results overnight. In the meantime, the important thing is to keep learning.
In recent years, more and more tour operators are creating tours focused on the idea of responsible tourism, voluntarism, ecotourism, and geotourism. Namely, because there is an increase in interest in these types of tours.
