Sustainable tourism awareness – SPTO holds first media roundtable session in Suva

Published on : Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Sustainable tourismSustainable tourism might be a new phrase to many people, just like climate change a few years ago.

 
The UNWTO defines sustainable tourism as: “Tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities.”

 
In order to create awareness on sustainable tourism, the South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO) held its first media roundtable session with members of the media in Fiji and from the region last Thursday in Suva.

 
The Roundtable is a platform for SPTO to connect with the media, to inspire a better understanding of sustainable tourism and initiate a collaborative effort on how to effectively communicate sustainable tourism to all audiences and stakeholders.

 
In 2015, the Pacific Sustainable Tourism Alliance (PSTA) was formed as a public-private partnership with the SPTO to assist in fast track sustainability in the region.

 
The destinations taking part in the preliminary stage of the project are Fiji and Samoa; however, the eventual intention is to expand to other Pacific Islands.
