global tourismA leading tourism activist, Professor Marina Novelli of the University of Brighton’s professor of tourism and international development, is calling for a huge change in tourism, to make the industry more sustainable, just and inclusive. He is a significant contributor towards tourism development and a signatory to the Berlin Declaration on Transforming Tourism.

 
The declaration, developed and signed by eminent civil societies from 19 countries in Africa, Asia Europe and Latin America, says the “current dominant tourism model is not able to support the necessary transformation of our world envisaged by the 2030 Agenda”, the agenda set out by the United Nations for sustainable development.

 
The declaration further says, “On the contrary, in too many cases it is exploiting people, harming communities, violating human rights and degrading the environment.

 

Transforming our world is not possible without transforming tourism.” The declaration came after a three-day workshop in Berlin, organised by Bread for the World – Tourism Watch, a charity committed to raising tourists’ understanding about responsible travel.

 
To quote Professor Novelli, “We are calling on as many individuals and organisations as possible to sign the declaration.” He will be talking on related issues about Travel and Tourism in the Age of Sustainability on Wednesday.
