travel niches, including ecotourism, responsible tourism and conscious
travel. Since we don't advocate a one size fits all approach, actions are
more important than definitions.
For the past four years we have conducted 'Responsible Tourism Week' and in
2013 we host our 5th annual global unconference February 11-17.
You'll find details about the 2013 Responsible Tourism Week online our wiki
You can also register to attend on the Facebook event
If you are curious about responsible tourism, Responsible Tourism Week lets
you ask questions. It's a catalyst for many to get up to speed on
off-the-shelf social media. Exemplary performance will be recognized and
rewarded. Let's pool our talents and learn together. If you are not sure how
this works, check out the highlights from this year's RT Week
Another event we are hosting is Indigenous Peoples Week (August 6-12, 2012).
This focuses on indigenous tourism experiences and we welcome good examples
around the world.
This month we are paying attention to Rio+20 June 20-2
