Tourism as a development tool

After the publication in 2017 of the first ISTO collection « Tourism in Action – 20 examples of social policies around the world », the second collection is published, in which Diesis Network was glad to contribute to.

The publication « Tourism as a development tool » presents 20 examples of responsible and fair tourism around the world, to show how tourism can contribute to building a more sustainable society if it respects a few simple principles. Carried out in different contexts, different countries, and on different scales, all these tourism projects have the same objective, to create positive impacts for all. This non-exhaustive list presents 20 inspiring initiatives or projects, carried out by men and women with strong values, in the four corners of the world.
