The Sustainable Development Goals, ratified at the United Nations in 2015 and set to guide global development through to 2030, urge governments, industry and communities alike to engage in direct efforts to work in more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable ways.

As one of the world’s largest industries, tourism should address sustainability issues head on. There is certainly a great deal of rhetoric on the virtues and promise of tourism as a tool for sustainable development, and there have been positive steps towards sustainability by many companies, governments and others. However, it is also claimed that the tourism industry has oversold its sustainable potential.

The Tourism4SDGs19 conference on Tourism and the SDGs offers the opportunity for a wide range of scholars and tourism stakeholders to discuss and debate both (i) challenges to tourism contributing to the SDGs, and (ii) ways in which tourism can deliver on its potential to be more inclusive, equitable and sustainable, in line with the values embedded in the Global Goals.

We encourage delegates to register to attend, submit a paper or register their organisation’s interest in participating in the tourism industry showcase.
