G9. Rebalancing Communities, Nature and Tourism 

Rebalancing Communities, Nature and Tourism

Destination Support Group

February/March 2023 

About the programme

Travellers’ interest in wildlife, nature and indigenous communities has greatly increased over the last decades, but the COVID pandemic has dramatically shifted the balance between people, planet and profit. The implications strongly differ between the continents. Globally leading experts – covering all continents – will involve destinations in the search for a new balance in your part of the world. 

How to prepare

T1. Sustainable Tourism Destination Management and G2. SDGs and Global Standards for Planning will provide excellent preparation for this Group.

Programme duration

The Rebalancing Communities, Nature and Tourism group meetings will run in February/March 2023 (dates to be decided)  and will cover about 4 weeks of discussions, peer-to-peer learning and feedback sessions on building a harmony between Communities, nature and tourism. This includes the live sessions, independent readings, and small group interactive sessions. 

NOTE: Further information on the calendar of activities for this Working Group will be available soon.
