There is another ‘Day’ to add into you general knowledge about tourism list. It’s ‘World Responsible Tourism Day 2012′. The official activity of this World Responsible Tourism Day will be held in London on 7th November 2012. You can browse the official website here.
Responsible Tourism is not another tourism sector or niche market. Responsible Tourism is a global practice supported by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). So they create the network among tour operators globally to spread the word about what is responsible tourism.
The meaning is easily understood, to be responsible in what ever we do when involve in tourism activities. Whether as a tourist or tourism operator. Responsible to the environmental, social and economics impact. You can read about The 2002 Cape Town Declaration on Responsible Tourism in Destinations here.
