World Tourism Day Conclave in Mumbai enforces Sustainable Tourism

UNWTO, Global Sustainable Tourism Council, Maharashtra Tourism and Consul Generals from many parts of the globe and the stalwarts of the Tourism fraternity celebrated World Tourism Conclave and Awards organized by Creed Entertainment and Young Environmentalists in association with Climate Reality Project India, focusing on Sustainable Tourism with great success. The conclave called for a greater fight against Climate change in the Tourism industry and enforcement of Sustainable tourism norms and also awarded successful organizations in the Sustainable industry.

On the occasion Mr. Vijay Waghmare MD of the Maharashtra Tourism Development board, said, “Maharashtra has it all Beaches, Hills, Forests and wilderness; we welcome tourists to our state to enjoy our Natural Tourism Destinations. It is now up to us to improve civic sense and keep our natural heritage clean. Enjoy your travel but respect the environment, we must understand that Sustainable Tourism leads to sustainable Development, we are proud of our Western Ghats, Beaches, Wildlife Parks and Eco Friendly Destinations like Matheran.”

Traveler and Researcher on Anthropology and Climate change around many remote corners of the earth, Tanya Satish, CEO of Creed Entertainment, Powai Mumbai, said, “Our natural wilderness and open spaces are often taken for granted just because they exist through nature and not carved out or constructed. These ecological areas are our natural heritage sites which are living trees, corals and wildlife, they too tell us a story and keep biological biodiversity record of certain species and evolution which for us Young people is Sustainable natural inheritance. Leave it intact for us Young people. We do not need your leftovers.”

Elsie Gabriel, Founder Young Environmentalists Programme and Mentor of Climate Reality Project, shared her view and implementation of the same on this year’s theme ‘Sustainable Tourism – a Tool for Development’,  “The conclave explored the contribution of tourism to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We request MTDC to take the Powai Lake under its Tourism scheme to save it. We must clean up our own backyards, lanes and Locality to really be involved in Sustainable Tourism. We also need to make the module on Sustainable Tourism compulsory in all Travel and hospitality courses.”
