    Tourism in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

    The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was adopted in September 2015 by all UN-member states. The strength of the 2030 Agenda is its universality, its complexity and its vision to transform our world. It addresses the way we are living and challenging the lifestyle of a lucky few, that is harming the opportunities for the sustainable development of the vast majority of people on earth.

    Its groundbreaking title “Transforming our World” offers a great opportunity towards positive change as it clearly rejects the idea of a passive business as usual-approach. Sustainable tourism is mentioned several times in the 2030 Agenda. This is an acknowledgement of the global significance of the sector, but at the same time an obligation to transform the current tourism model.

    With this homepage and the Berlin Declaration we want not only encourage further reflection and debate, but activities and actions.

    The Transforming Tourism Initiative is an open global network of NGOs, tourism practitioners and academia that demands a transformation of tourism in line with the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.
