World Tourism Day + First Nature Tours
The UNWTO is a specialized agency of the United Nations with a focus on tourism around the world. This agency promotes sustainable tourism with the 4 pillars of sustainability being: people, planet, profit, and recently added climate change. That means a sustainably minded tourism company should have principles and guidelines to ensure they are promoting sustainability in each of the pillars.
Each year, UNWTO hosts #WorldTourismDay with a theme to expand our thinking and create change within the industry. This year’s theme is “Rethinking Tourism”. Rethinking tourism focuses on how the tourism industry is a crucial pillar of development (source).
We are so proud at First Nature Tours to be ahead of the game by starting our regenerative tourism tours in 2021 and moving forward by adding these principles to all our tours and expanding our corporate social responsibility. We believe in “focusing on the future” through our actions, partnerships, and the power of travel.
In the upcoming year, we hope you continue to learn and grow with us as we expand our tourism offerings to incorporate our values clearly such as healing with nature through restorative add-ons to all trips we offer, big and small.
