Platform created for responsible tourism

It is becoming critically important to have a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to the way society lives and does business.

It is no different for the tourism sector, and West Coast Tourism Organisation has been championing a responsible tourism project by creating awareness of the positive spin-offs and benefits of pursuing tourism in a sustainable manner.

The Responsible Tourism Conference, which takes place on 30 October at the West Coast Fossil Park, will create a platform for tourism stakeholders to share best practices in responsible tourism.

The Goedgedacht Trust, just outside the Riebeek Valley, has been identified as a pilot project for 2018, in which responsible tourism initiatives have been implemented.

The non-profit organisation has been making a contribution to the transformation of impoverished rural communities by addressing poverty, particularly poverty that affects the lives of rural children and youth, as its objective.

Collaboration between the Responsible Tourism Programme and the existing projects of the Goedgedacht Trust aims to capacitate and upskill the youth, enabling them to have easier access to the job market.

Delegates attending the Responsible Tourism Conference will get the opportunity to listen to experts, who will participate in panel discussions as well as presentations by industry leaders.

Tourism stakeholders who are interested in attending the Responsible Tourism Conference, at no cost, are encouraged to contact Kiewiet van Rooyen at West Coast Tourism Organisation on 022 433 8505 or email hvanrooyen@wcdm.co.za.
