Last Thursday, the 28th of October, I contributed a lecture to the first "Forum Duurzaam Toerisme", organised by Toerisme Vlaanderen. This Forum is ment to be organised every year, and is dedicated to motivate the industry to adapt best practices of sustainable tourism. Other interesting speakers were oa. Peter De Wilde (administrateur Generaal Toerisme Vlaanderen), Griet Geudens (responsible for sustainability Toerisme Vlaanderen), Mirjam Dresmé (ANVR NL) and Wendy Pletinck (Thomas Cook) on how far they got apdapting the Travelife initiative.
Apart of the presentations, there were some intersting debates afterwards on how to adapt sustainability (the dirvers, the barriers) in tourism.
Please not that the presentation is in the lay-out of the new eco-startup 'Studio Spark' ; - )
