1st Destination Mekong Summit to discuss child protection measures

Chapter 9 – The Sustainability

Sustainability is something that needs to be part of the tourism recovery strategies, and it is an opportunity for many destinations to re-evaluate their strategies. NGOs will discuss the opportunity to restart tourism in a sustainable and responsible way, as well as the challenges in actually executing such a vision. How can restarting tourism integrate local communities and keep child protection in focus, as well as protect wildlife and conserve the environment by focusing on climate change and single-use plastic pollution.

General Manager of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), Mr Roi Ariel, will attempt to give some key action steps for businesses to focus on plastic pollution, climate change, child protection, and wildlife conservation, by drawing insights and recommendations from ECPAT International and the Wildlife Conservation Society.
