Webinar Description​

The Best Tourism Villages by UNWTO
Small Destinations, Learning Values, Promoting Community Wellbeing
The Best Tourism Villages by UNWTO promotes sustainable tourism for rural development. It recognizes outstanding villages that practice tourism development in harmony with their sociocultural, economic, and environmental resources while nurturing sustainable livelihoods in rural and small communities. UNWTO administrators in charge of this initiative will discuss the vision, mission, and objectives of the Best Tourism Villages, explaining how its activities are designed to bring representatives of small communities, tourism experts, and others from the public and private sectors together in order to collaborate on rural tourism development and to exchange knowledge for the benefit of all: the host community, guest, and stakeholders in tourism. The next webinar will introduce some of the recognized villages in 2021 and create a dialog to learn from their practices and experiences. Learn more
