Mumbai: September 25,2012

World Tourism Day (WTD) is held annually on 27 September. Its purpose is to foster awareness on the importance of tourism and its social, cultural and economic value. The events seeks to address global challenges to highlight the contribution of the tourism sector in overcoming these challenges.

 

This year, as part of UNWTO’s ongoing efforts to forge tourism’s contribution to sustainable development, World Tourism Day 2012 will be celebrated around the theme Tourism & Sustainable Energy : Powering Sustainable Development.

 

Tourism is leading the way in some of the world’s most innovative sustainable energy initiatives.  Energy efficient upgrades to aircraft, the shift to renewable fuel for aviation and cruise liners, energy technology solutions in hotels, as well as countless other initiatives are placing tourism at the forefront of the clean energy transformation. These initiatives not only help to protect the environment, they also play a vital role in ending ‘energy poverty’. Sustainable energy initiatives in tourism are creating economic opportunities and jobs for millions, whether in tourism, energy or other sectors.

 

On this occasion, India Tourism, Mumbai (Ministry of Tourism, Government of India) is organizing a Seminar in association with the Indian Merchant’s Chamber, Mumbai, Travel Industry to discuss the role of the Tourism sector in implementing new ideas to increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy in its operations.
