International e-conference: Promoting Sustainable and Social Travel in Europe

After presenting the six proposals for a social and sustainable tourism in Europe to the European Parliament in November 2020, the European Network for Sustainable Travel envisages to actively contribute to a collective effort of supporting more resilient, responsible, harmonious and social tourism in line with the new reality caused by the Covid-19 crisis. In parallel, Portugal has launched in 2020 a comprehensive action plan for the development of sustainable tourism which foresees the involvement of hotels in reducing energy consumption, a training policy for sustainable tourism actors and the creation of a network of stakeholders contributing to a greener tourism in the next years.

Building on these two efforts, the European Network for Sustainable Travel and “Turismo de Portugal”, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture of Portugal, the Council of Europe, the European Commission, the European Parliament (TRAN committee), universities and the Faro Convention Network, are organising an e-conference entitled “Promoting Sustainable and Social Travel in Europe” on 21 April 2021 to discuss the future steps in this direction.
