The online form for the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism is now live and we are urging organisations to sign up as soon as possible to demonstrate the urgency and momentum behind climate action in tourism. The Travel Foundation was part of the Drafting Committee for the Declaration, which is an urgent call for all stakeholders to commit to a decade of climate action in tourism.
Join us on launch-day!
4 November, 14:00 – 16:00 GMT
To mark the launch of the Glasgow Declaration, and as part of the official COP26 Climate Summit, the Future of Tourism Coalition is co-hosting an online event alongside VisitScotland, Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency, and NECSTouR, exploring the practical actions and enablers needed to achieve Net Zero in tourism.
The Travel Foundation will be making some big announcements about its future role in catalysing climate action, and there will be a panel discussion with speakers from various destinations, and an open forum which is your chance to ask questions and offer your perspectives.
Signatories of the Glasgow Declaration are committing to act now and accelerate climate action to cut global tourism emissions by at least a half over the next decade and reach Net Zero emissions as soon as possible before 2050. In particular, each signatory will commit to deliver a concrete climate action plan, or updated plan, within 12 months of signing. Plans will be aligned with the proposed pathways of measurement, decarbonisation, regeneration, collaboration and financing that will a
ccelerate tourism’s ability to transform.
