The Global Sustainable Tourism Dashboard has been designed with stakeholder input. It provides a mechanism to measure global tourism contribution across a broad range of sustainability dimensions and assesses the effectiveness of the actions taken to mitigate negative impacts and enhance opportunities. The first edition, the 2016 Dashboard, is now complete and this event is both a launch and an opportunity to advance the Dashboard, both in terms of measurement and its use case.
Key experts and stakeholders have been invited to this event. If you are interested in joining them please contact Professor Graham Miller, Head of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Surrey.
9.30 – 10.30 Welcome and launch of the 2016 Dashboard 1.0
10.30 – 10.50 Refreshment break
10.50 – 12.00 Workshop, next steps and close
