PARLIAMENTARY ASSEMBLY FOR SUSTAINBLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Tourism is practically included in three of the SDGs – SDG 8: 'Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all'; SDG 12: 'Sustainable Consumption and Production' and SDG 14: 'Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development', it can advance all 17 SDGs.
We have to mention that tourism is involved in the complete architecture of SDG`s and without his power of transformation and inclusiveness the goal of global development cannot be achieved.
The Global Ambassadors for Tourism and Sustainable Development Goals are leaders and prominent personalities committed to promote the role and contribution of tourism in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda.
