The Travel Corporation (TTC) has announced its Diamond
Sponsorship of the UN International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development
2017, in partnership with the UNWTO for the duration of 2017. TTC is on a
continuing journey to ensure the environment and communities they visit remain
vibrant for generations to come. Through the years, TTC has supported more than
40 sustainability projects in nearly as many destinations across the globe.
"We were eager and honoured to support the UNWTO in this
latest initiative because we recognize that our sector has a tremendous
opportunity and responsibility to drive sustainable development around the
world," says Brett Tollman, Chief Executive, The Travel Corporation (TTC).
"In 2017, we look forward to helping mobilize industry stakeholders and
educate policy-makers as well as the general public about the value of tourism
to bring about positive change."
TTC joins several other travel and tourism organizations from
around the world as the first sponsors to join the UNWTO to support the program
of activities of the year.
