Read all about it!  The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) has partnered up with the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in an attempt to enhance sustainability within the global tourism sector.

Wow, why this wasn’t done sooner is beyond me, but better late than never, right?

The recently launched Global Partnership for Sustainable Tourism (GPST) is composed of five UN organizations,  governments, multilateral bodies, the private sector and non-governmental organizations.  GPST aims to “transform tourism worldwide”, through uniting the existing sustainable tourism initiatives around the world so that they can transfer experience and practices and put them into action. The Partnership will share knowledge, collect successful initiatives and replicate them to meet global needs.
