On World Tourism Day 2020, Responsible Tourism Society of India (RTSOI) shared its Responsible Traveller campaign. Supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, the campaign aims to establish India as a ‘Sustainable Tourism Destination’ where the traveller, the tourism industry and the government will need to join hands for responsible action. The Responsible Traveller Campaign by RTSOI is also supported by the Confederation of Indian Industries ( CII ), International Union for Conservation of Nature ( IUCN ) and Wildlife SOS , calls out to everyone to take a pledge and follow The Responsible Traveller Guidelines.
“The journey to make a difference to our Travel Industry started with a band of us in the 90’s with a focus to bring about good eco practices. Then we helped the governments both at the Centre and the State to help frame sustainable tourism policies as the Ecotourism Society of India. On this World Tourism Day 2020 we have now launched the Responsible Traveller campaign to sensitise travellers and to complete this loop. As they say – a thousand mile journey starts with a single step and we believe we have walked a few by now,” shared Rakesh Mathur, President, RTSOI.
