Tourism and Culture Initiatives Global Registry

In recent years, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) organized four joint world conferences on tourism and culture and published summary declarations of each conference:

  • 2015 Siem Reap Declaration on Tourism and Culture – Building a New Partnership Model
  • 2017 Muscat Declaration on Tourism and Culture: Fostering Sustainable Development
  • 2018 Istanbul Declaration on Tourism and Culture: For the Benefit of All
  • 2019 Kyoto Declaration on Tourism and Culture: Investing in Future Generations

Following those conferences, researchers from several worldwide leading academic institutions and UNWTO Affiliate Members, under the leadership of the World Centre of Excellence for Destinations (CED), launched the Tourism and Culture Initiatives Online Global Registry, a joint research initiative whose goals are to:

  • Enhance awareness and visibility for tourism and culture initiatives conducted by local and regional destination stakeholders.
  • Develop and disseminate knowledge in the field of tourism and culture synergies

We would like to invite you and your contacts in the tourism industry to participate in the Registry. Please reach out to organizations and pertinent actors who may not be aware of this exciting project. Tourism and Culture initiatives are broad and varied. They may, for example, include traditional national or religious celebrations, commemorative events, native culture celebrations, patrimonial initiatives, etc. The Registry represents an unmatched opportunity for local and regional initiatives to increase their local, national, and global visibility. Registration is free.
