The United Nations General Assembly has held a second thematic event focused on tourism and the pivotal role the sector plays in promoting sustainable development and resilience.

At Forever Green, we recognize the transformative potential of tourism to promote sustainable development and resilience in our global communities. Therefore, we are pleased to highlight the second thematic event of the United Nations General Assembly, focused on tourism and its fundamental role in building a more sustainable future.

This event, held in collaboration with UN Tourism, brought together Member States, Observers, civil society organizations, and United Nations agencies in a collective effort to harness the power of tourism for inclusive and sustainable development. The growing participation reflects a collective commitment to addressing the environmental and social challenges associated with the tourism industry.

Zurab Pololikashvili, Secretary-General of UN Tourism, highlighted the importance of proactively addressing the underlying factors of tourism crises, such as unsustainable consumption contributing to climate change and biodiversity loss. In line with these efforts, the President of the General Assembly, Dennis Francis, emphasized the need for a global tourism sector that is sustainable and directly benefits local communities.

The event provided a high-level platform for sharing best practices and innovative strategies aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). From ministerial debates to informal meetings on the future of tourism, approaches to fostering sustainable and resilient tourism worldwide were explored.

At Forever Green, we believe in the importance of collaboration and forging partnerships to comprehensively address tourism challenges. We are committed to supporting sustainable tourism as a catalyst for positive change, working together with our partners and communities to build a future where tourism is a force for human and environmental well-being.

The adoption of a resolution to declare 2027 as the International Year of Sustainable and Resilient Tourism demonstrates a significant step forward. In collaboration with UN Tourism and other stakeholders, we are eager to contribute to the realization of this important thematic year, driving towards a more sustainable, inclusive, and resilient tourism for all.
