The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) this week will kick off its series of travel- and tourism-focused virtual events titled “One Voice – Towards a Brighter Future”.
The series of events is designed to shed light on the devastating impact the coronavirus (Covid-19) is having on the Travel & Tourism sector, and how an internationally coordinated approach, is vital in order to lead us on the road to recovery.
The first event of the series will be “One Voice – Accelerating the Sustainability Agenda”, taking place on September 24 in the context of Climate Week NY. Last year, during the same week, WTTC held its first Climate and Environmental Action Forum where the sector launched its ambition to Climate Neutrality by 2050.
“One Voice – Accelerating the Sustainability Agenda”
With an introduction by Gloria Guevara, WTTC’s President & CEO, this year’s discussion will be moderated by BBC’s Ros Atkins and will feature UNFCCC’s Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa, and Darrell Wade, WTTC’s Vice-Chair of Sustainability.
Focusing on the theme “Sustainable Travel & Tourism”, this webinar is part of The Climate Week NYC official events program.
Together, the panel will discuss how we can be more responsible stewards and work together to take action to address climate change, as well as how this topic has been accelerated in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The WTTC’s “One Voice – Accelerating the Sustainability Agenda” will take place at 03:00 PM BST.
