“Tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities”

Sustainability is at the very core of UN Tourism International Centre Switzerland. We work towards the Sustainable Development Goals outlined by the United Nations. The objectives selected by the 2015 development agenda have been included as the target are goals 4, 8, 12 and 14 which refer to quality education, decent work and economic growth, responsible consumption and production & life below water. The environmental, economic, and socio-cultural aspects of tourism development and a suitable balance must be established between these three dimensions to guarantee its long-term sustainability.

Together with Bella Vista Institute of Higher Education, we have developed training and professional education programs that also focuses on sustainable tourism development.


“The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Learn more and take action.”
