Athens, 20 January 2020 - The Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) has announced a new sustainable tourism seminar in Athens, through the GSTC’s Sustainable Tourism Training Program (STTP).

According to Sustainability Leaders, this particular seminar is the most recognised and trustworthy training program globally for certifying professionals in the field of Sustainable Tourism. Recent statements by the Greek Ministry of Tourism reveal that Sustainability will be one pillar, perhaps the most important, of the new national 10 Year Tourism Strategy while education and certification of individuals in the principles of sustainability and global affairs also becomes a primary objective!

Tourism professionals, private company representatives (hotels, tourist agencies etc.), destination management agencies, sectoral unions and other agencies that are interested in the Sustainable Tourism personnel training and certification program can register here. The three-day seminar will take place on March 11-13, 2020 at the MBC Business Centre, 106 Andrea Syggrou Av., 11741, Athens.

The seminar is organised by the GSTC representative for education matters in Southeastern Europe, Green Evolution SA, specialised in the field of Sustainable Tourism. GSTC is collaborating with training partners, like Green Evolution, in various regions and destinations, who support the GSTC mission of increasing the knowledge and uptake of sustainable tourism practices and offer the official Sustainable Tourism seminars on behalf of the GSTC.
