The Global Destination Sustainability Index (GDS-Index), celebrates the launch of the Global Destination Sustainability Movement (GDS-Movement), a platform to promote and develop the regenerative thinking and practices that will support destinations of the future.
On the 8th of July, we announced the launch of the Global Destination Sustainability Movement, a platform that will promote and develop the regenerative thinking and practices that will support destinations of the future.
As part of the GDS-Movement Launch Webinar, we had a special keynote with Ed Gillespie, our resident Futurist. He is an internationally acclaimed inspirational speaker, director of Greenpeace, and author of "Only Planet: Around the World Without Flying".
As part of the GDS-Movement launch we had a short, moderated panel discussion with destination representatives, during which they shared their most recent steps towards regeneration. Represented were Nantes, Flanders, and Sapporo.
The GDS-Movement unites and enables destination management professionals to create flourishing and resilient places to visit, meet and live in. Our mission is to co-create sustainable and circular strategies, mindsets and skill sets that will enable destinations of the future to thrive, and society and nature to regenerate.
