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.
How are destinations responding to the impacts of Covid-19 on the business and leisure tourism industry?
In this interview, Leena Lassila (Director, Global Sales, Helsinki Marketing) shares how Helsinki has combined the need for immediate action, with the vision of a sustainable reboot of the industry.
The Global Destination Sustainability Movement is a transformation platform that engages, inspires and enables destinations to become more regenerative, flourishing and resilient places to visit, meet and live in.
