The Global Destination Sustainability Movement is a collaborative platform that acts to catalyse transformation in the tourism and events industry, by engaging, inspiring and enabling destinations to become more regenerative, flourishing and resilient places to visit, meet and live in.
We seek to accelerate the transformation from destination marketing at whatever cost, towards destination management and stewardship that offers shared value. Our mission is to promote and develop the sustainability and circular strategies, skill sets and mindsets that will enable destinations of the future to thrive.
The GDS-Movement evolved from the Global Destination Sustainability Index; the world’s leading sustainability benchmarking and performance improvement programme for destinations, and their visitor economy. It is a collaborative partnership between ICCA, IMEX Exhibitions, European Cities Marketing, MCI Group and GUBI consulting
We are a passionate, dynamic and growing team, totally committed to building a regenerative economy. We love time in nature, a healthy work life balance, laughing and living life to the full.
