Skal joins ICTP

The International Council of Tourism Partners (ICTP) has announced that Skal International has joined the alliance as a partner association. ICTP chairman, Juergen T. Steinmetz, said: “Skal values sustainable development as the key to the industry’s future success and considers eco-tourism but one area of the various components of sustainable development. It is a tourism organization which cares about the possible implications of its activities and recognizes its responsibility in developing and operating in such a manner as to contribute positively in the protection and preservation of natural, social, and cultural environments.” Following the United Nations declaration of 2002 as the Year of Ecotourism and the Mountains, Skal International launched the Ecotourism Awards in the same year to highlight and acknowledge best practices around the globe.
