Exploring the Future of Sustainability Across Travel

Today, almost every sector of the travel industry has had to put sustainability front and center in its planning as travelers return. Beyond the need for increased advocacy and broadened sustainability goals, what actions are travel companies taking to truly create an industry that is not only better for the planet, but also communities and stakeholders throughout the tourism chain? 

Join us as we explore the actions being taken across the industry, led by Skift editors and research analysts presenting new findings and speaking with leaders across tourism, hospitality, and more. This online-only event will explore the new sustainability goals, traveler expectations, and also community-led approaches that will reshape how we travel and the impact it has in the decade ahead.

What we will discuss: 

What are travel companies doing to take action on climate change and create a more planet friendly future?

How can community-led experiences become more mainstream and how are suppliers educating travelers to these opportunities?

What are hospitality brands doing to scale their sustainability initiatives and how will that impact destinations?

How can tourism push for new success metrics in building back better?

What is the role of OTAs on fostering sustainability and social impact across sectors?

Will we see tourism truly transform for the better in the decade ahead?
