Tourism Community Declares Climate Emergency
Responsable tourism. Join the Tourism Declare Community
The 5 actions of Responsible Tourism
In Tumaini we have joined Tourism Declares. This is an initiative that supports organizations, companies and professionals in the tourism sector to declare a climate emergency and take steps to reduce their carbon emissions. According to the advice of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) global carbon dioxide emissions must be reduced to 55% in 2030 and tourism must assume its responsibility by taking immediate action to achieve this purpose collectively. To see the impact of these emissions on the planet, you can click here.
Responsible Tourism is everyone's responsibility: we must remember that there is no Sustainable tourism if there is no Responsible Tourism.
The Difference between Responsible Tourism and Sustainable Tourism lies in the fact that the first concept advocates a balance between natural and social resources and the economic development of tourism with a long-term focus. For this, it is necessary to implement and be aware of the correct sustainable tourism activities, which includes responsible tourism.
We also want to remind you that the Responsible Tourism is closely linked with the Sustainable Development Goals, and specifically with the Objective on climate change.
In Tumaini, like all the signatory individuals and organizations, by declaring with tourism declares we have committed to the following five actions:
1. develop a «climate emergency plan« within the next 12 months, setting out our intentions to reduce carbon emissions over the next decade.
2. Publicly declare our “Climate Emergency Plan” and update progress every year.
3. Accept the current advice from the IPCC which states the need to reduce global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030 in order to sustain the planet within 1.5 degree warming.
We will ensure that our "Climate Emergency Plan" represents Actions designed for this achievement. At a minimum, establish a system for the identification and measurement of emissions from our tourism operations and services.
4. Motivate our collaborators, the Tumaini projects to make the same statement; whatHow to make responsible tourism? share good practices and actively participate in the community tourism declares.

We have been working for years with projects that protect the environment: in India, Indonesia, Nepal, Bolivia, Peru and very soon, Cape Verde.
5. advocate for change: We recognize the need for a system change in all the tourism sector to accelerate a just transition towards low carbon tourism CO2 emissions.
