TIES Announces the Oslo Statement on Ecotourism

The International Ecotourism Society (TIES) has released the Oslo Statement on Ecotourism, which is an outcome of the Global Ecotourism Conference 2007, held in Oslo, Norway this past May. On the fifth anniversary of the International Year of Ecotourism, the statement highlights ecotourism's past achievements and future challenges, and provides recommendations about ecotourism's roles in protecting the world's natural and cultural heritage through changes to the travel industry. The statement was developed based on workshop themes and topics of the conference, with input from speakers, moderators and conference participants, as well as comments from others submitted online.
