Online Symposium 2022 - Human Rights and Climate Change: The Benefits of Linking Both Agendas in Tourism


The recording will soon be available!

Thursday, 06 October, 11 AM - 02:30 PM CEST

Corporate responses to climate change include a broad range of business decisions - all of them have the potential to impact human rights. At the same time, human rights due diligence has great potential to support effective climate-related decision-making.

Tourism as a service-oriented sector strongly depends on social responsibility and respect for human rights. Tourism activities contribute to climate change, and climate change affects every link in the tourism value chain.

This online event offers inputs around a human-rights-based approach to climate action in tourism through practical steps and shared experiences. We will elaborate on tangible ideas and how to combine both strategies.
