FiturNext Manifesto


FiturNext is a vision of change and a call for better tourism.
We, the Fitur community, set out on a global expedition to showcase tourism initiatives and models with positive personal, social, cultural and environmental impact for people, places and the planet.


This is your invitation to join our journey

 




Our Point of Departure


  • ticTravel and tourism is one of the key drivers of global and local economy. At the present growth rate of 6%, it is estimated that, by 2030, tourism will represent 12% of the global GDP and there will be 1.8 bn. travelers in the world.

  • ticTourism is a powerful source of economic and cultural development. Beyond its economic impact, tourism is also a valuable catalyst for cultural and natural wealth creation across the globe. It facilitates the exchange between cultures and individuals and fosters personal growth for travelers.

  • ticHowever, tourism can also have adverse effects on climate, environment and communities with overexploitation of resources and excessive visitor pressure on a rising number of destinations. It is apparent that we need to rethink the purpose of practice of tourism in this context.

 




We believe in tourism with positive impact


  • ticAt Fitur, we believe there are models in tourism that have a vast potential to make the world better.

  • ticWe believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to pursue positive impact on nature, communities and culture.

  • ticWe see the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations as a powerful and inspirational framework for innovation of practices and products in travel and tourism.

  • ticWe stand for the power of diversity and curiosity – not only as a gift to the explorative traveler, but also as the very root of innovation and new insights.

  • ticWe believe that participation and collaboration among diverse actors in the sector, local communities and visitors is key to driving these tourism models.
