Reflections on 2015 Sustainable Tourism Summit in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country

Last month, we were invited to attend the International Sustainable Tourism Summit organized by the Instituto de Turismo Responsable (ITR), the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and the Basque Tourism Authority (Basquetour), held in the region’s capital city of Vitoria-Gasteiz.
