#TurismoRESET is a collective of professionals from the tourism sector set up at the beginning of the pandemic with two main objectives. First, to help solve the lack of union and defragmentation within the tourism sector, and to that aim, we built up a community embracing a wide and diverse representation of stakeholders involved in the tourism sector: public and private sector, academia, as well as tourists and citizens, all advocating for a better tourism. The second objective is to raise awareness and advocate for a truly sustainable tourism, evolving to a sector capable to respond to the global challenges we are facing as an industry and as a society. We also came up with a Manifesto for a new tourism committed to sustainability, a document intended to be a roadmap for the recovery from a sustainable and responsible perspective.
